COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sane or senseless? Harmless or harmful? Sometimes it takes awhile to get to know a stranger. Initial impressions are not always reality, so you must delve deeper. Beyond the initial floral hop aromas, malt sweetness is revealed, yet with a spicy undertone that exposes a very rye sense of humor. Take your time to get to know the Stranger. It’s strangely satisfying.

bottled 3/12/11. consumed 4/5/11. clear. very orange shade of yellow with a small ow head. smells kinda british spicy?...a little dank, sweaty yeast, light pine, floral, metal and woody notes in there as well. the flavor is very metallic.... it doesn’t blow off like usual even after it sits for a while. also, noted are pale malt without the sweetness, wood and flowers. theres a light saltiness in the aftertaste. sharply carbonated and crisp. not bad, just a little boring... although highly crushable. 6/3/6/3/13

I must disagree with some of the earlier contributors: I think this works very well. Maybe it isn’t as big or hoppy as others offerings, but it’s a pale ale, and compared to other pale ales, it measures up well. Hazy golden with a persistent head and good lacing. Sweet caramel malt mixed with floral hops works just as well here as chocolate-covered pretzels do as a salty/sweet snack. Easy drinking and not filling.

Scrapersnbeer (1469) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Hazy traffic light yellow beer with average floral and hop aromas. Intensely bitter but also a little sweet. Probably a result of adding rye. Too dry to be termed refreshing but not full bodied enough to be filling. Very funny to a Stranger from the Left Hand, but they could have chosen a better brew to make the joke with.

rbrazell (1635) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Pours clear pale golden straw with a small white head. Nose is faint citrus and pine hops with bready malt. Flavor very light pine hops and grainy malt. Crisp and light beer. Boring beer.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Hazy yellow color with thin white lacing. Aroma has mild citur peel feel with a slight muskiness to it. Palate isnice for a pale ale. Nothing spectacular but a fine drinking beer.

ekstedt (5413) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2011
Draught at Ölreprubliken, Göteborg, Sweden. Shady deep golden with medium white head. Mild citrusy and floral hop aroma with notes of tropical fruits. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Semi-dry with medium bitterness.

Cavie (3793) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle from Central Market. This beer pours a clear light orange color with a small ring of white head. The aroma is pretty light. Grainy, faint hops and leaves. Not much there. The flavor matches the aroma in that it’s rather plain. Slightly sweet grains, dry notes that end in a hoppy bitterness. Nothing special really.

It poured a copper color with a small white head. The aroma was caramel and citrus with some rye notes. The flavor was bitter with some citrus and nutty notes.

On tap at Barley’s. The rye in here is a cool twist. The hop notes are nice and grassy up front, then finish with a lingering bitterness which reacts rather interestingly with the rye. I would definitely drink it again, but all the same, there are a lot of options out there and a full 6-pack might last me a while. Rye in a beer is good on occasion, but I find that a little goes a long way.

A solid, crisp, refreshing lager. Not world class or life changing but very solid. Pours a golden yellow with a white head that laces nicely. Nose & taste are of floral hops, grain, and hay field. Worth grabbing.
