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.

ekstedt (5441) - 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 (3795) - 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.

bruwery (35) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2011
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.

JoePeesie (860) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2011
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.

rangerred (926) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Had on tap at Dewey’s Pizza in West Chester, OH Clear, light copper with a small one finger head. Earthy hops was the first smell I picked up on. There is a bit of bready malt but it takes a backseat to the hops. Hops dominate the taste initially but once again they are more grassy/earthy rather than citrus. The hop flavor drops off pretty rapidly and there is somewhat of a void afterwards. No real maltiness. Very light mouthfeel. Overall this was an average APA that I honestly thought seemed more British than American. Not sure I would seek it out again.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pours clear, light gold with a 1 finger, creamy white head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus, cereal grain, toast, a touch of caramel and planty hops. Flavor is sweet citrus, toast, a little toffee, earthy grain and planty hops. Mineral notes and slightly bitter citrus hops round out the finish. Palate is light bodied, slightly slick on entry, fairly dry from there on out and moderately carbonated. Pretty average APA, nice hops profile for an easy going, everybody might like it sort of beer.

fiercepanda (548) - Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2011
A hazy golden amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is yeast, hay, and citrus. The flavor is bitter floral and citrus, very standard and just okay.

foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2011
On tap at A Tavola. Clear golden brown with a thin white head. Aroma of very subtle citrus hops with a dominant malt background. Taste is also light on hops with a big biscuity malt backing. Watery thin on the palate. Easy to drink, but lacking in flavor.

RobertDale (3473) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, malt and a bit of hops. Taste is similar. Not outstanding, but very drinkable.
