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.

Amber body, small white head. Light and a bit boring aroma, malty, some fruity hops but not by far as much as expected. Taste is a tad better, balanced between malt and hops, but still a bit tame. Kind of a sweet finish ends the beer as boring as it starts.

tdcritch (153) - Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Usually like IPA better, but this had a nice sweet aroma. Appearance was clear golden. Taste sweet at first then finished with a slight bitter on the palate. Overall a great easy drinking pale ale.

Sigmund (5462) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2012
Small sample, on tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Deep golden colour, large head. Lovely hoppy and spicy aroma and flavour - an excellent beer, as far as I could tell. Will rerate as soon as I get a bigger sample (had to drive tonight).

Bottle. I think the faceless silhouette on the bottle was appropriate for this beer. It had a small amount of spice flavor and a slight bitterness. Mostly, it was bland.

j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with a medium sized white head. Soft spicy hops on the nose, a touch of earthy breadiness. Sweeter than expected, but still nice. Thick sweet malt and grain backbone, nice body to it. Medium bodied, gets a touch grainy. Nice earthy hop notes. Gets a nice bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, fairly sessionable.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2012
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-09-04) Hazy golden with a small, lacy and lasting head. Orange, peach, citrus, pale malt in the nose. Oranges and peachy-fruity smoothness in the flavor, but unfortunately the finish has a bit rough and acidic bitterness. Quite light body with low CO2. Drinkable, but somewhat lame, low-ABV, fruity APA.

strongpieman (1560) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle. Floral hop aroma is moderate. Yellow, clear, light head. Medium carbonation. Rye and bitterness in the taste. A pale with plenty of flavor and character.

Lubiere (10700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
A golden ale with a thick lacing white head. In aroma, nice light floral hops with light citrusy notes, very classic. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with light floral hops, and mineral notes, not bad. Sampled at Bierkraft, Dec. 27 2011.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle. Light amber color with a very small white head. Citrus aroma. Sweet citrus, clove and caramel malt flavors. Watery texture with average carbonation. Enough flavor to make it interesting but thin enough to be refreshing.
