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.

sayravai (4691) - 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 (1589) - 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 (11004) - 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.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Drank in a shaker. Poured a light copper with a small head. The aroma was very subdued. Good balanced taste but the end was a little off somehow.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a short lived head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is somewhat watery with a faint hop bite. finish is bland. Overall an underachieving APA that leaves little to be desired. Cool label.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2011
This had a clear straw/gold body with a modest, but lasting, head and left plenty of lace. The aroma was grainy with some citrus notes. The flavor was citrusy, mildly bitter, and balanced well with the pale malt sweetness. Easy drinking and quite sessionable.

Onslow (1256) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz blttle. Clear amber brew with white head. Aroma of sour hops, light malts, mineral water. Taste is light grains at the start with a nice hoppy finish, rather unique sour / spiciness to it.
