2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

Thanks Clifford. Pours light orange with a fizzy fading pale head. Bright hop and citrus aroma. Bit of funky pot-like hops, watery fruit flavor, and a hint of malt. Very sharp carbonation and plenty of hop bitterness. Very good use of hops, but it could stand to bring out some of the complementary flavors.

This kind of sucks. Totally out of balance with burnt and grainy notes but also some citrus. After one sip all I could think was, what the hell?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very shy pale ale. Just a wisp of hops in the aroma and the taste is lightly sweet with a surprisingly full maltiness (yes, I’m inventing a word--deal with it). A quick finish leaves a hint of the malty sweetness. Found the Stranger in the brother-in-law’s beer refrigerator and, after I finished it, I looked for something else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours gold with small offwhite head. Aroma is bready, caramel and faint hints of citrus. Taste is sweet with minimal bitters. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Not as crisp as I usually like in pale ales.

Bottle to pint glass. I can’t really tell the color, as this is a green mason jar. I think it’s a clear yellow. Has an off white head, with good lacing. Has a funny corn odor to it. Mouthfeel isn’t too bad. It’s kinda like a rye ale. Light to medium body.
