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.

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.

Very common pale ale here. slight orange tinged yellow color. Aroma is orange, sour grapefruit and grass. Slight citrus hop taste. Watery mouth-feel with not very crisp carbonation. Forgettable.

Milky yellow with a thin white head that fades into a ring around the brewski. Aroma is very floral with citrus, bready malt and grains. Taste is right down the middle with floral and grassy hops, caramel and minor bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light gold with a frothy white head, mostly diminishing. The aroma shows notes of resin, toasted grain, bread. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. The finish is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A thin beer with not a lot of depth or character. Taste of citrus and grain and they leave an off taste in the finish. Below average APA.
