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. Itís strangely satisfying.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pours crystal clear dark yellow with white head. Good carbonation. Aroma of cardboard, florals and butterscotch. Taste is mostly metallic. Infected or just this bad? No redeeming quality to this beer. Pass.

Well, I guess this is their replacement for Jackmanís American Pale. It doesnít appear to be just a relabel/rename unfortunately. Nope, woah, tasting it now....huh-uh, this is not Jackmanís with a new name. Shoot, I will miss Jackmanís, this should be named Stranger Danger. Glad I only got one, now to go buy up all the Jackmanís I can find before itís gone forever. Fishy aroma, light yellow in color, sock taste...Left Hand even admits itís questionable right up front in their wording. Why, why would they swap this out for Jackmanís?

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2011
Appearance: Served a clear, light copper-orange body with a scant, wispy white head and some steady if sporadic effervescence. Sheet-like lacing on the way down. Smell: Modest nose scented of lightly toasted bread, caramel, spicy rye, citrus fruits, and wet, soggy grains. Taste: Lightly bready malts, lightly sweet and with some touches of grain, caramel, and zestful rye malt. Lightly earthy hops also delivering some fruity touches of oranges and lemons. Sufficiently bitter. A skosh more lemon on the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Well-balanced and keenly drinkable, without ever giving too much or too little maltiness or aimlessly wandering into being an IPA with excessive bitterness. A good replacement of Jackmanís. Good-bye and good riddance, Jack.

notalush (4948) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2011
Clear golden pour - fizzy, quickly dissipating head - nose of floral hops, rye, honey, toast - flavor is initially of crackery malts - this, coupled with faint diacetyl makes it taste a bit more British - diacetyl seems intentional and is not strong or off-putting - tail end gets a little more dry, as spicy rye comes to the fore, finishing with lightly peppery hops - light, crisp, subtle - a so-so lawnmower beer.

pacond (187) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2011
Pale yellow color, I donít get any off flavors. It is crisp, floral beer and a little spicy hop finish. The soft mouthfeel kills the crisp floral aspects of this beer at the end, though.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear light orange and gold with a small, frothy beige head. Aromas of pine, sugar, slight citrus, and some funky malt. Light pine and citrus hop flavor, with some sweet malt. Below average. [647]

jredmond (5548) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 2, 2011
Draft at Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Linh, Streets, Andrew, and Brendan. Not a big fan of this guy.

HonusWagner (1508) - Florida, USA - APR 1, 2011
Three cheers for diacetyl! Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray! Even four beers in I could tell this one was not so good.

HonkeyBra (3475) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Extremely clear yellow-orange pour with small white head that dissipates into nothingness. Aroma of yeast and spicy hops. Maybe a weird smokiness? Flavor is somewhat bitter, strong burnt popcorn. Lots of diacetyl. Not good. Lots of carbonation. Iím wondering if this is a bad bottle. Really gross, actually.

3.7
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Butters (3808) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Near clear golden amber pour with fading khaki head. Nose is floral and slightly spicy. The flavor is more spicy hops with citrus finish. Rye on the tail end? Pretty good pale ale actually. Sharp spicy lingering bite.
