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.

Dark murky gold with a light white head, watery, thin cap...weak nose with a little hops, toffee and wet grains, boring... Tastes terrible, bitter alcohol, generic hops, skunky too... This is utter garbage not worth trying

Bottle. No date on this one that I could find. Poured into a New Belgium tulip style glass a clear, honey golden color with a slight off white head that has a pretty poor retention. The head does collar slightly around the glass. The aroma is a slightly skunky citrus note that like over ripe grapefruit and orange. Medium mouthfeel. Muted citrus flavors with a slight sweetness. Rather bland in flavor to be honest with a minimal hop presence. Even in the back end there is minimal flavors. Overall, this is a subpar APA that I would not consider buying anytime soon.

Dry Rye. That sums up this beer in a nushell. Limited Aroma. Dry, malty pale ale. Very drinkable with some mexican cousine.

rougeau13 (2081) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2011
Clear golden with a lacing, puffy white head that lasts forever. Aroma of citrus and pine and pale malt. Tastes like tortilla chips, pale malt and hay. Medium-thin. The aroma is MUCH better than the taste.

Beaver (1373) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is biscuity malts and grassy hops.

The flavor is biscuity malts with some sweetness, leading to a good sized grassy / peppery bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of watery.

Overall, I didnít really care for this. It had good bitterness for an APA, but I donít really like biscuity malts or grassy bitterness.

Pours bright deep gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Sour pine aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning to pumpernickel before the lasting sour resin finish.

stabzmcgee (72) - Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2011
Aroma is of basement and old books. Bland and that of coors/light. Slighty grassy hops with a light malt/bitter finish. Palate is decent but not special- somewhat fizzy and slightly oily. Overall... Not the best from left hand.But I would drin it over bud light or pabst.

cheap (4351) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2011
From a bottle. Pop and the smell is uh oh very piney and fresh. Looks like a pale lager in the glass, perhaps a tad darker yellow. A little bold on the first taste with that piney aroma carrying over to the flavor. Seems to be a little stronger than 5%. Rubs me a little the wrong way, but of course, its an ale and most ales do. Bitter finsh reminds me of many strong pils. Nifty label.

drowland (6517) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2011
4/8/11. On tap. Clear amber pour with a nice fluffy off-white head. Wow, really nice hop aroma - it smells like Iím whiffing hops from the bag while brewing, with a soft malt backing. Lighter flavor with a solid hint of the hops but a more forward malt profile. This reminds me of homebrew for some reason

madvike (3010) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2011
Bottle - Clear, light yellow pour with a huge foamy white head. Light, crackery malt with a bit of spiciness and light herbal hops. Not very pungent--really had to get the nose in the glass to smell this one. Taste is pretty watery. Watered down biscuity malt with light herbal hops. Light, grassy hop finish that again is watered-down. Metallic note all the way through. I usually like Left Hand, but something feels way off here.
