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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Aroma of hops and pine. Pours gold with a large white head. Taste is hoppy bitterness with a little malt flavor. Pretty good beer.

Nsanders (427) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Yellow bodied witb white head. Strong floral aroma with cereal malt, like potpourri and chex - not very good. Tastes a lot like it smells, not very good. Lighter body with fine carbonation. Wouldn’t get again.

screigh (423) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Pours a crystal clear macro golden color. No head at all on my pour. Aroma is yeasty and grain. Taste is very sweet and hints of dirt. Tastes almost like a flat soda of some sort. Drain pour.

johnnyoski (415) - 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.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Poured Clear, light straw pour with a huge foamy white head. Aromas of Light, bready malt with a bit of spiciness and light herbal hops. The flavor is grainy malts with some sweetness, leading to a grainy - peppery bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and kind of watery. Not a very good one from Left Hand. There are far more tasty Pale Ales out there.

LomYst (393) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
clear yellow liquid with a light orange glow... lovely fresh hops in aroma (citra? citrus?) both in nose and mouth... balanced bitterness but too watery to stand out

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle pours orange with average white head. Aroma of breaded malts and citrus. Flavors of breaded malts, lemon, and lime with a hint of honey-like sweetness. Dry finish.

natejgood (390) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with relatively large bubbles and a white head. Aroma is a bit malty. Slight aroma of hops and grass. Slightly sweet with a bit of a wheat flavor. Also, tastes a bit lagery. Not my favorite beer.

The aroma does not suck me in. The appearance does not draw me to taste it. What does make me jump in to drink this brew is the experience of something new. What the stranger brings to the table is a flavor that you expect from a pale ale. The draw back here is that the stranger is what I expected from a pale ale. It’s "slightly" above average in my mind compared to the norm. It won’t blow you away. But it is a satisfying ale. I like beverages that set the bar not just meet the standard.
