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.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold body, small white head. Starchy grain husks and sulfuric yeast off-notes in the nose with vegetal hops and faint touches of DMS / cooked corn / cabbage and cement mix. There’s some strange fruitiness hidden beneath all of this, coming across something like spoiled / fermenting fruit cocktail. Light body with rough grain texture, medium carbonation. I could see this being acceptable without the brewing flaws, though it would be dull and plain. With the flaws, it goes from mediocre to foul.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
Half pint, tap at BrewDog, Leeds. Clear, copper-gold body, dissipating white head, good amount of lacing down the glass. Modest aroma of resin, farmyard and malty sweetness. Sweaty hops and lemon to the taste buds added by a touch of earthy malts. Fresh and smooth fruity ending, semi-dry. Standard pale ale, more or less (30.06.2013).

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2011
12 oz bottle from Capone’s. Pours dark straw with 1-finger eggshell head that has good retention. Nose is pale malt, spicy hops. Tastes pale malty, hoppy, floral, with a medium palate heft and a bitter finish. The finish is a bit cloying and astringent.

gnoff (7663) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2011
Draught at Bishops Arms Avenyn, Göteborg, on September 5, 2011
Golden color, white head. Fruity, hoppy, a bit subtle taste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Malty and hoppy scent.
Not very exiting, but fresh and nice. Could do with a little less co2.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Benzai (7218) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle @ home, bought at De Bierkoning, shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy almost pale orange color, medium sized white head that disappears fully within a couple of seconds. Aroma of malts, some hops, a bit oxidised so I guess it’s a bit old. Taste malts, lightly hops, lightly bitter. Nothing fruity really, and again a bit old. Or maybe it has been in the store in the light for too long. So all things considered: I think it’s a decent APA when it’s fresh, but now it’s not that good. Too bad.

Meilby (7189) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle 355ml @ Hotel Room, Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, rye, pine and floral. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long spicy and floral finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a short, sticky white head. The aroma picked up sticky pale maltage and grains with mostly vegetal notes accenting.. not all that good. The flavor found semi-sweet honey and crusty bread at the core.. some piney bitterness and more vegetal notes around.. finished sticky-sweet with moderate bitterness. Light-medium bodied with an OK feel and flow.. drinkable, but not that good.

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2012
From the cask. Really unnecessary for a brewery to be producing another pale ale. I will say this: on cask it is a pleasant and drinkable beer.
