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.

355 ml. bottle shared with a number of people. I love the cover art on this one, wonderful, makes me think of “The Prisoner”. Very pale, clear orange with little white head. Light citrus notes in the nose, light sweetness and fruitiness, light sweeter yeast, grass, very light fruits and oranges. Taste is sweeter citrus hops, touch of sweeter marmalade, touch toffee, hint white sugar, sweet fruity oranges, caramel. Med, touch malty, tad flatter. Far more enjoyable than suggested by the ratings.

A - Pours a bright clear golden-orange color with a finger of white frothy head. The head fades down to a ring around the glass lacing nicely in the process. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts and citrus and pine hops. Little bit of yeast hanging out in the background. T - Starts off with citrus hop and bitterness and some light sweet caramel malts. Touch of grassy hops in the background. Through the middle, some stronger bitterness and yeast comes through. The finish is a mix of citrus hop and bitterness and some caramel malt sweetness that linger nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels super crisp and smooth. Finish is nice and dry and really pleasant. D - Very drinkable. The flavors are all nice and powerful-enough and the beer is far from empty. The hop profile is pretty nice and the malt balances nicely.

Gold-amber with decent, creamy, white head / Nose of toast and dry hops / Medium body, good balance and lightly bitter finish / Simple flavors of toast and dry hops, with grapefruit notes / Not on a par with the better APA’s.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Clear gold, foamy beige head. Aroma of orange, grass, grain, tropical sweetness. Taste has a mild bitterness with good citrus sweetness and some grain/grass again. Pretty easy to drink. I really enjoyed it considering I drank it after a few hours of fishing in 95 degrees and sweating my ass off.

Nephilium (1325) - Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2011
This starts with a nice floral aroma, with caramel undertones. Pours a clear amber, with a small white head. This is a malt forward beer, with a touch of rye peeking through and a mild finish. Overall, this is a nice easy drinking beer, although I would prefer more of a hop presence.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with a medium sized white head. Soft spicy hops on the nose, a touch of earthy breadiness. Sweeter than expected, but still nice. Thick sweet malt and grain backbone, nice body to it. Medium bodied, gets a touch grainy. Nice earthy hop notes. Gets a nice bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, fairly sessionable.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2012
Tap @ Cardinal. Pours a white head, golden-light amber in color. The aroma is very "standard" for an american pale ale. Citrusy and fresh in the aroma. Generally a smooth drinking pale ale, like most others. All in all a decent ale.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery aroma with light citrus notes and light sweet malts. The flavor has light citric and floral hops, lightly sweet malts, and just a hint of pine. Good stuff.
