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. Its strangely satisfying.

Weak pale ale, too light and too bitter for what it wants to be, not very pleasant at all. The nose is flat and grainy, meaning the hops sneak up on you as you sip the pint. Thin texture mingles with an assertive, medicinal bitterness; you wait in vain for the malt sweetness to balance the dry finish, but its watery pine all the way down. Much better pale ales to be found on the shelves.

Hmm...not much to say here: Its a decent pale ale--nice spicy and almost astringent note to it. Very sessionable, not exceptional; typifies what Left Hand is all about.

Malt and citrus aroma. Golden with thin white head. Mild carbonation. Citrus, mild lemon and sweet malt flavor. Decent balance, dry, medium bitter finish.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Drank in a shaker. Poured a light copper with a small head. The aroma was very subdued. Good balanced taste but the end was a little off somehow.

Bottle. Golden pour with a thin white head. Mild hops, malts and a hit of spice in the aroma and taste. Decent APA, not a world-beater, but still a nice brew.

Orange copper with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, hop flowers, and light citrus. Flavor is sweet at first, then goes to slighlty bitter and metallic, Some hops on the finish. Light body and sharp carbonation.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Hazy yellow color with thin white lacing. Aroma has mild citur peel feel with a slight muskiness to it. Palate isnice for a pale ale. Nothing spectacular but a fine drinking beer.

Another great ale from Left Hand. Hoppy aroma, little bit spicy an the aftertaste. Lets drink it, not discuss :)

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Light golden pour with very little head. Smells like a light pale ale. Not much going on. Palate is pretty light bodied with just enough weight to not piss me off. The taste has some bitterness but is fairly lightly hopped. Mellow sweet malts. LIghtish APA that is pretty drinkable I had 2 at the bar.
