At Greenwood, Indiana location... poured an excellent deep red with wonderful head and very nice lacing. Huge deep malt scent with a nice tang in the nose. Wonderfully deep malty scent, with a great tang, and hints of chocolate. Very smooth, rich and deep, with no hint of the relatively high ABV. My favorite at BJ's.

THIS REVIEW IS OF A CASK CONDITION VERSION OF AN OTHERWISE KEGED OFFERING BY BJ'S

My first Real Ale and man what a treat. When this pint got to the table there was a mound of loose sloppy head on it. It was tan and bulbous and full on nooks and crannies. in short, the head looked glorious. The beverage under it was a dark muddled translucent brown. it looked very rich, almost the color of chocolate.

The aroma was great also. It was overflowing with Malt and floural hops and a great smell of yeast and just beer fermentation in general. It gave me the sense that the beverage was alive, inturn making the beers i tried after it seem a little too sanitary and dead.

The taste was great also. It was served at room tempature with no trace of carbonation. It slid comfterably around the tounge and danced on and around the tastebuds. A very excelent brew.

I was fortunate enough to be able to try the keged and cask version side by side, and there was no comparison. I am a big fan of the keged version but this cask pint was one of the best glass's of beer i have ever drank.

Had this beer las night as a part of their 8 beer sampler. Overall, I have to say that the Jeremiah Red was my favourite. It had a deep reddish amber colour, which immediately caught my eye. There was a bit of head but not much lacing. The smell was wonderful with a slightly fruity aroma at first, followed by some malt notes and the slightest bit of hops. The taste was quite bold with rich caramel and toffe malt flavours paired with the slightest bit of hoppiness, which was riminiscent of the aroma. A slight bit of fruitiness but almost no alcohol except for a slight tingling. The alcohol was very well hidden for the reported ABV. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Overall the beer was well balanced and my favourite of the BJ's brews. Definitely getting a pint next time I drop by for a meal.

color is an amber brown light shines this beer up a little but its still opaque.

The smell is kinda weak of barley and dark fruits.

The taste is sweet the barly comes up front. Then you get hit with the alcohol. The fruits come out in the end, but this beer does not trick you by hiding the alcohol.

The drinkablility of this beer is high I really liked it, I would go as far as call it a session beer.

Had this one on tap and then I got a growler to come home with me. It poured with a huge off white head that lasted for a good 5 minutes before it settled into a nice lace. There was not much smell at all comming off this brew other than malt, and once I started drinking I found out why. The beer was allmost all malt with very little hop bitterness and spice but it seemed to work out just fine. Everything mixed together wonderfully and I really enjoyed the taste of this brew. Like I said, I brought a growler home and most of my friends who are not into the stuff I get really liked it...so this may be a good cross-over brew!

Sampled on Cask at BJ's Woodland Hills. (Dry hopped with EKG) Cask was tapped 4 days previously.

As with all almost every offering from the BJ's brewery, Jeremiah Red is larger and bolder than one would expect for style.

This particularly sampling of Red was from the cask with a large dose of East Kent Goldings to pick up the nose. Normally a bright deep ruby color, the cask version of the beer was a hazy brown with virtually no head on the pour. The EKG's were prominent as intense floral notes in the aroma while they lent the palate a lingering grassiness. The beer's flavor is a crystal malt chewy extravaganza cut by a strong tingling sensation of alcohol and american bittering hops.

On tap at BJ's in Corona. Pours a deep red. Small head leaves a nice lace.

Heavy malt profile in the aroma. Dark fruit and caramel.

Fruity malt flavor at first, then opens a little more as it warms. Toast and caramel malt.

Great malty brew. Back in the day it was probably my favorite. I can remember getting a keg of this for my 23rd birthday. Worst hangover ever.
