Beer added by: UncleJimbo on 10-11-2004

A Silver Medal winner in Strong Ales at the 1996 Great American Beer Festival. This Irish-style strong ale is brewed with a secret blend of five imported specialty malts. Not too hoppy in order to emphasize the complex malt flavor and fruity aroma.

As one would expect a sangrineous color, the head portly and the consistency spumescent, tan in color and the residual lace a nice sealing sheet. Nose is sweetly malt, fresh and clean with a malt-laden start, top middling in its feel. Finnish is mildly acidic, the hops apropos to the style, dry lingering aftertaste. (317 characters)

On tap in Plano, Texas.

The beer pours a reddish color with a small tan head. The aroma is full of toffee with a little bit of caramel mixed in. The flavor is more of the same, with some strong toffee and caramel notes and a little bit of grass and earth from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not great, but one of the better year-round beers from BJ's. (372 characters)

This is the one BJ's pimps as their award-winner. Pours a bright copper with a medium white head. Malty, fruity aroma as advertised, with some caramel. Sharp taste with earthy hops. Decent malt backbone. Bitter, but not in a really good way. They have better beers than this on tap. (282 characters)

Boozy red that hits the malts right and looks good. A bit too boozy though to be balanced or have a good mouth feel. (116 characters)

On-tap at Chandler location. This is occasionally put on the weekly cask offering. Lots of malt. Reddish highlights, white creamy head, lace. Mild malta roma. Above avrage mouthfeel from the malts, a touch of sour and a touch like an old ale. Too much carbonation to drink pints of it, still enough malt complexity to make it interesting. (338 characters)

On tap at the Rancho Cucamonga, CA location. A sort of imperial red ale. Pours red, head is off white, foamy, not too durable. The smell is subdued, but it is malty. The taste very malty. Hops don't contribute much to this beer. Starts with semi-sweet malt, and then finishes spicy. There may be some very faint smokiness thrown in there too. It's mainly a malty high alcohol soup. The alcohol is definitely detectable, probably giving off the spiciness, and creates a really viscous mouthfeel. I wouldn't drink this beer again. It's not really my style. (554 characters)

Had at the La Jolla, CA location in a pint glass. Pours a deep copper amber color and served with a nice half inch of off white head. Retention and lacing were moderate.

Smell is predominantly malty. Slightly sweet notes, some caramel/chocolate and a touch of citrus. Hops barely present.

Malt flavors continue in the taste yet offer decent complexity. Spice and chocolate linger. Mouthfeel is good and finish is smooth. Somewhat sweet but not overly so for a Red Ale, and a light bitterness enhances. Notably less bitter than many of the style, and that works for me.

Smooth and easy to drink, but the sweetness and the alcohol put a limit on that factor. (660 characters)

Consumed in the Canoga Park BJs.

Appearance- Poured a nice amber/red with a light orange head. The head looked almost like orange sherbert. Very good head retention, and good lacing.

Aroma- Mostly malt sweetness, and a citrusy hoppy aroma. The hops were kind of disappointing.

Taste- The beer has a decent balance of citrusy hoppiness and malt sweetness. I wish it had more hops tho..

Mouthfeel- Thin-medium body. Good carbonation level.

Drinkability- I tend to prefer more flavoring and aroma hops in my red ales, but I'm a major hop-head. (556 characters)

Mostly clear light red/dark copper color with a fluffy cream colored head. Excellent lacing and retention...a nice looking beer.

Sweeter-than-caramel malt nose, a bit of chocolate malts and perhaps some crystal as well. Candy-like sweetness is a bit odd, but not necessarily off-putting.

Smooth earthy and peat flavors are dominating in this brew along with sweet and toasty malts. Has a mild hop bite on the finish. Candy-esque sweetness is a bit annoying and the alcohol feel is a bit raw, but a decently enjoyable beer that I would not mind drinking again one of these days. (579 characters)

Poured a ruby brown in color with no head. Smell is all malt and a little off. Taste is much the same. Not sure what the flavor is, but it strikes me as a bit stale. Like cheap malts were used in the production of this beer. This strikes me as rather close to your basic BMC. Not much going on here. Smooth, but tough to finish. Not very enjoyable, I'll move on. (362 characters)

I need to remember to try this oen again.

I received this beer with a decent amount of head and some good retention.

Nice toasty malts on the nose remind me of a typical red. I don't pick up on a lot of hops, but I do smell some hops. It seems that this won't be a hop head red.

The toasted malts dominate the palate and are balanced by a balancing citrusy hop bitterness. This won an Award as a strong ale. It didn't seem that strong to me. I guess the ABV makes it a strong ale, but the malts weren't super aggressive and this wasn't very hoppy.

There is a crispness to the mouthfeel, but it isn't very full and doesn't seem to do much for the back of my palate.

I would order this again at BJ's. Not bad at all. (720 characters)
