Had at BJ's Daytona as part of a flight.

Sight - amber leading to red, almost no head at all.
Smell - sugary sweet, like syrup
Taste - toffee, caramel, general sweet syrup, too much sweet going on.
Sweet - 3.5/5
Bitter - 1/5

This beer really needed a hoppy bite to balance out the sickly sweetness. My wife ordered a pint of this but couldn't finish it because it was so sweet. Completely out of whack.

After you have some real good ales, this one is just plain ok. Nothing to get excited about, just ok. My last glass of this tasted slightly sweet, a little malty and metallic. It also had a metallic smell as well. I would stick to the guest beers that are on tap instead of the house brews. They do have a very fine selection of bottles as well.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I previously reviewed the same beer, from the same location (BJs in Henderson NV), but on-tap and in person at the bar. THAT beer was much much better.
This time I took the growler home and tasted it later. Way different. And not the same.
Average in every way. Much sweeter and maltier. Also could be that because the on-tap and growler were tasted on different days, there could have been a difference in the batch characteristics. Regardless of reasons, the growler was very sweet. Too sweet. Not as bitter, not at all like what I have come to expect from ordering this beer on location. I will stick to having in in person from now on and will try a growler of something different.

Sampled this on 4/23/08. This is a pretty good beer. Reddish-amber color topped with a thin off-white head and some spotty lacing. Roasted malty flavor with some caramel in there. It seemed slightly off balanced with a finish that was a bit stale but overall it was solid and I liked it.

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.

Clear Orangish red pour. Smell is sweet and malty with hints of apple juice. Taste is similar with sweet apple like malt flavors, and a touch of balancing hops. Still thin overall, but not excessively so. Very friendly, drinkable, and the alcohol was hidden well. Nice beer, and one of my favorites here.

It really doesn't taste like a red ale (not particularly hoppy), but this is probably my favorite of the BJ beer offerings. Big copper/orangeish pour with a white foamy head. Smells malty ... and tastes ... malty. Some hop overtones, but certainly nothing overwhelming. Somewhat complex taste and mouthfeel. Goes well with buffalo wings.
