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.

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.

This beer is an interesting concept, at least I am intrigued by the description. Take an uninteresting Irish Red and double the recipe to give it some character. This beer sits a full red color in my glass and is topped by a pale tan color head that is pretty long lasting. The aroma is malt dominated with notes of caramel, a fruitiness that reminds me of cherries, and some toasted malt notes. The beer tastes sweet and malty with lots of fruity notes as well. I get notes of strawberry, cherry, caramel, and biscuits with a nice honey glaze. There is a bit of bitterness in the finish, which seems to make a feeble attempt at holding the yeasty fruitiness and solid malt notes in check (this is certainly not a bad thing either). I am really struck by how fruity this beer is, there is also a palate coating fullness to it that slowly melts to an herbal hoppy bitterness in the finish. Quite nice, really lives up to the verbal description.

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.

Sample at the Columbus location. This brew is a reddish-brown color with a medium beige head that lasts pretty well. Patchy lacing. Sweet malt and nuts in the nose. Medium-bodied with a sweet malt character throughout, along with light roasted nut and hops flavors. The finish is hoppy and nutty. Overall this is not too bad.

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.

Sampled on tap at the Las Vegas (Summerlin) location, but brewed in Chandler, Arizona.

This "Irish style strong ale" poured a dark, red-amber color with creamy, tan foam that settled. The smell was mild: malty with a hint of alcohol and a touch of cocoa. The taste was malty with notes of caramel malt and a very light sweetness. The hops were mild. A note of alcohol could be detected. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with med-full body and moderate carbonation. There was a slight bitterness in the finish, and overall this beer was warming. This was a pretty good red ale.

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.

Red highlights with a brown body served with a creamy beige head of about a quarter inch. Streaming bubbles keep it that way. The nose is a bit light, but biscuity sweet malt, lightly toasted. The flavor is again highly malty, with slight notes of toffee along with the toast. Lightly sour and puckering, minimal hops. Highly carbonated, but decently fun.

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.

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.

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.

Actually in La Mesa, but Chandler seemed to have the most beer ratings, so I went with that.

Poured from a draft into a pint glass at BJ’s Restaurant in La Mesa, Calif. Color was reddish copper, almost mahogany. Probably about an inch of head. Reddish brown lacing that stayed on the top throughout. Also lots of film that lasted on the sides.

A bit disappointed with the smell. It took awhile to find anything, and once I did it was a pretty average copper malt.

Tasted of toffee and fruity malts. The toffee and caramel dominated the front, while the fruit (cherry/plum) came in late.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Butter finish.

I liked this beer, probably more than the Piranha Pale Ale. Smooth and balance led the way.
