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.

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.

On-tap at BJ's in El Paso.

A: Served an amber color with a small head and a bit of lacing.

S: Aroma is mostly of sweet malt with a hint of nuts mixed in.

T: Has a nice malty sweetness with some fruitiness. Finish has a touch of bitterness.

F: Medium body, quite crisp and smooth. the ABV is well hidden. Not overpowering, quite enjoyable.

D: a good drinker, good for a few. Seems to fill the style quite well.

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.
