On-tap at BJ'S in Orange, on to the beer:

This amber orangish colored beer features a fuzzy head which drops to a lace, and a few sprinkles of lace. Smelling slightly nutty with esters, somewhat dull in overall intensity, the taste of Oasis is a sweet and malty forward beer that leans towards the Fauxtoberfest style of amber beer. A slight citrus note pops from the sweet, bready, and caramel notes. It's light bodied, easy to quaff, and thus makes a good lunchtime beer.

At first glance this appears to be comparable to BJ's other red ale this falls short of the mark on flavor. It has a great appearance and smell but just doesn't have that nice Amber flavor for my taste. This reminds me of a very watered down Red Hook Amber Ale.

Just before Christmas with brother. First pick of the night at BJ's Brewhouse. Good choice for me. I'm beginning to think American Reds and Irish Reds are my staple beer.
