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.

On tap at BJ's Escondido. Lakers are losing again.

A: Golden orange with a big pillow of white foam that lingers.

S: Blend of bread and caramel with notes of earth. Understated but not unpleasant. Faint apple and pear aromatics.

T: A slight caramel apple flair up front with trailing pear. Biscuit accompanies toasted malt. Malty finish.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid, easy drinking Amber.

On tap at BJ's in Valencia, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some sweet fruity aromas. Taste is very much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but quite similar to Jeremiah Red in my opinion.
