Jeremiah Red AleJeremiah Red Ale
Notes: A Silver Medal winner in Strong Ales at the 1996 Great American Beer Festival. This Irish-style strong ale is brewed with a secret blend of five imported specialty malts. Not too hoppy in order to emphasize the complex malt flavor and fruity aroma.

Traditional optics. Pretty straightforward red / amber, perhaps a little too boozey / phenolic, but otherwise fine, just some bready malts & alcohol..

Just a stronger version of Killians, this will always be my base for amber brews. This is a good one and a refreshing one, I will be enjoying future six packs of this beer!

Wow, I usually like Reds and maltier beers in general, but this thing was sickeningly sweet. I got it on tap from the restaurant and could barely finish it. Felt like drinking a bottle of maple syrup. Not my style I suppose!

The best beer I have ever tried. Being a fan of wheat ales, this one turned me towards reds, and it doesn't look like short term.

Too boozy, bitter but not on a hop type, great taste at the beginning. Finishes poorly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
