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 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.

Boozy red that hits the malts right and looks good. A bit too boozy though to be balanced or have a good mouth feel. One of the better on tap options from BJ's.

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.

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.

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.

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.
