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 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 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.

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.

Mostly clear light red/dark copper color with a fluffy cream colored head. Excellent lacing and retention...a nice looking beer.

Sweeter-than-caramel malt nose, a bit of chocolate malts and perhaps some crystal as well. Candy-like sweetness is a bit odd, but not necessarily off-putting.

Smooth earthy and peat flavors are dominating in this brew along with sweet and toasty malts. Has a mild hop bite on the finish. Candy-esque sweetness is a bit annoying and the alcohol feel is a bit raw, but a decently enjoyable beer that I would not mind drinking again one of these days.

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.

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.
