Light clear amber pour with a small head. Taste is mildly hopped, a bit thin overall in the body and flavor, and a decent bitterness in the finish. Overall, nice and unoffensive and very drinkable, but not full bodied and flavored enough.

4-5 oz pour on draft at BJís (Gainesville, VA location) with a Mustang Sally yelling DCLawyer. Murky brownish orange with off-white head. Aromas of toasty notes, biscuit, light citrus. Tastes of citrus, toasty notes, biscuit, floral notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Pittsburgh location this beer poured a bright orange color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that left excellent lacing. The aroma was faint but sweetish with vague fruits. The flavor was tangy, sweet and vaguely fruity with hints of pine and cracker. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

kramer (5689) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear copper body with a one finger frothy off-white head. The nose is a nice mix of citrus and caramel maltiness. Flavor wise, itís a bit on the sweeter side, with just a slight hint of a chemical like note once the hops fade on the finish. In fact, the more I have, the more the finish bothers me. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slight cling on the back end. This one tasted decent at first, but the finish got to me.

Leckeres Helles Ale. Eigentlich eher unauffällig und leicht langweilig, man merkt aber die Berufung des Braumeisters. Kann man trinken, muss man aber nicht. BJ's hat auch ein tolles IPA, lieber mal das probieren! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BJís Piranha Pale Ale is a pretty solid pale. Amber pour is a moderate hop aroma. Taste is fairly complex but not real bitter -- nice floral notes. Piranha is an enjoyable pale.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Draft in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a clear bright gold with a white head that laces the glass and settles into a film and ring. Notes of pineapple, lemon, grass, straw, pale and bready malts, florals, and melon. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, juicy, moderately bitter mouthfeel. Surprisingly good pale ale, and considerably better than the IPA.

Chudwick (2682) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Taster in Florence - nose is resin. Sip adds more resin. Malty backbone and fairly bitter. Decent and inoffensive.

BlackHaddock (5637) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
21st May 2015: BJís Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Light golden pour with a full white crown of foam on top. Hop front with a malty backbone, I thought the blend of flavours married together well: mild fruitiness and mini citrus feel to the taste. This was the first beer I tried of the eight and a good, basic start to my tasting session. Not too sure where the "For hopheads only!" comes from?
