BJís PM Porter
On draft at BJís in West Covina. The pour is a medium black with a thick light khaki head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty bland. There is a light roast and a hint of chocolate, but thatís is. No sweetness, no depth. The flavor is thin and light with more of a metallic malt dominating. There isnít much happening. Light malts, a hint of chocolate, and a heap of metallic grain thing happening that doesnít do anyone any favors. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a light carbonation and a real lack of flavors on the back end. The aftertaste is metallic and forced chocolate malts. Interesting, but not a full time beer

BJís Tatonka Stout
On nitro at BJís in Covina. Thanks work. The pour is a typical nitro pour but as it recedes it gets light and more of a ruby tinted dark brown. Thick khaki colored head and good lace. The aroma is heavy on the malt. There is a light sweetness to it and a bit of metallic to take it out. There is a decent amount of alcohol here. The flavor is not that great. There is a bright alcohol up front l followed by a bitter roast and a lingeringly sweet chocolate malt. Itís definitely not really what I was hoping for. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a light carbonation and a lingeringly metallic chocolate aftertaste. This could be a lot better.

BJís / Green Flash Hop Pact IPA
Draft at BJís in Short Pump The IPA poured a clear amber color with a small off white head and modest lacing. The aroma of floral hops and citrus was noted. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Nice ale with well balanced hop bitterness. There was bitterness in the back of the mouth. The IPA finished cleanly.

BJís / Green Flash Hop Pact IPA
Clear, tinged gold. Big, sticky ivory head. Twangy, somewhat savory, slightly citrus aroma, lightly sweet. Edgy, a little chemical, moderately astringent, caraway notes all round. A bit chemical for my taste. On tap, BJs, Tallahassee.

BJís Jeremiah Red
Beautiful white flesh head, slight taste of shanty underpants, appears long and thick with girth, the aroma was that of baked fromunda cheese, the palate was unbelievably smooth yet ridged, overall, orgasmic.

BJís / Green Flash Hop Pact IPA
Draft at BJís Willowbrook Houston. Pours a little murky and pale yellow. Not much aroma as the beer was very cold. Flavors are slightly floral with a sticky rye backbone. Iím not much on rye beers but this was decent.

BJís / Green Flash Hop Pact IPA
Draft at source. Pours a partly cloudy more orange than yellow smallish shite head. Aroma is sweet fruit some spice and fruit. The flavor is a lot fruity almost cloying sweet underneath the spice from the rye comes out. Trying to scrape my tongue this is not very good to much fruity whatever in this

BJís / Green Flash Hop Pact IPA
Shaker pint draft at BJís Restaurant & Brewhouse in Dallas, Texas (Addison). The pour is clear golden with a smaller dirty white head. The aroma is fruity citrus hops and with grainy toast malt. Taste is a blend of the sweet fruit hops, the grain malt and a bit of spice from the Rye, though that was very mild and probably could have missed it had I not known it was there. The palate is medium to light bodied with active fine carbonation and a slightly muddled yeast and slight bitter hop finish. Just OK.

BJís Whiskey Barrel Stout - Bourbon Tatonka
A very nice bourbons n beer but it is very simplified, but, this honestly is a terrible looking beer. Looks like crappy root beer.. . Mild to medium bourbon, burnt brick, wooden teeth, and sweet tar .. Itís a nice beer, wonít win awards or stop me from punching children but itís nice

BJís Whiskey Barrel Stout - Bourbon Tatonka
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a deep brown color with a small khaki head. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, oak, dark dried fruits, ash, earth, roasted malts - whiskey throughout. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky, boozy, roasty mouthfeel. Not the most elegant barrel treatment, but given how weak the base beer is, itís not bad.

BJís Magnoliaís Peach
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head that settles into a film and ring while lacing the glass. Notes of peach, cereal, hay, wheat - not much to it. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, sweet mouthfeel. No better or worse than the other stuff here.

BJís Holidaze Harvest Pumpkin Ale
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small off-white head that leaves ropes of lace in the glass and an uneven film atop the liquid. Drinks like a sweet-leaning pumpkin pie; notes of nutmeg, light cinnamon, allspice, graham cracker, vanilla, and caramel. Subtle earthiness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, spicy mouthfeel. Pumpkin ale on in May? Why the fuck not?

BJís Berry Burst Cider
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a sparkling pink color with plenty of carbonation bubbles. Lots of berry fruit, with tart apple, lemon, and sugar - like a berry-flavored Sprite. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a clean, crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Sure, thereís nothing natural-seeming or particularly artful about it, but it was better than all the boring sub-par other stuff on tap.

BJís Tatonka Stout
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Nitro. Pours a cloudy brown color with a cascading beige head. Light in color for the style. A soft, frothy cap of head lasts. Notes of nuts, chocolate, soap, chocolate milk powder, and residual sugars. Medium-bodied, with medium soft carbonation and a gritty, sweet, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Tastes like a first attempt at an imperial stout with a homebrew extract kit. Odd.

BJís Nutty Brewnette
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a lasting off-white cap for a head that also laces the glass. Itís like a toastier amber, so itís a lot like Oasis or Jeremiah. Sweet and toasty malts, caramel, sugars, and some general earthy and metallic notes. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, nutty mouthfeel. Below average example of the style.

BJís Jeremiah Red
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head that settles into an island of film, ring around the glass, and some lace. Itís like the Oasis, but with a bigger malt character - caramel and sweet malts, leaves, grass, sugars, and a hint of metallic notes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, earthy mouthfeel. Again, like the Oasis, bland and forgettable.

BJís Oasis Amber
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a clear orange gold with a small off-white cap for a head. Good lace in the glass. Notes of leaves, caramel, grass, residual sugars, and some metal. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a fairly clean and bland mouthfeel despite the last two notes I mentioned. Dull and forgettable.

On tap at BJís in Lexington. Appearance was reddish yellow with very light head. Aroma was mostly malt (barley?). Terrible after taste and flat uninteresting palate. Extremely disappointing.

BJís Root of Evil Ginger IPA
Draft at BJís Cincinnati/Springdale location on June 23, 2016. Medium to dark amber/orange hue, interesting herbal/citrus/hop aroma, bittersweet flavor with the ginger and lemongrass upfront and the hops in the finish. Tasty if a bit odd, and not enough hop assertiveness to call this an IPA--drinks more like an APA.

Far less aggressive in the ginger than the Stone ginger IPA. And as such is slightly more enjoyable. Overall this is a trend Iím already done with.

In small portions or with dessert this would work quite well. Tons of chocolate and definitely sweet, drinkable in small bits.

Certainly has a nice peach aroma. Thin but fruity, this is okay. Certainly a beer for the non-beer drinking ladies.
