BJís HopStorm IPA
Rated on 4-22-2017 at BJís in Fort Wayne, IN. The appearance of this draft beer is a small cream colored head that is fully lasting throughout my rating, transparent golden body, very little carbonation observed, and a good amount of lacing adorns the glass. The aroma is citrus hops, bitter, grass, and earthy. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, earthy, and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter finish/aftertaste. It is nothing special for the style and it is the best beer of my beer flight.

BJís Pooks Pilsner
Rated on 4-22-2017 at BJís in Fort Wayne, IN. The appearance of this draft beer is a very small off-white head that is mostly diminishing, transparent pale yellow body, very little carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is lightly floral and malt. The flavor is malt and sweet. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Another disappointing beer from this location. The taste is not worth trying and a waste of money.

BJís Oasis Amber
Rated on 4-22-2017 at BJís in Fort Wayne, IN. The appearance of this draft beer is a very small ivory head that is fully lasting, hazy amber body, very little carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is lightly fruity, caramel and malt. The flavor is lightly fruity and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This is a very forgettable yucky tasting beer that has minimal aroma and taste to it. Very disappointing.

BJís HopStorm IPA
This draft brew from a restaurant was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized very off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated body transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The strange flavor contained notes of deep hops. Not one that I would likely drink again.

BJís Pooks Pilsner
This draft brew from a restaurant was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized very white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The off-tasting mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong astringent aftertaste. The horrible flavor contained notes of astringent. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again.

BJís Pooks Pilsner
Aroma: Very lite aroma. No off aromas noted. Appearance: Pretty beer. Clear yellow with no cloudiness. Taste: Mid road pilsner. Not bad for a brewpub brewery. Palate: Lite body with lively carbonation at start, losing all carb in a few minutes. Overall: Good beer with dinner to have with fish, chicken, or pasta.

BJís Pooks Pilsner
Draft at the brewery in Glen Allen, VA The pils poured a clear golden color with a small head and no lacing. The aroma of caramel malts is noted. Could use some more bittering hops. The taste could use some zip! The medium body pils has soft carbonation. The finish was clean with hints of mango and crystal malts.

Finally BJís came out with something new. It isnít the best, as would be expected, but it was strong so Iíll give it some credit.

BJís Harvest Hefeweizen
I have tried many microbrews and Hefeweizen style beers and this one is up there with my favorite, Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. Very similar to Hefewweissibier with the same cloudy golden-yellow wheat beer color and white foamy head. You can smell a light hint of cloves with a refreshing banana-like after taste. Pricey but worth it.

BJís Goliath
Very very good. It did not at all strike me as a barley wine...More of a double IPA with a lot of malt. The hops on the nose were spicy and citrusy, and it was very balanced in terms of acidity, hops, and sweetness. Itís by far the best beer Iíve had at BJs (and Iíve tried most of them).
