So, I decided to pick this up after trying a homebrewed chile beer a week or so ago and enjoying it. In fact this is a beer I never thought I would try. It poured a pale amber/medium orange color into my pint glass. Smells of sweet sweet malts, and hints of smoky chipotle peppers. Taste is more of the same, a rush of sweet malts, followed by a smoky chipotle pepper taste at the end. Not really spicy, but hints of spicyness. On a 1-10 scale on spicyness i'd rate this a 0.5. Drinkability actually isnt too bad on this, a nice addition for a mexican meal, or equally a decent pre-dinner beer. Quite enjoyable and recommended to all for at the very least a try of something new and different. I probably would have ranked it higher if they had used regular habanero or serrano peppers instead of chipotle peppers. In my opinion it would have been better without the smoke taste but thats just me.
