A - Amber body, low head.

S - Tabasco sauce, mild malts, no hops to speak of.

T - Tastes like a really neutral Amber with peppers added. I didn't hate it but it was not what I was expecting. Although idk what I was expecting from a beer n the "Chile Beer" category.

M/D - Middle of the road mouthfeel, I was able to finish my half of the bomber no problem but my tasting partner didn't do much damage and I've never seen him not finish a beer before.

Dirty light /red/orange in color. Little head. No lacing.

If I inhale really deep I can smell a hint of pepper. Other than that not much to speak of. Sort of smooth on the mouth. Goes down easy.

A cool concept for beer, but it just didn't really taste much like peppers or have any kick to it at all.
