This is amber beer is spicy from start to finish. The aroma kicks in with spicy jalapeno right away. The taste has an immediate kick of spicy roasted peppers that linger well into the aftertaste. In case I've been unclear: This one is SPICY! Nearing harshness, but fun regardless. Should pair well with milder foods that need that extra zing.

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with chile beers so I am anxious to try this one.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the peppers with a little bit of corn mixed in. The beer smells a lot like a jar of pickled jalapenos.

The flavor is unfortunately not any better. There is a little bit of corn sweetness, but the overwhelming flavor is hot peppers. The beer is physically hot in the mouth and is hard to drink. After a few sips I had to pour the rest down the drain. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This beer reminded me a lot of the infamous Cave Creek Chili Beer, which is not a good thing.

22oz bottle, champagne flute, shared with brother and dad.

Faux hazed golden rod beer when looking through it at an angle, with good clarity when viewed at eye level. Not much of a head at all and what there is is white.

My family loves peppers and spicy food and this beer delivers a raw Serrano aroma that is shockingly fresh. Very sharp edged, crisp green chile aroma with a light caramel and malt underneath.

Moderately malty sweet body with no hops apparent (bottle states 28 IBU) finishes crisp with that fresh Serrano and Jalapeno. The heat slowly rises as it does with food. This isn't very spicy, but you will know that they used peppers. There is a pleasant warmth in the throat after taking a swallow.

The carbonation is well crafted so as to scurry across the tongue, delivering just the right amount of capsaicin. Thank goodness it's no more.

Drink this with cheese and crackers as an alternative to paring with an IPA. For pepper people or just the adventurous.

Review based on notes, from a few months agoo
Pours an eefervescent caramel with 1 finger of fast falling pearl colored head, ZERO head retrention & lacing

S: Chipotle & caramel notes win the day here, the real srong point of the beer

S: Lemmony notes, the chipolte & smokeyness uo front. Smokey pepper & pears are there as this warms. Finishes with caramel swettness & some peppery heat

MF: Light bodied, subtle carbonation, skewing thin

Drinks okay, not a beer to seek out for a first time pepper beer experience IMO...

Pours a golden straw color with a small creamy head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Nose is all pepper. It's Seerrano, one of my favorite peppers. There's beer in here? If so, you can't discern it from the smell. If you don't like peppers, then I'm not sure why you're drinking this. If you do, then you know what you're in for. Light mouthfeel, if it wasn't for the pepper heat it would be quite refreshing. Taste is somewhat vegetable, there's little hops and some malt but this one is clearly balanced towards the pepper side of the equation. The beer is a huckster, it draws you in with a light fruity hop note and some candy corn sweetness before that's quickly aborted with a blast of Serrano chilis that finishes the whole thing. Interesting as a diversion. Would make a unique counterpoint to something rich and creamy - maybe a clam chowder or something, but it's not necessarily something that you would reach for after a long day.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: The body was a transparent brass color that was full of tiny bubbles. The head and lace were creamy and white.

Smell: The aroma was an herbal, peppery and bread mixture.

Taste: The pepper flavor was great not overdone like other pepper beers I have tried. It almost seemed like there were other vegetable flavors in there as well though. A bit corny and grainy at the end.

Mouthfeel: It is light with allot of bubbles but not allot of bite.

Overall: I would say that I liked this one better than their other pepper beer. It was alright and went well with nachos. I have founded it with two different labels so that can be confusing.

Clear golden colored ale with a tiny white head.

Smells strongly of chile pepper. Slightly smoky but the smell is all pepper.

Starts out dry and a little bitter with some smoke. Lots of pepper flavor and not much else, medium Hot. Nothing much else here just pepper.

Mouthfeel is thin.

Overall just beer with jalapeno in it.

Poured into a shaker pint.

Look: Hazy honey yellow. Light cream head with decent retention. Good lacing.

Aroma: Hot peppers, jalapeños, salsa.

Taste: Liquid salsa with jalapeños coming through. The peppers cut through any beer ingredient.

Mouthfeel: Hot, spicy, burns the throat.

Overall, as advertised. I like it a lot.
