Bomber bottle w/o freshness info.
Pours lightly clouded lighter almond amber. Moderate and non long lived head, leaves a minor film, very thin collar and minor lace.
I get green pepper on the nose and more chilies and peppers on the palate. Chili pepper level is just about right here, you don't have to search for it and it doesn't blow up your taste buds. As a chili head who enjoys moderate head, this one was about spot on. My non-chili head wife felt about the same....Worth a try, especially if ya like the style

This was my first foray into the "chile" beer realm. Although it didn't blow me away, it was an interesting and enjoyable experience.
Aroma: Mild hop aroma with light malt sweetness, and the added punch of the hot peppers.
Taste: A relatively moderate pale ale with balance of hops and malt, and a moderate level of peppery heat that persists in the back of the throat.
Overall, this was a nice beer and very drinkable considering the style. Based on my understanding of many of the other chile beers, that seems to be a more balanced and approachable version.
Worth a try.

A: The beer is clear yellowish orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving wispy patterns of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of anaheim and jalapeño peppers are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of chili peppers—the anaheims stand out more prominently—and has a light to moderate amount of associated spiciness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The chili peppers make your tongue tingle a little.
O: I found this beer to be quite drinkable for a chili beer—it had lots of pepper aromas and flavors but the spiceness was't that strong. It would pair well with Mexican food, such as tortilla chips and salsa.

Pale yellow in color. Pure white, thin head with a slight lace left behind. The first thing that stands out is the real, true pepper smell - delicious. The first taste is very light and "pilsnery" followed by a very real, excellent pepper flavor - not overpoweringly so and not overly hot. Mouthfeel is, I guess a bit watery, but not off putting. Overall, a really nice chili beer - goes well with pizza. We want to use this for cooking - maybe chicken breasts or sausages!
