Sunlight Cream Ale blended, somehow, with roasted hot peppers.

Normally, chile beers start with a much heartier base. Sunlight Cream is an excellent, maddeningly underrated beer (its so-so score here on BA is a testament to just how mindless the hop/sour-adultation has become). But it's not exactly hearty--just crisp, wonderfully thick and smooth.

So if you pour peppers into it (the method of infusion was related to me foggily), those peppers are going to stand out. And, brother, do these standout. It was probably the spiciest pepper beer I've ever had. And also one of the best.

The pepper burn wasn't especially intense. It was maybe the equivalent to biting into a fresh jalapeno--a bit of a jolt if you're not expecting it, but nothing that would give a pepper fan even a moment's pause. Balanced against the cream ale base, however, the peppers have an almost electric feel. They were spicy, but also astoundingly tangy. Like, the tangiest thing I've ever tasted. They made a "tang" noise when they hit my tongue that was like I had just struck a tuning fork against my teeth.

This beer is wonderfully weird. Only along with being weird it's also expertly brewed. You get a sense that this is exactly what they were going for when they plomped all of these ingredients together, and they fucking nailed it.
