Pistola, which is Pistol Whip'd brewed with chilies.
What a tantalizing spicy beer. A vibrant golden lager with busily rising bubbles. The spicy notes of serrano chilies integrates seamlessly with this Czech pilsner. Taste of jalapeños is balanced, not overpowers the crips & refreshing pilsner taste. Yet the spiciness comes through, delicious.
Very well done of a spicy beer. Extremely drinkable & a must try for people who love spicy taste.

On tap at the Noble Ale Works 3rd Anniversary Party held at Noble Ale Works in Anaheim, CA.

Billed as Pistola Grande at the event.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, chile pepper, and chile pepper juice aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and pepper flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of chile heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid chile presence with the base beer.
