A: Pours a medium yellow in color with significant amounts of active carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer evenly. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of chilies - specifically jalapeño and light amounts of the pickled jalapeño juice when they come out of the jar/can. There are some light notes of smokey chilies as well but you can tell there will be at least a little heat in this one.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of biscuit and cereal grain malts but that is quickly overtaken by the flavors of the chilies which basically overpower any other flavors from the beer. I can taste jalapeño as well as ancho chilies but I'm sure there are at least a couple of more in there - possibly chipotles. Overall the flavor is warm heat from the chilies but not anything crazy - you know there are chilies and it is spicy but it doesn't burn the mouth (disclaimer: I enjoy hot and spicy foods so this might be a touch hotter for folks not used to them).

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Definitely one of the better chili lagers that I have had - there are better chili beers available but they are almost always much more intensely flavored styles of beer that can more easily support the chilies. I didn't find this one too hot or too intense but not sure that I would want to have more than one of these in a session.

Wow what a beer....I don't think I have ever had a beer that was so interesting. The beer poured a nice clear golden color with white head that laced somewhat. The scent and taste was absolutely....PEPPER!!!! The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall I am not sure I could drink alot of this....but boy o boy its tasty.

Billy's Chilies pours a dark golden color, with no head. There is a fresh chilly pepper aroma. The taste has a strong and fresh chilly pepper taste, and finishes with a kick of spice in the back of your mouth. The only flavors present are those of chilies, and the spice may make it hard to drink, hard to drink even one. Overall a good beer if you enjoy hot chilly peppers.
