The beer pours and oranging gold with a little head of medium sized, white bubbles. The head leaves little to no lacing. In body the beer is slightly hazy, though clean and free of particles, and is full of lazy bubbles working their way to the head. On the nose, the beer smells clean and peppery, like the flesh of a jalapeno fresh out of the garden. Light bready malts also appear lightly in the nose. On the tongue, the beer tastes spicy and softly sweet with light touches of acidity on the sides of the cheeks. In flavor the beer tastes of fresh jalapeno, spicy and fleshy with light vegetal skin notes that are beautiful on the tongue. Light, cracker malt can also be felt as a cream on the sides of the taste, balancing and cooling the spicy flavors. The finish brings the largest touch of bready malt, but the jalapeno flavors return in the aftertaste and give a nice lingering spice to the mouth alongside a slight plastic flavor. In the mouth, the beer feels on the light side of medium in body with a light jelling on the tongue. Carbonation is softer, but bites at the beginning of the sip. After the beer leaves the mouth is left wet with spice and acid canceling saliva. Overall this beer is refreshingly unique, with some awesome pepper flavors that would do amazingly with food. The spicy flavor actually dies off as you drink more of it, which is too bad, but overall this is one of, if not my favorite pepper beer with some great, fleshy, pepper flavors. A beer to try for sure.

Poured from the bottle into a pilsner style glass.
A real brassy yellow, but quite a bit cloudy too, with lots of very good rising pinhead bubbles, reaching towards a big soapy white rocky head. Head manages good solid retention.
Ask and ye shall receive my friends. It's ripping jalapenos! Wonderful pepper notes, toasty seeds, i can smell the garden green flesh just coming off this. The beer doesn't showcase much else, but I am really not complaining, I am just drooling and salivating smelling this. I hope this delivers on taste.
Well, palate is a bit one dimensional. However, it's a good dimension to be in. The beer is full of jalapeno pepper, with a mild acidity that finishes nicely without any burn. Playful classic lager carbonation but not much sense of malt presence here. Lingering peppers finish. Not really much else to say, it buries any sense of hop or malt taste.
Overall though, you can't deny how fun this beer is, and it sells itself as Spicy and with Jalapeno and it delivers in spades. Good times!

Enjoyed on tap at the Thirsty Moose. A good drinkable pilsner for me, with turned up heat. A base of malt and wheat mostly, I got very little hops. A nice one and well needed to break through a taste lull.Little colour or head. Average plus mouthfeel.
