On tap at Country Boy Brewpub in KY.
Hazy, light amber with a small head of limited durability that leaves little lacing.
Light sweet aroma with a touch of funk; does not prepare one for the taste where the habanero addition is obvious. Obvious but not overwhelming or out of balance, and not just heat but some pepper taste too. . The taste of grains still comes through. Light body and light carbonation.

I love this beer. Its the only thing I bring home in a growler anymore. This is Country Boy's blonde ale Cougar Bait, but with jalapenos added to the keg, thus the Nacho part of the name. The guys at Country Boy do some really creative stuff and this is a very good example of that, where they take an already good invention of theirs and put a twist on it.

While this blonde ale innocently courses the palate to start, the deceptive beer finishes with a mischevous capsaicin burn that builds, and builds, and builds indefinately.

Starting with a calm and refreshing pour, the pint looks much like any other blonde ale you've had before. Brightly colored straw hues display light streams of carbonation through a moderate haze. Broken stark-white foam settles on the beer with medium retention and light lace.

Similarly, the aromas start the with grainy-sweet scent of thin honey, malt, and floral notes. But there's something oddly compelling in the backgrop- a ripe fruit scent of chipotle, wood, and peppercorn. Mild hop notes seem to be the catalyst that bridges the common beer scent into the additions of peppery fruit.

The first draw of beer into the mouth seems mild and refreshing. But as the beer crosses the middle palate it turns from it's part malt, part grain balance and into an herbally hopped, vegital taste of peppers. The refreshing taste of blonde piggy-backs onto the habanero flavor as it grows with strong capsaicin heat that suplants hop bitterness for its balance in finish.

The Dr. Jeckle/Mr. Hyde beer continues its schizophrenic nature in mouthfeel. What starts refreshing, light, and highly thirst quenching quickly turns to alcohol and habanero burn to finish. The vicious cycle of the beer scorches the tongue and causes a reaction to drink more... more of the refreshing beer that the beer pretends to be to start. Milk stout anyone?

Perhaps playful, perhaps devilish; the beer has some moxie treading onto my palate with its wolf-like attitude while dressed in sheep's clothing.
