This my first beer from the Wynkoop Brewery, had a very nice chili taste to it. To me it was like have the best Nachos and cheese with all the fixins you love in a bottle, also wood make a great contribution to Nacho's and Cheese. Not to spicy has I've had from other chile beers but very balanced taste.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Poured a clear brassy color with a small white head. Smell was not too strong, but had faint aromas of grains and chili peppers. Taste... This...beer...tasted...like....TACOS. I expected a little bit of a spicy twinge like with most other chili beers I've had, but this wasn't really spicy at all. Just TASTED LIKE TACOS. Really amazing actually. An easy, pale malt base, but when settled on the palate, I could taste the corn of the tortillas, vegetables, and chili peppers, sans the burn. I don't mind the burn, but this was definitely a nice change of pace. Light-medium body and very smooth, this was an extremely drinkable beer, and went great with the food.

n draught at the brewpub, Patty's Chili Beer is a clear gold with a wispy white skim leaving scattered lace.

Smell is moderately strong, smoked anchos.

Taste is heavy on the raw vegetable flavor of green chilis, which is a pleasant surprise, with very little smoke or heat.

Mouthfeel is light and slick.

Drinkability is good, very unusual. If you like the taste of green chili's, you'll like it, but don't come for strong smoke or heat. Very unique for the style.

This beer had a nice orange murky color with a decent head and retnetion.

Taste and smell are simple: pepperjack. Nice and spicy, leaves a little spice on the throat.

There is moderate carbonation and decent clinging to the palate.

This beer is not bad and I could have a few of these. I love chili beers. There is not a lot going on here, but it is pretty drinkable.

Poured a nice golden color with great head and some nice lacing, as well as a nice amount of carbonation, nearly lager like in its appearance. Nice sweet beer, good balance between malt and hop, with a great chile flavor, enough to enjoy but not so much it takes away from everything else. It goes down nice, if just a bit too much carbonation.

A - Small head and pretty light color almost yellow.

S - The smell of peppers in a beer is so odd but makes you want to keep sniffing

T - Peppers dominate the taste but not spicy peppers, more like a green or red pepper. almost refreshing.

Pretty good beer for how different it is.

Sampled on tap at the Wynkoop brewpub.

This chile beer poured a clear, amber color with white foam that settled but clung to the glass somewhat. The smell was a sharp, green chile-like aroma backed by some maltiness. The taste was dominated by green chiles, though not overly hot/spicy, but more of a woody or earthy flavor. There was a good bready maltiness in the background and a very mild sweetness, and very modest hoppiness. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and peppery with medium body and moderate carbonation. The malt and chile flavor lingered. This was a good example of this style. I enjoyed it, but I don't think I would drink more than one in a row.

one of the few chili beers i really actually like to drink a pint of from time to time. pours a pale ale looking straw color with an average white head. smells like a ton of roasted chilies, like the farmers market in late summer. smokey and spicey. flavor has no heat at all though, just the essence of anaheim and serrano peppers. there is a good light malty body to support all the pepper flavor, and a complimentary late hop burst that kind of cools the thing off a bit. goes great with the calamari at wynkoop, and will definitely surprise you if you think chili beers arent your thing. this one is famous for a reason.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, gold, high carbonation, clear

Smell: small amount of pepper, and grass/wheat

Taste: grassy wheat start followed by a big pepper bite that goes to a mix of malt and pepper

Mouthfeel: medium high carbonation, moderately smooth, sweetish start followed by a peppery body

Drinkability: A very good pepper beer that is probably in my top five for the style. the bite is good and is not overpowering. The beer taste is there. I have sessioned this before at the bar.

An amber beer tinged with a it of green, fairly clean looking. Clumpy head, but it didn't stick very well to the sides. Kinda syrup looking.
Good spice in the nose. Pepper and anaheim chile, a bit mild, but still crisp and chile-ish.
Flavor: dominated by the anaheim chile taste. A bit sweet in the middle, finish hot a nice chile burn to it. Great with a burger, I thought. One is enough for me, though.

Interestingly enough, this may have been my favorite sampling at the brewery during my GABF '08 visit. The beer begins with a fairly average Blonde Ale base that shows soft pilsner maltiness / sweetness, and a mild ester profile. The peppers are the mild Aneheim ones that deliver a crisp vegitable-chile taste that blends well with the grains. The heat is mild, giving balance to the malts in the absence of noticible hops. Light in the body, which makes the beer very drinkable. Finishes with a chili taste and moderate warming. Quite nice.
