On tap at the brewery into a shaker pint glass.

A-The beer is light golden in color and hazy. A cap of white foam has decent staying power, but eventually fades to a collar. No lacing. I can see a few lazy bubbles in the brew. Sort-of boring looking.

S-The aroma is that of a simple ale with some vegetal chili flavors. It is lightly sweet with corn and honey scents, as well as fleshy (rather than spicy) green chili aroma. The spice is mild and more of a tickle than outright heat.

T-The taste is similar: A pretty simple beer with some grain and corn flavors, a bit of honey-like sweetness and a fair amount of fleshy chili pepper flavors. The pepper spice comes through, but this is not a "hot" beer like some light chili beers.

F-The body is pretty light and clean. Easy to drink with moderate levels of carbonation.

O-I have good memories of drinking Patty's beer in college, but the memories are better than the beer. Anyway, this is an easy drinking ale with a healthy hit of chili flavor and not much more. If you are looking for complexity or intensity, look elsewhere.

You really have to be prepared for this one. It's pretty spicy, and as such, it goes great with Mexican food. But it's really a sipper, and it's tough for me to put down a whole pint just because of the strong pepper flavor. People either love this beer or hate it as a result. Since I'm not a big hot and spicy guy, I'd pass on ordering it straight up, but it's actually great in a sampler.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden yellow with a medium frothy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is fresh chile peppers (Anaheim?).

The flavor is some sweet malts with chile flavor. It's got a little heat but is pretty mild. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid mild chile beer. Good flavor, but not a lot of heat.
