2.84/5 rDev -18.2%
4.4%. Served on-draught into a 5 oz taster glass at Wynkoop. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours no real head at all - just a beige floater. Body colour is a clear copper-amber. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Light chili peppers. Clean barley. Little heat. Seems harmless. A mild strength aroma.
T: Some chili notes. No heat or spice. The foundation is comprised of just simple clean barley. Simple and somewhat bland, but pleasant to drink. No complexity or subtlety here. Kind of boring. No yeast character or alcohol comes through.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Adequately carbonated. Suits the flavour profile fairly well. Too smooth and wet.
Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. I might have it again if I'm in the mood for a chili beer. A decent little brew from Wynkoop, albeit a mild one for the style.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

An excellent beer that (like others have mentioned) seems to vary a little. Sometimes the beer is spicier or stronger than other times, but I suppose that just boils down the the chilis being used.
The color is golden, but more vibrant than most domestic lagers or ales.
The smell is amazing. It's like taking a whiff of fresh roasted chilis. If you like the smell of chili peppers, this is heaven. If you don't like them...well, you likely won't enjoy this either. There's a slight malt edge to it, but not much. The strength of the aroma varies by the batch, but the actual smell is always the same.
Taste is shockingly mild. It's just like a light ale, but with a little chili bite at the end. It's not spicy most of the time, but I did have a pint that had a tiny bit of kick to it a few months ago.
In your mouth it's very light. Not too much carbonation, not too "thick"
The beer is a great starter and is VERY unique, but I don't think I could drink more than 1 or 2 in an evening. The more you drink of it, the milder the flavor will get. By the end of a pint, you're a little numb to the chili smell and flavor.
If you live in the area or stop into the Wynkoop while in Denver, this beer is a must-try just for it's uniqueness.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
Ordered one of these at Wynkoop as it was on Westword's 50 Colorado Beers to Try Before you Die List.
A - The beer arrived a vivid golden color with a thin white head and noticeable lacing.
S - Imagine you're at a Farmer's Market right next to the guy roasting the chili's. Immense chili aroma that's so potent you can't get anything else through.
T/M - The beer starts out light and crisp with a light malty character but quickly transitions to the chili flavor. It's not a spicy jalapenos flavor more of a roasted chili. The beer finishes crisp and smooth with the chili flavor lingering. It is not overly carbonated and is surprisingly light.
D - I was very excited about the beer at the beginning of the pint, towards the end I was ready for it to go away.
Overall, I am glad to have tried it as it's one of only a handful of chili beers I've had. However, I won't be going back for another.
Serving type: on-tap
