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.

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.

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
