Poured a clear golden color with amber highlights. Smelled of spicy heat. This beer hits you with subtle heat and caramel sweetness. The heat builds at the back of your throat. Nice balance of sweet and heat.

Strong pepper smell and strong pepper taste. Finishes nicely with a vegy and pepper blend. If i didnt know it i would swear i was drinking a salsa.

Hey this a spicy meatball. Lots of different pepper flavors in here-fruity, earthy, green pepper with a fairly high level of heat. It's a very malty lager reminiscent of an amber ale. Low carbonation with a definite heat burn. Nice flavors-good for a pint. It will probably make me pay on the way out.

Has the hot pepper fire and spice and a little vegetal flavor from the chilies. Its a little on the hot side and when you are finished you wonder if you will ever order it again.

This beer pours amber to copper in color

It has a very spicy taste to it.. mutiple peppers and chilis used to create this beer.

It is definately a speciatly beer, had a hard time trying to drink a whole pinty by itself... they said that people typically grab the lighthouse golden ale and go half and half so it drowns out the spicy in the beer

The smell is incredible, very strong pepper smell from the get go
