A - Slightly hazy copper with 1 finger of off-white head. Average retention with minimal lacing.

S - Soft pale malt with smoked pepper in the background.

T - Soft and sweet grain with some smokiness behind it. You can taste the chili in it for sure. Earthy and mellow. Finishes with a hint of heat on the back of the throat.

M - Medium body with adequate carbonation.

Interesting and pretty good. The heat from the chili is not hot but makes a presence. Nice earthy pale malt to back it up.
