Pours a slightly opaque, fiery pepper orange. The white head is quick to appear and disappear, leaving behind no lace. Smells of Serrano and jalapeno peppers. The taste starts subtle with little hints of pepper and ale, before building into a bit of a serrano/jalapeno pepper heat roar. Certainly not the spiciest beer, but if you find Tabasco sauce hot, be careful. The feel is rather dull, with a slight watery finish. Overall, it's certainly an interesting beer. Especially for those who find a thrill in eating and/or drinking spicy food/drinks (as I do).

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Clear golden colored ale with a tiny white head.

Smells strongly of chile pepper. Slightly smoky but the smell is all pepper.

Starts out dry and a little bitter with some smoke. Lots of pepper flavor and not much else, medium Hot. Nothing much else here just pepper.

Mouthfeel is thin.

Overall just beer with jalapeno in it.

Sampling right now on 10/29/14. Comes in a 12 ounce can and contains right at 5% alcohol (wasn't listed on the label so I called them directly about a hour ago). Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy orange-amber in color with about a 1-finger white foamy head. A good amount of lacing is seen when sipped, in rings actually, that sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma is of course peppers and grains. Pretty much the taste follows the nose with a bite of the peppers (Serrano & Jalapeno) with the ale afterwards. Goes down and warms the tummy for sure, but drinkable. The pepper taste doesn't last or burn your mouth but does hang around in your stomach for a bit. Lighter to medium bodied with perfect carbonation for this style of brew. I had some other chili brews before and this one was OK but nothing really special. I wouldn't go buy a 6-pack of it but maybe a single one every now and then.

Clear gold color with a modest white head that disappears quickly.

The aroma is initially typical light malt, then a hint of jalapeno creeps in, actually not bad.

The taste is in the same vein, light biscuity malt up front and then a jolt of heat in the back of the throat and the taste of jalapeno and serrano peppers kicks in. The pepper flavor is actually pretty decent. Hot enough to get your attention but not really overpowering.

Light bodied, fairly drinkable if you're OK with the heat.

Altogether, better than I expected. Not really great, but could go well some decent Mexican snacks.

Appearance- Standard golden ale, blonde to semi-orange

Smell- Strong chili notes. Hot.

Taste- Mellow start of a mediocre golden ale and then an overpowering heat of jalapenos. As per the Chili Style, jalapenos are quite powerful and overstating their presence in the beer. The heat is semi-uncomfortable and not all that tasty. Too much heat, not enough flavor. Poor balance of peppers.

Mouthfeel- Very thin, minimal carbonation

Overall- A better selection of peppers would have contributed to a much better balance of heat to flavor. Was disappointed in this beer. Being a big fan of the Chili Style this could have been better.
