Maybe a new batch, little different label, 5.2abv. Still tasted great, really enjoying the spicy brews.

This is a fine beer for making chili, and that's about it. I can't drink this. It's just too harsh on the peppers. It's like drinking straight pepper juice.

vomitous, rancid, my first straight chili beer and probably the last.

Golden yellow haze (unfiltered) in color.

Smells of Anaheim peppers and Tabasco.

Taste like a smooth, bitterless lager with extreme habereno burn! Not for the faint of heart. A little much for me perhaps.

Mouthfeel and carbonation is similar to that of a traditional unfiltered, lager.

I really enjoy this beer! With fresh chiles, you really get a full mouth of spice and refreshing lager. I love pairing this with cheeses and/or a nice bowl of chili on a cold evening.

I was excited to try this beer, good chile aroma and taste at first, but it had that wheatty finish which tastes like something rotten to me. The head was light, fluffy and effervescenty and quickly dissipated. Birdsong Jalapeno pale ale and Ballast Point Habanero Sculpin are way better. Those are the only other two peppery beers I have tried so far.
