3.76/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color; the rather modest head dots the side of the pint glass with lace

Smell: Toasty and grainy, with a distinct roasted pepper character

Taste: Toasted malt, up front, with the roasted hot pepper flavor arriving and dominated from mid-palate through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A rather fun beer; I wish the malt were a bit more interesting but, unlike most chile beers I have tried, this one gets the heat just right

Thanks, BeerHunter76, for the opportunity

I totally understand why people don't like this beer and I also totally understand why my feelings toward it are thought of as crazy by people. It's got a lot of chile in it. I mean a lot. Not like Punishment or Ghost Face Killah levels, but it's strong.

The aroma is pure jalapeno, to the point where you feel like you're burying your face in the chile stand at Central Market. The one with all the peppers near the produce. All those fresh peppers and your eyes start to water and you just know whatever you're cooking tonight is gonna be hot as hell and you're gonna love it.

Or rather, I'm gonna love it. Because apparently, others don't love that flavor as much as I do. Or, apparently, the aroma. But I do. Take a gulp and the adventure continues, coating the back of your throat with a magnificent peppery flavor.

With a name like Don Jalapeno, though, I guess I don't get what everyone else expected. I love it.

Not bad. A very Texan concept.

Golden-amber beer with a light head and a glass-round unbroken lace. Smokey, spicy - spices and a roast that has a sort of pine in the background. Love the little sting it has to it. The taste really exceeded in making this a winner. Noticeable smokey jalapeno - how creative?! A little bit of pine and an easy drinking mouth feel. Definitive little burn it has to it as well that sits on the back of the throat and tongue. What a nice change of scenery beerwise. Very well done and will be buying it again. Proud of this Houston brew as a fellow Texan. Cheers!

On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. The aroma is a mix of biscuit malt and fresh green jalapeno peppers. The flavor is more of the same and about what I expected. The biscuit malt is overpowered by the peppers, which are also accompanied by a little bit of grass. Unlike some other pepper beers, the chilis add more flavor than they do heat, which in this case is a good thing. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a orange amber with a nice head. Smell is definitely jalapeno and the taste is definitely jalapeno with a decent burn. Not too much body or other flavor but for those who like a spicy beer, this beer delivers. A true jalapeno beer that they really nailed in terms of delivering jalapeno.
