We took our pilsener and “dry-hopped” it with roasted jalapenos. The result is a well-balanced beer with a very intoxicating peppery-type aroma, great jalapeno flavor, and just a bit of lingering heat.

The beer pours a brassy color with a tight, white head that is short lived leaving little trace. Plenty of rising bubbles, though.

The smell is of fresh jalapeno pepper. More the fruity aspects of the pepper than the heat. Light malts serve to indicate the pilsner heritage.

The pepper is front and center here, but not a significant heat right away. Fresh, fruity pepper with a nicely sweet malt base. If you ignore the pepper, there aa crackery malt hiding under the surface. Pretty enjoyable taste, the pepper returns in the aftertaste and begins to build some minor heat.

Medium bodied, nicely carbonated.

Overall, this is a beer I enjoyed. Fun take and fun to drink, featuring the pepper flavorings than the heat. Give it a try if you are looking for something a little different. Brewery seems to be up to good things, too.

So this beer grows on me, at first it's a bit much. Over spiced with Jalapeños but on the second sip I really start to appreciate the "heat" and spice from the peppers. Very well infused into the beer. Possibly my very favorite Pilsener ever. Right down my alley - possibly because I love spicy food and live in New Mexico.
