Style: Chile Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Enjoyed on tap at the Thirsty Moose. A good drinkable pilsner for me, with turned up heat. A base of malt and wheat mostly, I got very little hops. A nice one and well needed to break through a taste lull.Little colour or head. Average plus mouthfeel.

Poured from the bottle into a pilsner style glass.

A real brassy yellow, but quite a bit cloudy too, with lots of very good rising pinhead bubbles, reaching towards a big soapy white rocky head. Head manages good solid retention.

Ask and ye shall receive my friends. It's ripping jalapenos! Wonderful pepper notes, toasty seeds, i can smell the garden green flesh just coming off this. The beer doesn't showcase much else, but I am really not complaining, I am just drooling and salivating smelling this. I hope this delivers on taste.

Well, palate is a bit one dimensional. However, it's a good dimension to be in. The beer is full of jalapeno pepper, with a mild acidity that finishes nicely without any burn. Playful classic lager carbonation but not much sense of malt presence here. Lingering peppers finish. Not really much else to say, it buries any sense of hop or malt taste.

Overall though, you can't deny how fun this beer is, and it sells itself as Spicy and with Jalapeno and it delivers in spades. Good times!
