Twisted X Brewing CO. "Fuego"
on tap at the brewery 6 November 2015
listed as 6.5% ABV with 21 IBUs

Notes: Clear gold body beneath a short head of white. Limited head retention and lacing. Golden malt and some pepper appear in the aroma, followed by a clear note of pepper in the flavor. It's not really hot but you do feel it. As such it will build on the palate and cut down on its drinkability, but given that it's a pepper beer I think we can throw multiple servings as a benchmark of "drinkability" out the window and simply go with "How much did you like the first one?". One of the better commercially available pepper beers I've had. Worth trying. Nicely done.

I first had this on tap at the brewery, and later in 12-oz bottles.

Pours a nice, clear yellow. Pils/lager looking beer.

Aroma is fairly standard lager, malty with light hops. No jalapeño evident in the nose to me.

The taste is interesting. On tap, it starts as a fairly standard lager, but then a nice jalapeño flavor comes in at the end. On tap, it doesn't have a lot of the burn, but a nice amount of the pepper flavor. In the bottle, the burn is a bit more evident. However, it's not overpowering at all, just a light burn in the back of the throat as you swallow it.

Overall, this is more a beer I would drink with a meal, rather than a straight drinking beer. I think it really complements barbecue, and Mexican food.

Nice change of pace. Subtle jalapeño after taste makes for a spicy reprieve from your usual beer.

Medium body, quite spicy mouth feel but not over powering. Pretty amber, with notes of honey and citrus. Refreshing.
