750 ml bottle into a snifter. Pours a hazy burnt orange with about 1 finger of white head. Smells spicy, grassy, and slightly yeast-y. Medium weight with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Good amount of habanero peppers up front with a grassy, wheat middle. Pretty smooth finish. Lots of spicy peppers on the aftertaste. It leaves your throat and lips tingling.

Overall, pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this beer is mild enough to be drinkable while still hanging onto its roots. I'm pretty sure this is just Cougar Bait aged on habanero peppers, at least that's what it tastes like. Probably not one to be consumed by itself, unless you just really love spicy food. I'm enjoying it with some chicken chimichangas and loving it.

Country Boy Brewing - Nacho Bait. 4.9% ABV. 750ml bottle split between two snifters.

Look: Pours a pale golden color, and settles into a hazy gold/yellow. Small white bubbly head, which subsides into a thin cap.

Smell: Spicy habanero peppers, backed by some hops, grassy wheat, and some light citrus fruits.

Feel: Light to medium bodied, smooth with some carbonation.

Taste: Some grassy wheat up front, with some citrus, like lemon and lime, but soon the habanero peppers come in, and start sweet, but end up hot and spicy into the back end. Aftertaste is nice and spicy, but not unbearable.

Overall: Since my first Chili Beer, I have been wanting to try more. Since Country Boy just released another batch of this, I picked one up. Great blend of flavors, and spicy peppers, leaving your mouth on fire. Paired great with some pizza.

This innocent beer has a nose of light fruits with a hint of wheat. The initial taste is slightly acidic and quickly turns into a blonde chipotle. The lingering mouth feel can be described as a wheaty slow burn.
