A- A hazy straw yellow, 1 finger head of foam, some lacing

S- Light notes of wheat, citrus, peppers.

T- Light grain flavour with a nice malt presence, hints of citrus, chili peppers start off slowly but man, mid palate on it gets big and after the swallow, there's heaps of heat. The warming in my tummy is very soothing.

M- On the high end of light bodied, low but adequate carbonation.

O- This is a very good chili ale that actually BRINGS the chili taste and heat that a lot of others only promise. Yum!

Pours a hazy, pale straw color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of chili, pale malt, and a hint of sweet malt. Does not fit the style of a Rye Beer, this is a Chili Beer that has been mislabeled. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level; noticeable heat. Tastes of chili (not particularly fresh or strong), pale malt, and slight sweet malt. Overall, good appearance, but body, blend, and aroma are considerably weak.

On draft at the brewery.

The beer is pale yellow with a mild haze and a small white head. Wheat and cracked pepper in the aroma. Heat really emerges in the flavor, with chili powder and hot pepper. Surprisingly drinkable for a chili beer. Wheat and light citrus up front, then a blast of chili heat. Thin body with light carbonation. A four ounce sample was plenty.
