Poured out of a 12 oz. can into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a clear, medium to dark golden color with many streams of little bubbles rapidly and continuously rising to the beer's surface. Has a nice fluffy white head that's well over an inch thick when first poured that settles to solid 1/2 if an inch thick with good retention and very good lacing. Aromas of chili peppers and lime alright, and in a good way too, along with some bready caramel malts. The taste is pretty much the same, with a bready, just slightly toasted, caramel malt sweetness that gives way to some chili peppers spice with a bit of a nice bite and lime. Rounded out with a touch of herbal hops. Nice balance of flavors. The heat burn from the chili peppers is mild overall, and its just there enough to make its presence known during and after each sip. Has a crisp, slightly prickly, also smooth and frothy medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish, and the spice heat of the chilies sit nicely on the palate in the aftertaste. A good beer here all around. Glad I picked this one up. Would certainly drink again.

From a can. Delivers on the promise of jalapeño and lime. The pepper is ther is the smell and taste, plenty of green vegetable there. Lots of the tart acidic lime too. Heat is very mild. Something just doesn't work for me though. Maybe the lime is a bit too forward. Interesting attempt but I don't need another sixer

It is what it says it is -- jalapeno and lime infused beer. I've had similar beers, and this isn't my favorite one, but I like it. The jalapeno heat is pretty mild, but catches you a hit on the back end. The lime flavor is a bit on the strong side, but compliments the jalapeno well. The base beer is pretty "whatever" -- this beer tastes decent, but it's not one I'd really care to have more than one of at a time.

I've gotta say, I grabbed this strictly out of curiosity, but I was pleasantly suprised. It's pretty mild overall, but crisp and clean, with just enough jalapeno to make it interesting. The peppers are more prevalent in the aroma than the taste, but the subtle heat is well balanced with a refreshing feel that will make this a regular in my golf course rotation this summer.

I love Chile beers but this was a disappointment. Pours murky and cloudy, smells of jalapeños and fresh cut grass, taste like aloe vera and green peppers, feels like water. Finishes with a taste or cucumber and leaves with a lingering pepper bite - a small saving grace. I like the heat that it departs with but sadly that's about it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: Copper/light gold. Appealing.
Smell: Peppers, but not in an overpowering hot sauce way. The smell really catches you, inviting.
Taste: Very balanced spiciness that doesn't burn your mouth and throat the way real peppers do. Pleasantly lingers in your mouth for some time. The maltiness contributes to that balance.
Feel: Light body, but it's a blonde full of chile. Tingles without legit pain.
