Golden colour with no head. Some lacing.

Herbal and lightly spicy. Not really all that much going on though.

Smoky chilli and with a decent little kick. Great choice of chilli for this one.

Light body with moderate carbonation. Quite good.

An excellent beer and well balanced. The chilli character is both good and interesting given the smokiness.

I love a bit of chilli in my beer. Tried at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Gold colour, clear with dense white head. Nice-looking pilsener.

Wow, huge chilli heat on the nose, slight grain upfront that gets a slight nutty edge from the vegetative chilli aroma. Organic and slightly corporeal in all honesty. Pleasantly complex though.

Wow, massive chilli flavour as well. Spicy but without a lot of heat. Just a spicy capsicaian flavour. Weird, and interesting but not really my thing. I am, of course, the guy in the world who prefers the heat of chilli in beer to the actual flavour, so I'd like a bit more heat here to be honest.

Still not really big on chilli heat on the texture. It's there, but not really knock your head off kind of strength. Decent pilsener texture underneath.

A bit bland as a base beer, then chilli is added to dominate everything else. Would have liked more to balance out the chilli maybe. I've said chilli too many times in this review, too.

An imperial pilsner with chilli. Tried on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a golden colour with good clarity. Body is light and crowned with a firm, solid white head. Overall, it's a decent if not spectacular looking beer.

Aroma has spicy, fragrant capsicain all over it giving a fresh spicy fruitiness. True chilli comes through as well, melding more with some green hop characters and some rubbed indian spices. Fascinating stuff. I love it.

Clean pale malt on the front, with some berry and fruity chilli characters mid-palate. There's certainly a little burn from the chilli on the back, but it just seems to release more of the fragrant spices. Feel is mostly clear, with just that lingering burn to contend with.

Drinkable if you can withstand the heat. A very decent and very, very interesting brew from Emersons. Very solid use of chilli.
