First off it's not as bad or as hot as the ghostface killah beer (I could'nt even finish that one). This beer is at least drinkable (to a degree) but not really enjoyable unless you're a hardcore spice lover, and as much as i love spice and spicy foods, spicy just doesn't mix well with a beer. It's good for the novelty but nothing else.

Best by August 2014. What have I done.

Pours a pale gold color with pepper sediment and yeast sediment both. No head at all.

Aroma of jalapeno and light cereal.

Flavor is a whole lot of nothing, and then a huge pepper burn. Like liquid fire. There's really no flavor, just slight substance. It's not a complete fail, but it is indeed pretty awful. Took a bite of the jalapeno and it tastes like a green bean.

Feel has some sort of mouthfeel to it, but I can't really pin it down. It's like a 1% milk heaviness, but with a lot of carbonation and heat. Hmph.

Overall, it's not the vomit fest I thought it would be, but it's still a pretty bad beer overall. The stuff of nightmares.

L- yellow with greenish tint. Organic matter located throughout. Sparse head, almost non-existent. Decapitated.
S- turpentine followed by a hint of embalming fluid.
T- literally unforgettable as your primary gustatory cortex will refuse to function normally for between 36 and 48 hours following ingestion.
F- burning sensation of mucous membranes. Shame, remorse.
O- if you suffer from any gastrointestinal disorder and have close relatives you honestly dislike be sure to change your will before drinking.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass with a chili pepper floating in the brew

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades very fast leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is massive of a hot pepper smell mixed with some other aromas of a light caramel nature as well as a little bit of a bread.

Taste – The taste begins with a light bready and caramel taste mixed with a hot pepper taste. The hot pepper taste gets even stronger as the taste advances and is met with some other black pepper tastes, all while the bready and the sweet get even lighter in flavor. In the end with the increase in the heat and with a loss of the bready and the caramel, a very watery hot pepper taste is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is very thin with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly on the lower side. A higher carbonation level would have certainly been better for the spicy tastes to help keep them from overwhelming the light tastes of the brew.

Overall – This was not a very pleasant beer in my mind. I actually couldn’t even finish it which is super rare. I would certainly recommend to stay away from this one.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: golden body with lots of fizz and foam on pour; no head retention at all. Oh, and it has a pepper in it

Smell: smells like a pilsner with just enough pepper smell to notice it. Reminds me of a chili relleno smell at a restaurant. Not that bad, actually.

Taste: I'm scared from the reviews. Here goes...Fairly smooth, refreshing, citrusy pilsner flavor to it, with some, but not a lot of pepper flavor; the heat starts to kick in pretty quickly, but it's not overpowering at all. It's about as much heat as a good bar of chili chocolate. I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how refreshing it is. As it warms up, the pepper's vegetal flavor starts to come through.

Mouthfeel: fairly thin overall, which is expected; but smooth and balanced.

Remarks: It think it's much better than some folks are saying. Maybe it has a short shelf life and they got an old one. I'm not saying it's an award winner, but heck, I'd buy it again, just for the conversation aspect.

The look of this beer was what attracted me.Its looks clean and refreshing with an actual chile in it.The smell was a hot saucy cheap beer.The taste was a horrible cheap mexican cerveza with intense heat.It felt terrible going down and was way to hot and cheap tasting for my preference.I was suprised how hot this beer tasted and will always have the memory of my brothers face as we finished these beers,but i would never drink this beer again.

It is what it is... a chile beer, what do you expect? It looks like a standard mexican pilsner in a clear 12 oz bottle with a chili floating in it, nice gimmick. It taste similar to the lager I mentioned previously with a little spicy bite to it. Not the best but certainly not bad. If you ever thought of popping a hot pepper into a bottle of Corona then these guys just saved you the time and effort and did it for you.
