COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Pours an opaque orange/amber. A rather weak aroma of roasted, caramel malts with very little hops.

I have had some beers that were pretty heavy on the chiles, this was a bit more mild than I was anticipating. Itís got a nice sweet caramel flavor that balances the smoke and the spice. Tasty.

Medium brown color with a beige head. Spicy chili aroma with some malty undertones. Dry, spicy finish. Not in love with this one.

17 nov 2012, bottle. Nut brown, clear. Nose is sickly sweet malt, maybe some grape jelly. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet caramel malt. Really sickly caramel malt. Ugh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle] Dark brown pour and with a small dark brown head. Sweet brown sugar and caramel nose. Taste is of sweet caramel and molasses. Mild grass and lingering residual sweetness in the finish. Not much heat from the ancho. OK overall. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Draft... Dirty medium mahogany, light tan head, too light on the fringes of the body... The nose is restrained, just not much going on, light caramel, just sweet no pepper at all... Tastes so boring and a bad mouthfeel makes it hard to drink, light toasted sugar, more caramel, feel is rough and harsh, was so drained on sand pepper. Iím guessing this is the sandpaper... Another bad 5 rabbit but more drinkable then their other flagships

Pours ruby-brown with a small off white-head. Aroma reminds me of a lager with a little bit of spiciness-- not a nose I really enjoy. Taste starts off slightly sweet and sour, then a little bitterness comes through. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Something about this is just tastes like a lager, and I donít really like it. Not picking up on the chile ancho at all. Not bad, but not memorable. Would not buy again (and def. not worth $10.99 for a 6-pack).

Pours a mahogany color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong of the caramel malts with only a hint of the chile. Flavor is also overly sweet from the caramel malts. A slight hint of the chile comes out on the finish with only a slight spicy flavor on the finish.
