Not the beer for the faint hearted: Golden in colour this beer looks sufficiently innocent - but it is spicy, very spicy. Little does the nose (with just a hint of cooked vegetable) warn you of the stinging bite the chilli peppers add to this full bodied lager. The effect of capsicin - the active substance in chilli - cools you off in summer and heats you up in winter. While many believe it takes a strong man not to cry when consuming this unusual beer it turns out to be popular with ladies too. With those who are hot, very hot.

Moravius (526) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2014
Flasche aus dem Bierautomaten der 7 Stern Bräu, Wien. - Helles Orangegelb, trüb, kurzlebiger Schaum. - Eher milder Geruch nach Gemüsepaprika, dazu eine deutliche Peperoni-Note. - Der Antrunk ist nur im ersten Moment mild, bevor sich beißende Schärfe breit macht - keine fruchtige Paprikaschärfe, sondern brennende, an Sichuan-Pfeffer erinnernde, die Taubheit auf der Zunge und im Abgang ein übles Kratzen am Gaumen bewirkt. Unangenehm brennend scharfer Nachtrunk. Anschließend sind die Geschmacksnerven so betäubt, daß an eine eingehendere Verkostung nicht mehr zu denken ist. - Fieses Zeug, das mit herkömmlichem Bier wenig gemein hat. Mein Geschmack ist es nicht.

olio (6273) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
50 cl bottle.
Pours hazy color with a mild head. Fruity and malty, nothing more, too herbal. Herbal and grassy, mild spice notes, crap. I’ve tasted better chilli beers.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
500 ml bottle. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet fresh green jalapenos, spiciness, pepper and grass. Flavour of grainy malts, bread, very aggressive peppery spiciness, raw jalapeno, grass and some green vegetables. Very spicy, but the chili notes are rather subtle. It’s more of an overly spicy beer. Lingering spicy finish. Heat builds nicely towards the end. Unique. It’s heavy but you will like it.

Brandman (2097) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma of wet malt, yeast and some vegetables. Flavour is sweet at first seconds but then the quite green chilli burn begins. Long aftertaste. Bit watery but there definitely is chilli in this one.

Iznogud (637) - CROATIA - JUL 15, 2014
On tap at 7 Stern Brau, Wien. Hazy golden with white head. Malty pepper aroma. Chilli flavor which burns throat. Had trouble finishing it. Not my thing.

rosenbergh (6990) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Draught at the 7 Stern Bräu, Vienna, Austria. Hazy pale golden colour with a tiny frothy white head. Chili, bell peppers, mild cooked vegetables and some malt in the aroma. The flavour is very spicy. It burns like hell so there’s no other sensations... I like chili but this is exaggeration. Burns. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quack-Duck (7958) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
bottle from trhe vending machine at the brewery. Golden colour, small white head, aroma of paprika powder and chili. Malty start, very, very hot chili flavours tuning in at once, killing any other flavour that might be present. Hot, hot, hot. No, no, no. Never ever again.

Draught @ 7Stern. Very cloudy, pale golden color. very short-life small white head, slight chili aroma, from light to medium body, smooth fizziness, sweet malty and very hot chili taste, very hot palate. This brew is too hot for me.

mile (3029) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, very small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, spicy (chili). Body is medium, malty and very spicy. Finish is average to long and extremely spicy. Not really enjoyable "beer".

BaroneBirra (249) - Gorizia, ITALY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Opaline yellow with small head. Fresh chili and clams aroma. Shitty taste of bloody mary, chili covers everything and makes lips burn! Not drinkable at all
