Sample. Poured a pale yellow color with a tiny white head that was gone rather quick. Aroma was malts and dominated by the peppers. Flavor was spicy and vegetables. Thinner body. Not a big fan of chili beers. This one was drinkable though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a copper color with a tiny white head. The aroma was a sweet chili scent. The taste was straight forward amber beer with chili notes that build a little in the finish and aftertaste. Not an overwhelming chili beer. Spoke to the bartender and they have tamed it down since last year. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at 2011 Augusta Bottoms fest - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has lots of pepper that’s heavy on serrano along with some light malt, but it is pepper heavy. Light body with light carbonation. The flavor starts much like the aroma with more of the peppers showing through. Also the varieties show through on the taste - jalapeno, serrano and cheyenne. There is some light blonde ale malt as well. The finish has phenolic spice added to the pepper. This is a scovile fest beer while still maintaining beer aspects.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft served in a pint glass at Nick’s Pub. Pours a bright, clear gold color with a small white head that leaves some spots of lace in the glass. Aroma of chili peppers, sweet malts, and vegetal notes- simple and faint. Flavor of vegetal habanero peppers, pale and sweet malts, and some earthy, grassy notes. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. The spiciness doesn’t rest in the palate so much but I could feel the burn on my lips. I think it’s an unspoken rule that all Missouri brewers make at least one chili beer. It admittedly is not a style I generally like, but Augusta’s might be the best.
