2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml brown bottle from Beer & Bottles, Southampton. £2.59. Unfiltered. 4.2%. Hot Hot Hot Franís Chilli beer. Thereís such a sharp and fresh smell and taste of chilli in this beer. Indeed, thereís a whole chilli in the bottle. Itís sharp and hot - enough to excite the taste buds and bring out a gentle sweat, but itís not excessive. Difficult to comment on the beer, as the chilli dominates. As an excessive flavouring itís up there with American hops. Fine for once in a while as a gimmick, but I couldnít see myself having too many of these.

Pours a murky copper with a frothy white head. Smells of chili and capsicum. Taste is pretty spicy.
