3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Standard Market. I admit, I do like my chiles in my beers. Mix of spices in the nose. Hazy straw color. Taste brings on a light burn of chiles right at the start. Ginger is there, too. Can’t quite catch anything resembling lime, except for a note that I usually find with lemonglass, so I guess that’s it. Keeps up a little burn at the back of my mouth, but once swallowed, there’s little after-taste.

Aroma of chili assaults the nose. Difficult to smell anything else, although on subsequent sniffs I believe I can detect a hint of lime. Pours a hazy lemon yellow. Very spicy. It is burning the back of my mouth. No doubting this is a chili beer. Not very complex. Cannot taste either the lime or the ginger. The body is light. Carbonation is average. Overall, not a bad beer for a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, off white head, with no lacing, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.........nose is moderate Thai chili, light lemon, stronger lime, minimal malts and hops, balance to the adjuncts.......taste is slightly sweet with light wheat, mild lemon/lime, and heavy Thai chili, light ginger, mild malts and hops, with very heavy long lingering chili heat......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The base beer is very light and utterly dominated by the chili, with the ginger and lime making lighter contributions. The base beer could use a rework. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Spicy smell with chili. It really smells thai, like a thai curry. Similar taste. Very spicy and hot with a strong afterburn. Nice in small amounts, a bit too hot for me though.

Glass at the ballast point brewery. Pours a light yellow. Tai chili gives it a nice heat, but it's not too much. Ok.

Pours yellow with a greenish tint and a rapidly dissolving head. Yeast, cardamon, coriander, lime, chili and ginger aroma. Yeast, coriander, lime and ginger flavors with a chili finish. Light body and lively carbonation. Better than expected but expectations were low.

2016-04-29. Lightly hazy pale yellow body, nice foamy white head. 3++ Aroma of lime and ginger up front, hints at lemongrass, chili, grassy wheat. 7+ Flavour is lovely for about two seconds, lime and wheat, then a large amount of hot chili. Burns at the back of the throat. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pleasantly reminds me a bit of a spicy lemongrass soup. Way too much chili for me unfortunately. 7/3/6-7/3/13-14 Bottle shared by Blankboy.
