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.

Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Flavor is an enjoyable combination of the base beer with subtle additions. Not usually my style - but this is one example I could see myself having another of.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Ballast Point, San Diego. Aroma is rather spicy with chili, lime and hayish tones. Flavour has burning chili, mild lime tones and some grapefruit. Chili takes over after one sip and lingers long. Ilike the chili burn here, but then again this has nothing more to give.
