Dark orange color with a white head. A weird rotten bell pepper smell. A bell pepper and caramel flavor. Overall I like some pepper beers but this kind of sucks.

On tap at El Bait Shop, Des Moines. My Brother ordered this. He’s a jalapeño fan. It wouldn’t have been my choice but, as far as pepper beers go, this one is drinkable. Really tastes like a jalapeño pepper. I knew this is blasphemous but this beer is almost better as a mixer with other beers ( we tried this) to add a subtle heat.

355ml bottle. File this one away into the lineup of beers that does not need to exist. Its very vegetal in the aroma and flavor is just watery jalapeno juice with no spice. This achieves absolutely nothing. Theres no spice!

God this is awful. Smells like a jalapeño pepper. Tasted like jalapeños with a carbonated finish. Sink pour. Thanks Kaser you crazy man.

tmoreau (3771) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured to a dimpled goblet at a friend’s party, showing a clear & bright, medium gold color, with a decent layer of soft white head foam, and equally presentable lacing. The nose was lightly herb & spice, with subtle pepper notes. Light bodied, but lively carbonation uplifted the texture, as a touch of fruit sweetness mellowed the already tame, peppery astringency, which came off a little artificial & soapy. Fairly sessionable otherwise.

On tap at Bent River Rock Island. Spicy peppery aroma comes through into the flavor but is lightly offset by a sweet fruitiness. Pretty smooth and easy to drink with a lingering spicy finish.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Copper pour with a beige head. Aroma is pepper. Taste is a light malt base with peppers. The heat was not as bad as I thought it would be. The second sip added more heat. Not to bad. Would be good with Tex Mex food.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Pour on tap at Radio Maria, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, pepper, bread, grass, some yeasty notes, touch of orange peel, some chili notes. Taste is a mix of hot chili pepper, some green vegetal notes with that into a bit of orange, some grass, hints of bread, finishing slightly spicy.

Strykzone (6766) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Clearish amber. A ring. A mild pepper nose. This was notboverdone as some are. Definite pepper but it works.

Ferris (12940) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft - Roasted sweet and spicy jalapeño. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Jalapeño flavours with an appropriate amount of heat. Pretty decent for what it is.
