Not my favorite. Figured I would give it a try but to me beer and peppers don’t mix. Would not try again.

Nero55 (720) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Copper with medium beige head. Aroma of roasted jalapeno and not much else. Medium body, vegetal jalapeno throughout with a slight spicy warming burn. The jalapeno over powers everything else. Might be better if it were a stout and not a wheat beer.

ARH (400) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap, poured into a small sampler glass. The aromas is fried jalapeno poppers. A straw pale color is topped by a light, kinda foamy, kinda thin bubbled head. It has an alright retention with with a very light lace. The taste is a spicy combination of medium sweet and light bitter. It’s a thin texture, light bodied beer with a fuzzy carbonation. It finishes with a nice, spicy sweet jalapeno mouth coating. It lights the palate on fire for a brief spell, but fades. The jalapeno note hangs around in the aftertaste for a bit, but cleans up nicely.

Drank this draw at El Bait Shop. Thank goodness my friend had a vodka red Bull that I could grab or I would have thrown up all over the floor. Never ever again.

Iphonephan (3248) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
On draft at the brewery in Rock Island IL. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Aroma of chili pepper. Flavor dominated by the jalapeno. Light bodied but carrying a pretty ferocious kick from the jalapanos.

wlajwl (3872) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 30, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Aroma is jalapenos and hints of wheat and milder peppers. The flavor is jalapenos, green peppers and lingering heat into the finish. Out of my least favorite style, this wasn’t bad, decent.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper. I do not care for these pepper beers at all. Spicy, lacks anything else.
