COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Jalapeño Pale is in a class by itself. Using our Free Will Pale as a foundation, we add a generous amount of fresh, hand-cut jalapeños mixed with a hint of awesome. Don’t be scared to try it! The Jalapeño is refreshing, crisp, and pairs well with the peanuts we have in the tap room!

can, from the Glass Jug, Durham. good aroma, sweet and spicy fairly vegetal with mild spice, cloudy golden orange color, good head and lace. sweet hot flavor. medoum body, thicker creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish woth a hot finish. it’s nice, fairly decent jalepeno beer kind of on the peppery side of jalepeno, though good heat on the finish. fun to have, wouldn’t drink it all night, but would have somewhat regularly

APPEARANCE- darkish golden color, almost orange, and somewhat turbid. Not much of a head. NOSE- slight bit of jalapeño at the first wiff. It?s a perfect scent of the pepper. FLAVOR- also very light jalapeño flavor up front, and a touch of heat at the very end. In the middle is a smooth pale ale flavor. NOTES- excellent version of a proper beer. I usually see stout chili pepper beers, and this has opened my eyes to the pale pepper beer.

This is a spicy beer. It is good as a taster but a full beer is a lot to handle. Darker yellow and spicy in flavor

Charlotte International Airport, NC - Whiskey River. Slight haze to the medium gold pour, soft white head, decent lacing. Arom has a nice pepper essence, some light spruce. Flavor has a decent light citrus bitterness, nice jalapeno burn without being distracting. Smooth mouthfeel, the burn is actually soothing.

Draft - Jalepeno jelly sweetness, hazy gold with a decent white head. Jalepeno , nice sweetness and a clean finish without the residual heat. Not bad.

My Bottom Line:
This Pale Ale’s jalapeno flavors are well blended with honeyed cereals and hop resins for an enlightening novelty brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the golden-hued yellow haze.
-The jalapeno is mostly aromatic and flavorful ; this is not a gimmicky spicy number.
-Balance is almost achieved (beer is on the sweet side for a Pale Ale).
-Drinkability is high enough.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Draught at the Birdsong, Charlotte, NC. Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Jalapeño and bell peppers in the aroma. The flavour is sweetish malty with chili and bell pepper notes. Not that strong but very well balanced. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
