2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at VBGB in Charlotte. Looked nice, had a cool aroma of peppers and southwestern spices, but I could just not get into this one. The pepper taste was almost fake-tasting and was completely unappetizing. I couldn’t even finish it, actually - my fiancee really liked it, though, so maybe I’ll try it again sometime with a clean palate.

From a tap.The pour is an semi pale orange with a minimum white head.The peppee and hops go well togethor but neither are very strong which is great for making room for more.

Tap. Golden with small head. Mild pepperiness from the jalapenos. Light hops, mainly bitter. Not much flavor, just some bitterness and heat.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of primarily pepper. Pours cloudy amber with a long lasting white head and ringed lacing. The taste is very peppery but not an over the top burn. Enjoyable. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I liked it.

On tap at the brewery. Very well done. Prominent jalapeno in the nose and flavor. Crisp with peppery spiciness with just enough malt backbone to balance with the resinous hops and cut the lingering spice.

A really unusual pale ale. Has a plenty flavor with a slight hot flavor. Very bitter as well. Pours a light yellow in color.

Draft at World of Beer Charlotte. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing. Nice mellow jalapeño notes on the nose. Very flavorful on the tongue without being overpowered by heat. This one would session pretty nicely. Well done!

A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, jalapeno pepper over biscuit malt, light veggie notes. In mouth, biscuit malt over pepper with grassy notes, so so.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Good Bottle Co. Fairly heavy pepper aroma, still pleasant. Poured a reddish amber. Could definitely taste peppers on it but not overpowering. Enjoyable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Growlers Pour House in Charlotte.
Pours clear red-amber with a full, creamy and durable bone-colored head that leaves fine lacing patterns.
Smells rather ordinary, with no sign of the jalapenos. You will definitely taste the hot peppers in this beer, although Birdsong used enough restraint that I would not call this challenging to drink. There is some mild heat in the mouth which is why the ABV seems rather high.
O: a chili beer with little else going one, but that’s not always a bad thing. Worked well with a sandwich and fries.
