On tap at the brewery from notes taken at the time. Pours cloudy golden color white head and poor head retention. Aroma is of peppers and that is about it. Taste is slight wheat with a jalapeno aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bowser’s because I needed something to try and scrape the diacetyl off my tongue, and this seemed like the best way to go about it. For a chili beer, this (shockingly) is remarkably pleasant. Pours cloudy gold, with a thin white head and poor lacing. Nose is fresh jalapeno peppers, with some light clean malt, but the peppers rule the roost here. Flavours of sweet wheat and fresh bell peppers, with just a little bit of heat from the pepper. Really nie jalapeno character. How is it that they can make such a surprising Chili Beer, but they make the worst IPA on the planet?
