Thx! for the sample to Countbeer I believe. Ah the infamous, Cave Creek Chili Beer, clear bottle & an old shrunken chilli and everything. Got some in a plastic cup, this looks exactly like a small urine sample in a plastic cup, if there ever a beer which deserved to get 0/5 on appearance, this is the one. Nose carries some vegetables, too bad, bit of a white sugar & low quality old oily chilli. Taste is too much vegetable juice upfront, herbs, corn, these are the flavours which make this brew not particularly pleasant, it is not that bad actually. Finish carries the burn, nice burn, not that brutal, heat level like this in a pale lager is not too bad, neat. The chilli is low quality & oily, too bad. Flat, too much vegetable notes & other things mentioned.

Bottle to snifter (shared with jmborggren). Looks fine; a completely transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells cheap, doughy, and spicy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not good, but not as bad as I was expecting.

Bottle at the great green chili eat and drink off. Very pale yellow color, with a chili in the bottle. Aroma of light straw and chili. Taste is pure pain. No.

330ml bottle from Peckhams (Glasgow) for £1.49:
Corn with lager malts and a huge amount of spice coming from the chili in the bottle. There is chili naturally, as well as some very light sweetness and a faint touch of hops.
Light straw with a 2mm bubbly head that disappears very fast.
Bland & watery with some corn followed by a overpowering taste of chili peppers that is very spicy but not in a good way. Very warm on the tongue but other than that is is a plain beer.
Light & thin bodied with a really spicy taste that is warm on the palate and lingers for far too long.

A shockingly poor beer that tastes disgusting in parts and cheap throughout. It was spicy yet somehow still seemed bland and the taste (other than chili peppers) was non-existent. Nothing but a gimmick that should never have made it onto the market.

Wet gold with not one but TWO chillies floating in it. SPICEWORLD. I feel seriously blessed. Evanescent head gone in a fizz. Good natural chilli aroma with a slurp of tinned tomato. Good burn, pepper and sweet lingering heat. Ratatouille with an added sprinkle of fire. Leaves the lips slightly aflame. Doesn’t really taste of anything but chilli. Except the chillies, which taste slightly of beer. Love it.

Bottle at home. A present. Pours yellow with no head. Aromas, not surprisingly of green chilli. Doesn’t taste as bad as I had feared. Light spice. Then the poor lager base beer shows itself. Gimmicky.

I had this up in Northern California while trout fishing "trinity". Very strong aroma of chili pepper and a even stronger taste. Man you could feel it all the way down. If you like spicy then I would try it. Also seems really thick. Got to try at least once to say you did. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear light orange with no head. Looks like a still mead. Aroma and taste are dominated by strong chili pepper. A touch of sweetness with a strong heat in the finish that lingers a very long time. Barely drinkable. You better love chili pepper heat if you want to try this.

(Flasche) Es hat eine goldgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer kurzen weißen Schaumkrone. Beim öffnen der Flasche gab es ein leichte Gusching. Das Aroma riecht süß, nach nassem Getreide, leicht Essig oder überreife Cranberry. Der Geschmack schmeckt anfangs nach fauliger Chili, leicht süß und dannach nur noch mittel scharf. Es ist ekelhaft
