Too bad I can't rate it less than a .6. This stuff is NASTY. My girlfriend bought me a bottle of this crap just to try it. It came in a 12 oz. clear bottle. It was so old, the pepper had turned a grayish brown color. I don't know what color it was supposed to be, but it has long since passed it's prime, that much is certain. I didn't even waste my time using a glass on this swill. A faded, washed out yellow color, with that nasty colored pepper in the bottom. As soon as I opened it, I knew it had spoiled. Smelled like rotten, old tennis shoes. Tasted terrible. Just plain hot. No beer flavor or aroma. Smelled like hot sauce also. I won't bother buying this crap, that's for sure. I ended up pouring it out after 2 sips. Nasty stuff, this.

I tried this out of sheer curiosity. Is it as bad as everyone says? Yes and no. The first whiff of it was nothing short of disgusting. The floating pepper also did nothing for me. The first sip was a mix between terror and curiosity - "so that's what it's like to get shot" kind of a mindset. The taste of the beer wasn't so good, but I've had worse. And the aftertaste was like fire. After a few more sips, my mouth started to feel like I had been drinking out of bottle of salsa. I felt that maybe this beer would complement some nachos quite well. Did I finish an entire bottle? No.

Imagine if you (s)will; Carbonated jalepeno pepper juice. There you have it. This beverage must be meant as a novelty item or gag gift. I can't imagine anyone seriously drinking Chili Beer on a regular basis.

Hmmm ... chili pepper + beer = disaster. I took a sip and it just burned my lips, tongue and throat. I couldn't drink more than the first sip. My first completely terrible rating ever.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2004 My god what twisted mind came up with the idea to put a chili pepper in a beer?! I thought the Forisgaarden Chocolat was bad, but this beats all. One sip caused my throat to be on fire for more than half an hour. From now on i praise the German Reinheitsgebot...

skunky and chili in the nose. serrano-ish. the gray green chili bubbled ghoulishly for half an hour. flavor is almost all heat. i was hoping for something mucilagenous or milky or otherwise way more nasty from this brew. The brewer dropped his name from the label - darn.

Nasty!!! I had to give it a try, with the cute little chilli inside the bottle. Clear pale yellow color with absoulute no headl Very skunky. The only good thing was the hottness.

Finally got the nerve to try this. Aroma is similar to pickle juice. Yellow/green color with no head. Flavor of pickles and chilli pepper. Hold it the drain is calling.....

No, no, no, no, NO! Not so much hot as it is horrible. Corona with a chili in it. Heart burn in a bottle.

I never thought I would drink a worse "beer" ( I use the term beer loosely) then tequiza. I was wrong. Once when I was in 8th grade, I was dared to chug a bottle of Tabasco and it was better than Cave Creek's Chili beer.
