Not much smell to this only a little bit of spice... The appearance is standard light beer but gains a point For the floating chilli inside! Taste is spicy, more than I would have thought for mass produced...beer taste is way in the background though...basically drinking chili water mixed with a crappy beer

Bottle @home. Pours clear golden with fast disappearing tiny white head and a chili. Aroma lemon, sole spices. Medium carbonation, light mouthfeel. Taste bit spicy, lemon, but also bit watery. It does have a nice spicyness in the back of your mouth.

This is just undrinkable. Chilli that burns in your mouth. Shared between me and two friend, half of the bottle was left.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015 Gimmick lager from a transparent longneck bottle - ominosity is all around. Yellowish golden blonde colour, cristal clear with steady fizz, but apart from some loose, snow white, fizzy bubbles, no head at all... A green chili pepper unexpectedly pops out of the bottle and dives into the beer during pouring. I have never encountered anything more solid than this in any beer, apart from the whole hop cone in Maagd van Gottem, so this does spark my curiosity. Disappointing and weak aroma of dull, sourish grains enhanced by the sourishness of a pickled pepper; cooked corn is omnipresent as well, and so is the peppery, sharp, almost pizza-like spicy smell of the pepper - and that is where it ends, more or less. Neutral, minerally, bland onset, some faint sourish graininess and corny sweetishness but very diluted; the only exciting thing happening here is the burning chili pepper spiciness popping up from the middle onwards and overpowering the rest of the palate, though the awful corny, sickly sweetness manages to remain noticeable just as well. This is among the weirdest beers I ever tasted; this is just another bland gimmick lager trying to be different with simple means. I’d classify this among the league of tequila- and rhum-flavoured lagers: the beer itself is as simple and cheap as possible, but takes its ’personality’ from one particular, exotic, ’unbeery’ ingredient dominating the whole thing. This particular example tastes like the blandest, simplest, most watery tropical lager with Tabasco added - at least conceptually not that different from e.g. Desperados in Europe, where an equally bland lager is pimped with tequila extract. One-sided, weird gimmick without any merits in a purely ’beery’ context, burning the tongue and throat... Weird experience. Undoubtledly awful, an abomination in many ways, but I happen to like capsaicin quite a lot - had this been flavoured with anything else than a chili pepper, I’d rank this among the worst beers I ever tasted. Just another gimmick, like the tequila- or rhum-flavoured bland lagers, this one just happens to hit a sensitive spot with me, the only reason I am rating it a little bit higher than its infamous brethren. By the way: being open to any kind of culinary experience, I tried to consume a piece of the green chili pepper obnoxiously and hideously floating around in my glass like a turd he whole time, but apparently it has lost all of its flavour and heat to the beer...

CH-303 (1547) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Appearance: Light golden, clear. Not much head. One 1" green chilli inside.
Aroma: Some chilli. Nothing else.
Taste: Watery lager, followed by lots of chilli flavour. Not as hot as Fallen Angel Black Death which was unbearable and undrinkable. One-dimensional.
Bought: Beers of Europe, 330 ml, £1.79

I forgot the names fa this beer last super bowl Sunday when my Broncos were beings crshed(trying to drown my sorrows), but I distinctly remember how horrible it was. Lots of gross chile flavor and bad beer funk. Split with many, threw the rest away.

Chilli spices up an otherwise ordinary lager. chilli aroma, lots of chilli flavour and then a chilli kick. great heat balance. quite a decent beer! nice change.
