Not as bad as I was expecting. I had Rio Grande Chile beer which was awful. This wasn’t good, but the spice was kind of interesting. Hard to drink a whole beer though. Rather pale and thin too.

ContemplateBeer (1879) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 14, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons); poured into a snifter, pepper included. Best by 2/18/16. Aroma: Reminds me of a peperoncini pepper from a Papa John’s pizza box; little to no base beer character comes through. Appearance: Pours gold with little carbonation; a fizzy white head quickly fades away. Flavor: Pepper juice up front with a steadily increasing burn in the mouth that never goes over the edge. I’m pretty wimpy when it comes to spicy food, and I can handle this. Again, not much base beer here. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, moderate burn in the finish. Overall: I don’t think this is a bad beer. It’s totally a gimmick, but it delivers in a mostly palatable way. With that said, one’s enough for me, but one’s enough of many craft beers that are further off the mark than this.

Not drinkable! Aroma of chili. Taste only of chili. Average carbonation. No beer characteristics left.

ozzy70 (357) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 26, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle. Has a real chili pepper in the bottle. Pours clear golden and watery, with no head. Aroma was very light but with some chili spice. Taste was spicy, yet smooth with a spicy chili finish.

Stank and spicey. Terrible vegetable aroma and bad. Golden pour, and spice sticks for a while. Botlte at a tasting a while back. Arizona!

Clear golden color with no foam, Aromas of chilly and malt, but chilly is quite overwhelming. Palate, very light no body, has some carbonation and very hot and chilly finish. Taste of pale lager and chili? Overall spicy and like eating a peper and drinking pale lager at the same time. I guess that is idea of this beer and for what they tried to achieve they did, When bought I did not expect it to be some sort of best beer, just for fun! :)

aroma is watered down apple juice; but honestly it’s almost nonexistent. Taste is watered down apple juice, then spicey chile peppers.

jbruner (3552) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Pours a clear gold from the bottle with thin ring of white head that leaves little to no lace. Aroma is shitty mexican lager with hints of chili over the top. Taste is huge chili, like drinking hot sauce, wow. Not as horrible as people say, but definitely not good.

SarkyNorthener (3496) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle from B&M, Walsall. Golden beer with lively head that fades to nothing, with a green chili floating around like a lump of shit in the bog. Aroma of green chili and veg. Taste is pepper, spicy chili and weak lager malts. Interesting, but one is probably more than enough.

Idiosynkrasie (5568) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, immediately fading, white "head". Slightly tart-ish, peppery spicy chili aroma. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hot and spicy, chili notes; soft palate, flat carbonation, almost a bit slimy texture.

AtronSeige (1086) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 13, 2015
Aroma: Medium-high chilli. Appearance: Briliant, dark gold body. No head. Flavour: Medium-high chilli. Medium chilli burn. Medium-light bready. Burn lingers for a really long time. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: The chilli is the main character, but the beer almost does not feature. The beer is not very drinkable and seems more like a party-joke than a beer that people would actually drink. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 21A. Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer 1C.
