UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Clear yellow, no head. Weak aroma of typical lager. I was wondering how bad it could be with an aroma so weak. Oh man. Start drinking and when the back of your throat starts tingling you realize that this is not a beer. This is someone as stupid as me who chooses to drink the juice left over in the jalapeno jar. How about a garbage can-water taste? Rancid? The heat isn’t there; it’s the awful feeling all throughout your mouth that makes this so bad. On a more serious level, of the handful of chili beers I’ve had, this one goes way to far. Simply disgusting. I want my $0.99 back.

Clear light yellow. No head. Watery adjunct lager. Chili aroma. Chili flavor. Quite disgusting. Eat a chili instead.

Das Bier ist im Antrunk wie ein Pils und im Abgang wird es sehr scharf. In der Flasche schwimmt eine Chilischote, das sieht gut aus. Das Bier zu trinken ist ja schon fast eine Mutprobe! Es brennt wie feuer im Hals aber ich find es ganz cool. überings hab ich die Chilischote die in der Flasche war gegessen und diese ist nicht so scharf wie das Bier :-)

12 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. I wasn’t going to rate this, but tickers gotta tick. Pours a clear golden color with not much head. The aroma and flavor have pepper spice, skunk pickles, grains, I have had beers that were hotter in terms of the pepper, but they had some redeeming qualities as well. There is just not much that is positive with this one except that it may have been the first to do this.

It looks like the pickled peppers at stake n shake, but tastes worse. Drank because my kids thought it would be funny to give dad.

Clear bottle. Yellow color and pepper with a little heat. Just an awful beer, pretty much undrinkable.

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pale yellow, small head and no lacing. Sharp pepper aroma and biting hot chili taste. Light body, moderate carbonation, and a fiery finish.

Bottle. Fizzy clear yellow soda beer. Peppers in a cheap piss lager, corn, and hot. Hotter than I expected actually. It’s different, and I didn’t mind drinking it actually.

Golden-yellow, no head, although it has its very own chili pepper in the bottle which I failed to notice when buying and it certainly has a novelty value for me. In truth it’s a low-grade lager but it can get away with this as the chili is dominant in aroma and taste, with the latter aspect more dominant and leaves a very spicy hot aftertaste in the palate. Different, but not great. If you want to reduce the spice throw away the chili.
