Bottle w Chili! Exactly what you´d expect, beer with chili taste but no too spicy. I´d buy it again. Food Pairing: Anything with Chili!

De Cerveceria Mexicana propiedad de grupo Modelo que su vez es propiedad de AB In Bev(BEL) esta Lager especiada con un chile serrano de nombre “Chili Beer”, contiene un 4.7% ABV. De entrada visualmente es una cerveza clara de tonalidad pajiza, corona de espuma delgada y baja retención, carbonatación considerable y cuerpo flojo. En aroma solo impera la nota picante y un carácter parecido a el vinagre, no se puede apreciar otro elemento. En el sabor creo es pésimo desde un inicio el picante esta presente y la carbonatación con la que cuenta lo hace mas incisivo, se siente tambien sabor a vinagre que quizás sea por el mismo adjunto picante y el tiempo al que estuvo expuesto la cerveza o que tambien se provocado a una oxidación por el envase cristalino, esta a sido de las pocas cervezas que no e podido terminar, es muy picante y propicia una fuerte irritación estomacal, solo la compraría como suvenir.

Just tastes of chili with very little beer characteristics. A gimick, but hey, we all love a beer with a chili floating in it!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass with a chili pepper floating in the brew Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades very fast leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is massive of a hot pepper smell mixed with some other aromas of a light caramel nature as well as a little bit of a bread. Taste – The taste begins with a light bready and caramel taste mixed with a hot pepper taste. The hot pepper taste gets even stronger as the taste advances and is met with some other black pepper tastes, all while the bready and the sweet get even lighter in flavor. In the end with the increase in the heat and with a loss of the bready and the caramel, a very watery hot pepper taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is very thin with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly on the lower side. A higher carbonation level would have certainly been better for the spicy tastes to help keep them from overwhelming the light tastes of the brew. Overall – This was not a very pleasant beer in my mind. I actually couldn’t even finish it which is super rare. I would certainly recommend to stay away from this one.

Clear yellow color with white head. Aroma is malty and chili. Taste is bitter with a strong feeling of chili in your mouth. The beer taste is quite week. It’s worth of trying if you like chili and beer together, but it’s not a great beer.

330ml Flasche. Klar und golden fast ohne Schaumkrone. Schwer zu beurteilen, da die Chilli jegliches Aroma und Geschmackt killt. Ansonsten getreidig mit leichtem Körper.

Aroma is quite chili. Golden color, clear liquid with no head. Taste is something strange. Average carbonate. You can drink it slowly, otherwise it burns your mouth. Strong chili taste stays in mouth. If you looking for extreme taste, then this beer gives you this and lot more.

Bottle in the Club de la Cerveza, Playa del Carmen. Gimmicky. Hard to rate a chilli flavoured drink...I mean you just wouldn’t normally drink liquid with that flavour. It does succeed in being a moderately tasty chilli flavour and the underlying yellow beer is eell enough hidden. But I wouldn’t really want to drink it again.

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.
