Alengrin (3545) - BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2015
Chili pepper flavoured pale lager - an ominous feeling creeps into my memory, whispering "Cave Creek"... This is thankfully a lot better: thick, sticky, dense, snow white head over a greenish pale blonde beer with light haziness. Aroma indeed breathes the crisp sharpness of freshly cut red pepper, along with flowers, sourdough, white bread, apple peel, even a vague hint of banana bread. Crisp malt fruitiness in the mouth but, expectedly, low in esters, a bit softer and lightly bready in the middle, some baker’s yeast, faint apple touch and then there it is: a soft and subtle but unmistakable ’piquanterie’ of fresh red pepper, not burning, but adding complexity and a tangy feel to the whole, pairing quite well with the soft leafy hop bitterness. More than just a gimmick like many more industrial pepper lagers: this is a noble Pilsener with even certain Landbier-like traits, in which the chili pepper is adequately applied to add an extra flavour instead of dominating everything. I kind of like this, and I am seriously becoming interested in anything else this brewery does.

Aroma: Fresh, malt, grain, citrus, hop, soap. Appearance: Turbid yellow/gold beer with a steady white head. Lots of bubbles thanks to the carbonation. Taste/Palate: Starts sweet and fresh, gets more bitter and ends spicy thanks to the pepper.

sweet malty and a bit of hoppy aroma. From the bottle, good carbonation. A tiny of vegetables but chili. A tinckling hop palate (from the chili?). Bitter and a bit malty aftertaste.

Very surprising Pilsener by the 7 Deugden. The Pilsener goes incredibly well with the spicey red pepper added. It makes this a spicey and refreshing beer.

Een wat weeige geur en smaak. Iets zurigs ook, beetje funky. In de mond is t na normaal bier vrij kruidig en dan komt de peper hit in de finish die me wel bevalt. Omdat ik er verder weinig aan vind komt t niet als meer over dan een gimmick.

oh6gdx (23131) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottled. Hazy orangeish amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is pepper, some floral and fruity notes along with mild bready malts. Flavour is a bunch of spices, bready malts, some mild toffee as well as mild zesty notes. Strange, but still quite balanced.

adamnowek (789) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2014
Very herbal pilsener. Opaque and a bit orange in colour. Is that spice at the end of the taste?

DwarfeD (1793) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Pale yellow with a small white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Herbs, spices (hot pepper), citrus, grain and grass. Ok brew, but a tad too herbal for my taste.
