Tap @ Eskes. Pours a fairly clear golden appearance with a white head. Straw, veggie, lightly spicy aroma. Kind of bland, watery, green chili, pale malty flavor with a fair amount of spiciness on the finish.

This is the 3rd chile beer I’ve tried, and only gave it a chance because it was a free sample. Thank goodness I did give it a taste because it proved to me this style can be rewarding. The chile scent and tongue tingle was there, but it didn’t overtake the palate or have nasty lingering effect.

Strykzone (4826) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2012
A friend brought this bomber at the brewpub. We shared it. Dingly and cloudy golden with sediment in the bottom of the bottle. The nose is green peppers and that is also the taste. Decent malt, too, but subtleties are difficult to pick out through the peppers. They are warm but not over powering. A decent version.

Cavie (3753) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Tap at the pub. This beer pours a clear light yellow to straw color. Has a very small amount of white head. Very little. Aroma is sweet, grainy, with maybe a bit of spice. Hard to pick out on the aroma. Flavor is dry grains, a touch of popcorn with the chili spice and heat on the finish. I’m pretty sure there might be a touch of diacetyl in this but the spice covers up a lot.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2011
bottle brought to dak’s on 1/31/11. pale hazy yellow with a short lived white head. it smells like the inside of a fresh chocolate pepper... mixed with hatch chiles, rice and a touch of citrus. the palate is a bit too sweet for me... kinda like a sprite with chile added... but it rocks a great chile aftertaste. it is crisp and mild (heat) enough to make me want to drink more of it though it does seem to have an artificial sugar thing going on.6/3/6/3/14

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy yellow. Bright and assertively green chili aroma is unmistakable. I like how they didn’t hold back on it. The body is light and quaffable. Considered giving the palate score a 4 because of how welcome the heat is on the back of my throat. The flavor is really mellow, and balanced. Seems like just the right kind and amt of green chili and the right type of pale malts. Finishes clean, even crisp. Good enough to have a pint of, and actually a good job for what can be a difficult style. But if anyone is going to succeed with a green chili beer it better be a New Mexican!

Hazy blonde. No head. Abundant green chile aroma. A little watery but a very pleasant, mild chile character to balance.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of green chile (smells like a spicy tortilla soup). Flavor of spice initially, tortilla, and heat in the finish with just a hint of vegetables. Certainly spicy but not overwhelming. Hard to drink a lot of, but definitely drinkable, and the best green chile beer I’ve had thus far (out of 3). They know what they’re doing!! 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

Bottle pours cloudy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma shows notes of chili pepper and citrus. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of bread. Overall body is light and the chili is somewhat spicy. Doesn’t quite mesh but definately interesting.
