Its tough to knock a beer for tasting like spicy nacho when its called spicy nacho and you have to hand it to them that they achieved supreme spicy nachoness on this one but its just not something I enjoy drinking Tons of jalepeno popper notes with vegetale green pepper, fritos, fresh corn, hints of bready pilsner malts. Spicy, corny.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours clear golden yellow, toooons of carbonation as this beer explodes into head the second it touches the glass. The nose is pretty much straight jalapeno and green pepper spice, some stale grain is also present, some boozy chemical cleaner, and a hint of oxidation. Taste is the same, jalapeno bomb with a good amount of heat, slight metallic note, old grain and corn. Finishes with pepper heat and spice, weird.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Didn’t get any of the tequila barrel but definitely got the jalapeno in the aroma. Some light hops under it. Flavor is rather good. You get the jalapeno without getting your head blown off. But beyond that, there’s not much to it. Good but not great.

Draft. I’m looking for the label for this. If anyone has one, please let me know. I’d greatly appreciate it. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of jalapeno, corn chips, lemon and malt. Excellent and accurate deScription. Amazing beer. I could drink this all day. Medium body.

Keg at Craft Islington. Lively! It pours cloud orange with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is juicy, creamy orange, mango, passion fruit, pepper and minerals. The taste is orange peel, grapefruit, spice, dough, nacho, minerals, jalapeno and a touch of astringency with a lingering spicy finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Fun, interesting and pretty tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Hoppy Loft.
Dorée légèrement trouble, col blanc-cassé épais.
Arôme est de suite centré sur le piment avec un bouquet généreux de Jalapeno que je trouve tout bonnement super. Le tout garde un petit côté fleuri qui, pour moi, rappelle un peu le sureau.
Palais est, ici aussi, à fond dans l’idée de l’épice et cela fonctionne. Jalapeno est idéal pour une bière de ce faible niveau. La chaleur arrive en toute fin de bouche et perdure sans pour cela être trop dérangeante.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Craft Clerko, 27/01/14.
Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering that thins to a swirl.
Nose is big on green pepper, grassy, spice, toasty malt, orange notes, light mango.
Taste comprises orange pith, touch of green pepper - nowhere near as intense as the nose, hoppy tinge, spice, mango.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy bitterness and spice at the curtain call.
Decent balance for this one, subtle chilli heat in the closure, well done for a chilli beer.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg in CBC Clerkenwell, Meet the Brewer event. Colour is almost but not quite amber, with a thin white head. Texture looks slightly oily in the glass. Nose is remarkable. Big hit of jalapeño chilli, sweet corn, grain malt, little grassiness. On the taste it’s more vegetal, hot jalapeño and quite savoury with the sweet corn.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at the Evil Twin MTB event at CBC Clarkenwell. It pours a golden body with a medium white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of corn and veggies, jalapenos and light grass. Taste is balanced between some grassy bitterness and some grainy sweetness, with big notes of freshly cut jalapeno peppers. It doesn’t get much more true to the name than this. Medium bodied with good carbonation. An interesting one, but not to my likes.

Tap at CBC Clerkenwell at the Evil Twin meet the brewer event. To be fair I wasn’t expecting much when it came to this but it was actually quite a bit better than I thought it would be. Huge jalapeño and spice. It actually smells like a nacho. Not much else to be had. Basically nacho/pizza/Mexican food as a beer
