PPRBSG09. Pours a light golden with a fluffy white head- fades. Aroma is jalapeno green fruity pepper kick, corn DMS, light solvent, fruity sweet peppers with hints of spice and cold smoke. Flavor is corny, grits, fried okra, corn with DMS- peppery, green pickled jalapenos, toasted and smoked peppers- spicy yet somewhat drinkable in the finish. Ok.

Growler courtesy of drfabulous. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of peppers, caramel, earthy. Tastes of earth, peppers, spicy, some heat, but not overwhelming. Light, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Growler at PPRBSG09. This was actually one of my favorite beers of the whole gathering! Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of salsa and tortilla chips. Flavor is largely tortilla chips with a slightly spicy finish. Not really spicy at all (and I’m very sensitive to spices). This is a great beer! If you like tortillas and salsa (like I do), then you’ll enjoy this beer! So drinkable too.

I love chili beers. This was great. Tons of green chilis on the aroma. Super jalapeno. Quite enjoyable actually. Taste is smooth then a nice jalapeno burn left me wanting another sip.

Growler. Aroma of green chili salsa. Flavor of that salsa with tortilla chips. Not hot at all, just mildly spicy and seemingly hit exactly the target they wanted to. Interesting take on beer, really don’t understand how it’s a sub-3, wasn’t overpowering or repulsive to me in any way.

PPRBSG09. Bottle. Pours an amber body with a golden off white head. Fresh peppers and light soil. Zesty pepper and fresh made salsa. Almost salad like pepper zest and light heat units. Best pepper beer ever.

Growler at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a clear brown with a light white head. Smells, remarkably, of peppers. But very one dimensionally. Best (ok, only other) pepper beer I’ve had is one from Horesheads... the difference? That one captures all of the sweet fruit that a nice pod has going for it, in addition to the heat. On here, all I’m getting is that raw green chili heat. That I could live with. What gets me though is that flavor wise, almost all I was getting, is corn. CORN! This tasted like corn. With some peppers mixed in. Not too hot, which is nice, as, if I could get past the corn, I could put down a bit of this. But the corn flavor is just overpowering here. Very one dimensional.

Spicy chile nose, smells savory like salsa. Medium gold color, poured from a growler. Tastes like spicy chili with a bitter edge, surprisingly clean for what it is, but the idea of a ’liquid enchilada’ makes my stomach turn. This beer tastes like plants.

What the hell is wrong with you folks, you order a pepper beer and then aren’t happy when it is a perfect pepper beer? Clean, light white bread malts surround by peppers all around. The peppers are a bit hot but nothing too strong. I loved it, got a whole growler to go afterward.
