Reid (2134) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2014
22 oz bought from the Grocery Outlet in Salem( one beside the railroad tracks) $4.59 Pours a golden straw yellow..small white head..leaves loads o lace! Nice aroma of cucumber and pepper( mostly cuck). Taste is balanced at first cucumber,lime but the heat of the pepper takes over after a few..also quite salty. Low carbonation and medium to light mouthfeel.. Odd one but not unlikable. I would hazard a guess if its 90-100 outside..this is a freezing glass would go down a treat!

On tap @ Flat Tail. Listed as 5% abv here. Pours very pale, slightly hazy yellow with thin creamy white head. Aroma is very light malt, juicy lemony citrus aroma that lingers. Taste is similar - sugary off sweet malt, juicy cucumber mid palate, then a lemony tart finish. Just a faint hint of heat on the back that I assume is the habanero. An odd beer, perhaps gimmicky, but some light refreshing flavors that do work well together. If they could reel back the sweetness a notch a make this a little drier, would be excellent.

Sledutah (6250) - Utah, USA - SEP 19, 2015
22oz bottle picked up at Texas Liquors in Carlsbad
Slightly cloudy golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly, no lacing. Aroma of cucumbers and mild green peppers. Flavors of cucumber up front, then fresh habaneros
Interesting, couldn’t get any lime though

I found this to be quite nice, a touch of a novelty, but delivers what it offers .. . very pale gold .. low low foam .. cucumber up front, very mild of the lime, and a nice dose of heat in the throat .. would go great with fajitas .. . .

Golden yellow, almost neon green. It’s got everything Mexican in it except tequila and Tapatio. Hot tamale! The habanero will take you back, and you will love it.

beastiefan2k (2963) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Yellow color with small head. Smells of light pepper, sweet malt, light cucumber. Surprisingly light. Flavor has most cucumber but sweet malts and light pepper heat.

Barreras (1368) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Pours a light golden yellow color with light to no aroma. Taste is a surprising vegetable flavor with a habanero heat after the swallow. The chili flavor lingers on the palate well into the aftertaste. An interesting beer that is unique but not something I’d drink again.

Ferris (8949) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2015
Draft - Light Habenero and lager. Clear gold with a decent white head. Cucumber and throat burning heat. If there were more flavor instead of heat to the pepper it would be much better and lime is lost.

"Pours a light blonde, as advertised. Aroma more cucumber and lime, less pepper, as is the flavor. I’d have liked a little more kick in here (like the saison which had an icy-hot thing going on with the peppers & cucumber) but while this was mellow and thin, it was enjoyable."

Getbetter (985) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - JUN 1, 2014
From a bottle. This is a very interesting combo with the cucumber coming out in the front to make it a great pairing for a hot day with the lime and heat from peppers in the aftertaste.

marcus (8000) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours clear blonde with a transient white head and a fruity aroma. There is a very light pale malt flavor with a peppery finish.
