3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A blonde lager with a KICK! Reminds me of garage projects day of the dead but in a blonde form. Lighter but not too light. Big chilli hit after the initial usual lager taste to the palate. Good one

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma is subtle to begin with. Slight watermelon and spice characters. Body is light and same with carbonation. Taste is watermelon which becomes more prominent as it gets warmer with a massive chilli bite to finish. The heat from the chilli is more in this than the day of the dead but I enjoyed day of the dead more. Still a great beer tho

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTTLE. See through straw in colour, very thin white head. Weirdly I couldn’t get anything of the nose?? However; HUGE chilli kick with a generic lager crisp taste... Chilli hangs around in the aftertaste, with a solid bite... not my usual choice in beer
Sourced Cape Cellars

On the nose there’s typical marco-lager notes and nothing much else, a bit of spice. It’s really light in the mouth for all of about 5 seconds, and then the chilli hits, but in a good way, not a big fuck-off hit of it. There’s a tinge of bubblegum and a sneaky testicle-tickle of the promised watermelon and rose water. It’s pleasant, it’s something different and it underpins what these lads are all about, namely, beautness.

Although I’m not into chilied beers, I was seduced by the super cute presentation. But in spite of my dislike for fiery hot beers, this is absolutely gorgeous. Lots of watermellon and rose water, especially on the flavour. Yes, it is ultra hot, but the spiciness does not overwhelm the other flavours. Nice and resinous, I adored the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle expiry July 15. Not much aroma to speak of, tastes like a traditional lager with a massive chilli hit in the back of the mouth. After the first few sips the flavours of watermelon and rose water come through but are overpowered a little by the chilli. An interesting drop if you are looking for something different

An interesting brew that compliments their ’Day of the Dead’ (but is overshadowed by it in the end).

Bottle from The Wine Emporium December 2013. Another great artsy label and the beer wasn’t bad either. A bit earthy but okay.

very good - initially its just a lager then the rest of the ingredients arrive and its all on. Very thirst quenching as a good larger should. Eat your heart out Corona.

Subtle and interesting.
Art work on the bottle is amazing.
Aroma of habenero chilli and maize up front with the watermelon making an appearance with first sip. Was expecting full on flavour and heat. Was a little disappointed when this was not the case but started to appreciate all the subtle flavours and restraint in the glass.
Wonderful beer over all.
