Horseheads Hot-Jala-Heim is a pretty clear, lively golden beer with a fluffy white head that fades pretty quickly. The aroma has notes of corn, jalapeno, DMS and a little toasty malt. It has a foamy medium body that’s pretty smooth with a quick finish that’s a bit scratchy. It’s a touch sweet and a touch bitter. Chocolate is detected. There’s a nice twang and spice from the peppers. It’s a little corny. This is more complex than I expected. It’s kind of like drinking a burrito. I didn’t figure out that there were Anaheims in it until I just about finished the bottle. Now it all makes sense.

Bomber. Clear light gold, decent head. Body isn’t too light... pale ale, not light lager. The heat is moderate to me, all back of the throat. I like it, but might have liked a tiny bit more. It was actually the malt sweetness and not the peppers that did me in for a full bomber. Still a good beer.

Bomber- pours a clear straw-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy peppers- jalepeno, slight sweet peppers, smokey and zesty on top ofa light crispy crackery pils malt. Flavor is spicy as well, spice kicks in towards the end, with more of the malt and hops upfront- smoked peppers and chipotle- with jalepeno sweet and heat especially after the finish. Ok.

Bottle. Smells extremely vegetal, some jalapeno flavor with not much heat. Some spice, with a squeaky, soapy undercurrent. Crisp, slightly watery flavor, with only a touch of heat in the finish. Not what I want out of a chili beer. The first step would be to skip jalapenos and go to a more interesting pepper.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy white head and good carbonation. Aroma is sweet and malty up front with a very nice and inviting aroma of the jalapenos and the mild smokiness of the anaheims. Flavor is sweet and spicy at the beginning. You can definitely taste the fresh jalapeno flavor with the very lightest touch of spice. The anaheims come through near the end and impart a light amount of smoke. Some mild heat at the finish. Was really looking forward to trying this one and it didn’t disappoint. Really good.

Bottle Shared at Ryan & Max’s Tasting @ Pauls. Pours a pale golden body with a white bubbly head. Pepper, celery sticks, hot bell peppers. Actually spicy hot going down, with a green bell pepper lush body and a warmer finish. Nice Vegetable beer.

hoppy aroma...cant tell which one...don’t smell pepper change my mind can smell pepper behind it. clear golden appearance. very smooth on the palate...only the pepper at the end throws it off. Does the job flavor wise.. great hop taxste early...(centennial?) then get smacked with jalepeno at the end. Great beer for what it wants.
