Bottle from Village Beer Merchant. Quite lagerish initially, with peppers in the finish. As I got through most of the bottle, the peppers build up and its more refreshing. Grows on you. Have liked more spicey bolder of this variety, and this was not bad, drinkablity is good.

I got in line for this the minute I saw it at Ithaca Brewfest. Golden pour with a tiny head that is white. Aroma is spicy, jalapeno pepper, black pepper and some nice toasty malt and grassy hop undertones. Flavor is crisp and spicey, peppery and some hot pepper that tingles the taste buds. Pretty Great, If you get a chance, try it.

Draft at BuffaloBrew Fest 2009. Pours a lighter pale yellow. Spicy pepper aroma. Pepper juice & beer. Taste is pepper hot with lingering pepper burn. strangely balanced & not too bad

Ultra clear stoplight yellow. Head is white, short-lived. Bubbles stick to the inside of the glass. The smell is pure jalapeno peppers. A smoky, spicy aroma that slaps you in the nose. Hint of roasted malt underneath. The mild, bready notes in the taste are overshadowed by the peppers, which I’m assuming replaces the hops. The latter smokyness (on the back of the tongue) is closer to a Rauchbier. It’s different and pretty good. The peppers burn the throat a little, but in a good way. This beer is pure liquid nachos, brother. No way around it. I like it; truly unique.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Spicy jalapeno pepper aroma with a touch of sweetness. The flavor is nowhere near the overpowering mess that is Cave Creek Chili Beer. Peppers certainly feature in the flavor, accompanied by just a touch of spicy heat. A nice hint of sweetness rounds everything out. A solid chili beer, I’m not a huge fan of chili beers in general, but this one is damn good.

Thanks to Israel for sending this along. My first Chile brew, cool. I poured it into my Sam Adams glass it produced a finger worth of white head that diapered fast and left no lace. The brew was a light orange in color with tons of bubbles coming up from the glass. The aroma was like smelling a bottle of hot peppers nice and fragrant. The flavor was an interesting pepper flavor with some sweetness to it as well. It has a nice light feel to it with enough carbonation for your tongue. A real interesting brew I finished the bomber. I think that was enough for one sitting, but I will look for one in the future

Had this at TAP NY. Brewed with Jalapenos and Anaheims, this thing just shines. Pours an almost hazy golden amber with a bit of a white head. The nose is redolent with jalapeno heat and lots of fruit from the peppers, along with a touch of vanilla. Sweet, with a touch of heat, but nothing searing, and a lot of pepper fruitiness. Finishes with a little more heat, but again, nothing tongue killing. Had this not been recommended by a couple of other people who had been there on Saturday (I went on Sunday), I probably would have steered clear of this one. But I must admit, this was remarkably good for a chili beer. Really well balanced and with enough depth to make it a nice beer. Not sure if I’d be able to put away a whole bottle of it by myself, but the couple ounce sample I had was delicious.

Pours a nice golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet malts and jalapenos for sure. Taste is sweet with a hint of smoke and chili peppers a a hint of heat. Very balanced and well made beer. Would go great with a burrito or any mexican food no doubt. I paired it with a potato perogie with sweet caramelized onions. Sweet food spicey brew, great!
