Interesting beer. Is what it says it is and no more. Appearance is really disappointing. Looks like a almost flat yellow beverage, little head or carbonation. Aroma has just a hint of chilli. Taste is a really good, full on chilli hit. Fair bit of burn in the chilli! interesting beer but not the tastiest beer. Would be really good blended with the mango beer!

330ml bottle. BB 2015. Pours a pale straw colour and didnít even attempt to form a head. Aroma of sweet white wine. Initial mouthful gives you a belt of chilli heat. Subsequent drinks reveal some sweet light grain but itís all dominated by the lingering chilli burn. Very thin, watery body. For those that love chilli, this is for you. For those that love beer, avoid like the plague.

Bottle from BWS April 2013. There is a bit of heat in the first taste but not as hot as some chilli beers. The finish is like the summer weather forecast - long, dry and hot.

bottle, picked up at the union in newtown. certainly not short on chili - somewhat generic heat though; in my case the heat seemed to make the beer froth in my mouth; close to undrinkable but i give them marks for pushing the envelope

ComradeK (1042) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a small white head, which fades rapidly and leaves no lacing. Dried chilli is the only really noticeable aroma, maybe a little cardboard. Likewise, aside from a little grainy malt, potent chilli is the only real flavour. Unfortunately it tastes more of dried chilli flakes than fresh chilli. Really just a gimmick.

Well, they werenít lying about the chilli! It is actually difficult to rate this beer because the beer is too spiced, after the first sip all you can taste is the burning feel of chilli. This beer is definitely not brewed as a session beer, nor as a beer to be enjoyed typically, but a novelty of people who particularly enjoy chilli. Worth trying, but only once.

The absolute worst beer, what were they thinking? It has no qualities of a beer, itís just a hot yellow liquid, and because itís liquid it reaches places of your throat that a regular chilli would never reach. This is a terrible beer, for shame Matsoís.

Hop_Hedonist (247) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014
I have a soft spot for chilli beer but this is the worst chilli beer - and quite probably the worst beer I have ever had the misfortune to drink - no redeeming features - like chilli oil has been added to water - short lived fizziness as found in a soft drink - a few sips to confirm the horror and then down the plug hole. A disgrace. Matsoís - how dare you charge money for this rubbish.

To be fair, this is a pretty difficult beer to rate and on top of that, itís the type of beer which isnít going to warrant a fantastic score anyway. It is what it is. Marketed well for chilli heads. Itís pretty much really peppery chilli in beer form. I am not a chilli fan and canít really see how people can get through a 6 pack of these but apparently they can. Kudos to them

BB 29/02/14. Poured a clear pale gold colour with no head and no lacing. Low carbonation with medium bubbles. Aroma with a hint of chilli. Taste of chilli heat from start to finish; like a chilli cordial. Very light body. A real chilli after taste dominates everything? Great if you like chilli.

I am surprised at how much they can stuff a beer up! In fact I donít know if I can safely call it a beer, maybe carbonated crappy chili sauce! Look I love chili, it is a versatile cooking ingredient and fresh chili on many meals can turn it from meh to yum, but what Matsoís seem to have done is leave all the flavor that make a chili more then just heat on the brewery floor and take the heat, add some black pepper and add it to some unidentified* amber coloured liquid, bottle and carbonate it before passing it on to the unsuspecting suckers that they like to call customers! OK admittedly it does warn you on the label but seriously?
