Matso’s Chilli Beer (probably the hottest in the world).
The legendary chilli, rumoured to be packed with magical properties, they say it can improve your sex life, contains anti-biotics, oozes vitamin C and can stimulate the brain.
Who knows if it’s all true, we just like the taste!

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!

Hazy yellow, no head and some medium to flabby carbonation coming through. Not the most enticing looking beer. A vegetal smell that just starts warning bells going off. It has an aroma similar to a tequila beer that deserved every bilious sentence of the slating it received from a number of raters. Puffy carbonatin and a watery body with a thrust of chilli heat that assaults the palate. It is utterly one dimensional - all chilli heat and no body, no finess - all mouth and no trousers. Ihave no intention of proceeding beyond the first mouthful, the drain will be getting the rest.

No head. Slight chilli aromas. Low sweetness no bitters, mild to low carbonation. Chilli tastes artificial,

330ml bottle. BB 2015. Pours a pale straw colour and didn’t 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 it’s 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

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 weren’t 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, it’s just a hot yellow liquid, and because it’s liquid it reaches places of your throat that a regular chilli would never reach. This is a terrible beer, for shame Matso’s.

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. Matso’s - how dare you charge money for this rubbish.
