I had my reservations about this particularly brew. At a Specs in Austin a person who worked at No Label told me to give it a whirl. It’s a brew you either like or don’t. And I like that. It’s different and unique. It is like an ale with a spicy wash down. It seems like a brew fitted for tacos or a bistec. I like where the brewer was going with this. It is a brew that exists outside the box.

Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread and jalapenos. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a warming finish. Flavors of bread and jalapewnos with a crisp warming lingering jalapeno finish.

Niche beer. Just drink it for the novelty. Taste isn’t overly spicy, but still gets a lot of the jalapeÃ±o roasty flavor. It does start to burn after a pint or so.

Tom a bottle, shower beer.. Aroma is sweet malt and jalapeño. Taste is the same, not too spicy, makes me want a taco. Cool

12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun. Wonderful amber pour into a perfect pint glass. Aroma of malt and light jalapeño with a little bit of smoke. Lots of jalapeño bite upfront which lingers into a nicely heated finish. Smoke is still evident throughout. Nicely done, not overwhelming at all.

Bottle from trade with Crajun. Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with almost no head. Aroma is mostly jalapenos, a little bit of toast too. Really it smells like nachos, I feel like I’m at the ball park. Taste is just dominated by jalapenos and I kinda like it. Nothing here to balance it out at all. No heat at first but then it creeps up a few seconds after swallowing. Thin body, slightly odd, fizzy, and watery mouthfeel. Overall, I really did enjoy sipping on this even though its basically just liquid jalapenos.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
The smell was absent in what was a delish looking deep red, with a darkness sitting underneath a heavily poored light tan finger and a half head.
At first I am excited about a local pepper brew (I have dabbled brewing some spice beers) and the first sip gives me a smile, but then I realize I am alone on the expedition and now have to finish a heavily spiced beer that is missing a good body behind it.
Needless to say I finished the fresh 12oz bottle that came straight to my glass from private sources unknow, but a little heavy on the spice and lacking on the beer.
Worth drinking to support local brew. But share with a friend.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange in color with a small white head. Fairly spicy aroma. Kind of like jalapeno infused soda water. A bit of rubber, maybe some fruit, grass, and light bread. The flavor is spicy and jalapeno forward. Water, mild bread sweetness, and some grass. Kind of thin on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Surprise! The smell of jalapeño peppers is dominate. Hints of biscut are also present. A hazy orange-amber with a rapidly dissapating white head and no lacing. The taste is green pepper, jalapeño pepper, with grainy notes. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, while not a big fan of "pepper" beers, this one is well done - more taste than burn.
