This beer has an unmistakable roasted chili aroma and flavor without being too hot. The whole chili is used to infuse the beer with a mild green chili flavor and leaves you with just a hint of heat on the back end.

Brewed as Rio Grande Brewing Company, Moriarty, NM.

Bottle from Whole Foods-Indian School Plaza. From the get-go, a weak pour, pale golden and minimal head. Aroma of peppers. Stronger in aroma than in taste. Seems that some chilies were added to a pale lager. Nothing too special here, pepper aroma and taste, not even finishing well.

Another basically undrinkable chile beer. Very pale yellow, gross chile flavor. Sticks in the esophagus.

Bottle in WA. Clear yellow, small bubbles. Veggie note throughout. Not much spice. Clean. Balanced. Meh

12oz bottle pours out a crisp straw topped with white head. Nose is all green chilli and jalapeno peppers. Taste is corn grain and a touch of peppers on the end.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Bottle at Elvis’s house. Scared that WAM helped brew this. Overall nice with some lingering green chile spice; spicy not hot. Fine.

Pours a golden color with no head to speak of. Aroma of green chili, with a veggie sweetness. Taste of grren chili with a light malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body andquite smooth. Not a bad beer for what it is.

It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of green chilis, malt and some water. The taste was of green chilis, vegetables, water and some malts. Decent.

Despite the watery taste it still tastes better than bud light and it's aroma is wonderful. Hint of green chili in the taste still it's not a special beer for sure.

Clear gold pour no head. Strong fresh chilies aroma. Tastes like chilies, sugar, slight chocolate. Base beer has crappy budweiser flavor. Chili flavor elevates it quite a lot, but still eh...

Bottle:   Straw colored, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Peppers on the nose, green, red, yellow, orange, all bell peppers.   Soft peppers on the start, otherwise grassy.   Clean, soft pepper nose and flavor.   No real heat.   Not half bad, at least interesting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, soft bell pepper flavor profile with a touch of straw/hay and grass.   I like the fact that there is no heat.
