1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
What were these guys thinking? I love green chili, but not in my beer, man. This is how I imagine Comet tastes.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light color, ugly aroma (dusty, dirty). I had this against the Cave Creek and the Serrano Pepper Ale and this was the worst profile of the three--the aroma and flavor was more offensive to a non-chili-popper like me. I'm glad some people like this--I found it revolting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
aroma of jalapeno, reminded me of CCCB, but not as offensive. The thing I liked most about it is that the brewmaster decided NOT to put a jalapeno pepper in every beer. SHouldnt this be in the veg/herb/spice category?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ok, this was for me an oddly dichotomous beer. On the one hand, I could tell there was some quality here. The actual beer underneath the chile would have been boring. Not much body or flavor, but the chile flavor is legit and actually meshes well with the beer. Still something about it doesn't sit well with me and I couldn't finish it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Being from Arizona, where ’Everything is available with ’Salza’, ’Chilies’ are a mainstay of many meals, this should be a ’Hoot’. Clear gold in color, minimal white head some lace. Nose, the ’archetypal green chili’ aroma. Front is slightly sweet, the top thin, the finish is dry, lightly acidic, some hops, ’Peppery’, spicy, sure the hell different. Actually drinkable, unlike the the Arizona version Ed’s Chili Beer, can’t remember if I rated it here, but will pick up a bottle and compare.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a rich green chili. An expert could tell you where and the day it was picked it’s so bright and detailed. Headless clear golden SPN 2.7 or so. Light wheatish flavors, a bit piquant, light sweet malt, honts of honey. Delish.
