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.

12oz bottle in a taster. Pours light golden with a small head. Aroma of pale malts, chile, and light dough. Flavor the same. Light texture. Not the best beer, but better than a lot of peppered pale lagers.

Enjoyed at the Pink Taco in Vegas. Pours a slight hazy, light golden colour with a fizzy head that disappears quickly, leaving no lacing. Grainy sweet nose with honey notes. The taste is not as sweet though, and finishes very quickly with hints of tequila agave, in the aftertaste. Overall, watered-down and not sure where this one trying to head for.

Bottle at twin peaks in Vegas. I detect very little heat. No head no lacing. No aroma. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Slightly hazy pale yellow color, white head. Aroma of chili flesh. Taste is light straw, cardboard, and slight zing at the finish.

Just not a big fan of the taste of this beer. The chile flavor doesn’t really come through or it is coming through but it is messing with the cerveza flavor to create it’s own not so palatable taste.

Pale yellow. No head. The chilli character is the only redeeming quality of this beer in aroma, flavor, and palate. The chilli isnt too assertive, just enough to be meaningful without taking over. Every other quality is unpleasant. Corn.. dumped some of this and I NEVER waste beer...

12 ounce bottle at a sharing. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of chilis and malt. Taste is chilis, malt, and corn. Ugh.

Draft at the pub at ABQ. Pours a clear golden color with a light, green hue. No head at all. Light, malty aroma with some grass notes and a hint of chile. Light malty taste. Nothing much except for the very faint aftertaste of chile. Interesting, but not terrible.

A - Pours a golden pale color with a thin white head that vanishes quickly. S - Pickled green chiles, mild grain, savory aromas. T - Follows the nose but more of a sweeter red chile, bits of muted vinegar, no heat, mild hops in the background. M - Moderate foamy carbonation, light bodied. Very interesting flavors. This would go great with chips and salsa. Serving type: bottle 07-30-2011
