3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear, bright golden color with a small white head and a few floaties that settled to the bottom of the glass. The head dissipated pretty quick. Lacing is faint and short lived. Very light carbonation. Aroma is canned green chilies. Flavor is light green chilies and very lightly sweetened malt. There is no heat to this beer compared to Cave Creek Chili Beer. Light to medium body. I couldn’t find anything unpleasant about this beer. I don’t know what everyone is crying about. This is a decent CHILI BEER. It would be great for cooking. Drink it for what it is.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden with no head and very little lacing. The chile aroma predominates, masking other potential notes. Taste is more like chile pepper juice without the heat than beer. Fizzy on the palate.

12 oz. brown bottle. A very clear golden beer with almost no head. The aroma is lightly bready and slightly sour. The taste has just enough chili to notice with a decent amount of heat.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Liz. Pours gold with a white head. Medium chile aroma. Rather thin body. Flavor is a bit bready, and then there’s chile. Ok SHV beer. I could stand a bit more chile, but it tends to accumlate with time.

Tasted then chugged on ratebeer chat. Pours a light golden with a small white head. Aroma is green chilis, malt and water. Flavor is green chili, vegetables, water and malt. Hot, slightly sick, and malty. Not as much heat as cave creek, but still pretty gnarly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2010 Sampled at GABF 2010. Aroma of spicy peppers and beer. Strong chile hit in the flavor combined with some spice and some heat. Pretty interesting to try because this is a pretty strong pepper presence. Felt this in the mouth for a while. Still pretty good, if you’re into spicy things.
