"Thanks" Skyview. Aroma of jalepeno with the flavor of green peppers. Undrinkable. Only a little heat, hardly any really.

I really enjoy spicy foods and chiles so my rating may reflect that. Hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Fresh sliced pepper in the aroma. Light pepper flavor and slightly hot.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with no head to speak of.
Smell: Roasted chili pepper, baby!
Taste: Pale maltiness with no apparent sweetness to obstruct the chili peppers delivering a roasty, vegetal taste and what could be considered a restrained bitterness. Same until the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Almost no carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s no Cave Creek Chili Beer and that’s definitely a good thing.

Pours very pale and light with not much carbonation. Very clear. No head. Smells of corn and not much chili. First taste is bitter then floral sweet with not too over the top chili.

Punished by BDR with this one. Yellow color with no head. Aroma smells like a freshly sliced green pepper. The taste would be akin to using a chile as a sucker. I will grant that the pepper spice and heat is quite well balanced with the malt and corn flavor. It doesn’t turn into a pint of Tobasco sauce.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A 12-oz bottle shared by BDR. Pours a clear straw blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates clean with a very thin bubble ring. Aroma of chili powder, some white salt, and bread malt. Taste is mostly chili pepper, light bodied with some red bell pepper and green vegetables. Finish has a light chili spice aftertaste that is not too strong. I would take the beer with a Mexican Tex/Mex dinner over the macro version beers.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this beer at GABF on 10/2/1999. Aroma has a faint pepper scent. Color is a light gold with good carbonation and head. Taste is light with a nice chile flavor and a good spicy bite in the after taste. This is a very good Chile Beer.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
The first sip actually burnt the back of my mouth a bit from the chile and after that the chile was so strong, I could barely keep it in my mouth. Now the question is what I am going to do with the other 5 bottles in my fridge. Not to mention the half full glass next to me that I won’t be able to finish.
P.S. If a green chile could take a piss, this is what would be in the toilet.

Great aroma if you are used to what the air smells like in the NM hatch valley in early fall. The beer starts out crips then the heat tickles your throat. Can only have 1 or 2 of these then move to smething else.
