Aroma is a rich green chili. An expert could tell you where and the day it was picked itís 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.

12oz bottle opens with a whimper and pours out clear deep gold with almost no head. The aroma offers up lots of chili pepper meat with just hints of beer like notes. The taste is similar with firm levels of chili pepper meat and only mild bits of capsicum heat. The chili pepper lingers for just a moment or two when the taste just recedes away. Cool brew where the ďbeerĒ notes are at just noticeable levels but the chili pepper is delivered with lots a great aroma and flavor. Solid crisp summer time brew.

On tap at the ABQ brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of crackery malt and a hint of green chile. Flavor of crackery malt with green chile and salsa notes in the finish. Light heat, very tasty. Very drinkable for a chile beer, the heat is on the mild side. Good stuff. 7/4/7/4/15 [3.7/5]

Thanks Casey, i still think you should have taken off the label before sharing with the group .. . Pours a deep yellow, sparse foam .. . aroma of jalapeno and bell peppers, with a touch of corn .. . flavour is the same as the nose, no real heat .. . i actually really liked this, and i donít really care for chilli beers, would go nicely with fajitas .. . Brace yourselves gentlemen. According to the gas chromatograph, the secret ingredient isÖ Love!? Whoís been screwing with this thing?

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.

Crushed at GABF í10. Decent chili aroma and flavor. Some good heat in it, but itís pretty unspectacular. This is no Ghost Face Killah, but itís aight.

Cloudy yellow with white head and lace. Pepper dominates the aroma. Chilli or Bell pepper flavor. Not as hot as I had hoped. Medium to light bodied very fizzy not much but not bad.

I really have no idea what Iím getting into with this beer. Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo and I picked up what I initially thought would be your basic Mexican Lager (Cerveza is Spansih, after all). But a closer inspection of the label informs me that this is a berr with green chili flavor. No other pertinent information is available, which means no ABV, etc. Let me just say that Iíve had my share of chili beers that Iíve liked (Rogue Chipotle, Weston Labs #2, Flat Branch Green Chili, etc.), but more often than not theyíre revolting (Cave Creek Chili Beer). Letís see what this guy has to say. Pours a light straw thatís crystal clear, with a big foamy head that dies as quickly as it begins. So far so good. It looks like beer. First aroma is stale green chili and not much else. First taste is weird. Thereís this very metallic and mineral aftertaste and not much else, except maybe a little bit of chili heat (nothing overwhelming) at the end. Second taste yields a bit more flavor, as both the beer character and the green chile flavor are finessed. Iím glad this thing isnít the palate destroyer that I had feared when first opening the bottle, but Iím also a bit disappointed that itís not a bit more substantial. This beer would be killer with some nice pork tacos or other spicy Mexican food. On itís own itís a little bit of a let down.

12oz bottle-pours an off white head and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is chile, secondary grain. Taste is chile, secondary sweet grain/light malt. At front of palate, slight initial warming, none at back end. OK carbonation. Smooth.
