3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1302 25.10.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg. Pours a golden yellow with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is cascadey-citrusy hops and still roasting peppers. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped, mild sweetness and the smokiness/heat from the serrano pepper lingers into the finish, but is not unpleasant. Predictably spicy and delicious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oops. Date on the bottle is 10/20/14. This kind of hid away from me for a while. Still. Ale color is more brown than amber, with a steady brownish head on top. Peppers are still there in the nose, though sometimes there’s a whiff of vinegar. But not with every sniff. And there’s quite a bit of sludge in the bottom of the bottle I should not have poured until the end. Still, my judgement on chile beers is based on how well it burns while letting a bit of cooling malt in, and this one does it pretty well. Burn gets more intense the further into the beer I go. so this one is indeed for chile heads only.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. I think I probably rated this in my book but have yet to upload it. Unfiltered brown body. Steady respectable off-white head. Floaties. Has a nice juicy pepper tones, mild heat, but even more flavor. The juicy pepper perfectly complements the amber malt. Lingering heat. Really enjoyable beer, well done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
659 ml bottle. Pours a muddy amber with little head. Light aromas of wet malts and roasted pepper. Flavors of dry roasted peppers and sweet malts with a moderate afterburn. Very simple but ok for what it is.

bottle from Bierpost. My bad - I thought about Serrano ham, not peppers - not my cup of tea. This amber beer really is spicy, peppery and fiery.

Bottle to tulip
I love peppers and love beer. Usually, when I love two things, I really don’t appreciate when they’re combined. And most experiences I’ve had with peppers and beer have been failures. Sadly, I keep trying.
Aroma of chili, banana pepper, a touch of vinegar, and a light skunkiness lurking behind. Clear amber with a thin creamy off white head that has a little bit of a mottled look. Taste is, well, not disgusting, but nothing here that blows me away. It’s peppery, serrano, sure, it could be, nice malts, some bitterness. I’ll drink this, but I won’t be coming back.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average, frothy, collapsing, off-white head. Peppery aroma, green chili, green pepper, covers everything else possibly existent underneath. Taste is initially surprisingly mild peppery, accumulating spiciness and hotness of course, quite well incorporated into a caramel malty body; fruity hoppy overtones contribute to a more harmonious overall result. Not bad, but objectively all dependent on your pepper attitude. "[P]erfect for food paring"? I’d doubt that. But very appetisingly. I feel it.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent weak brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and not much to speak of. The very hot mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hot pepper spicy aftertaste. The hot flavor contained notes of strong pepper and was mildly vinous. Not one that I would likely buy again.
