Wasnít sure what to expect here as this is my first chili beer but I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. Great chili aromas to start with and some amazing pepper flavors. Overall score dropped a bit as it was pretty watery and didnít leave me with anything but hot pepper mouth. Would love to try this one with some nachos.

Hardly a beer, aroma is spicy chiles, flavor is spicy chiles, palate is spicy chiles... Just painful to drink... Fun, but definitely a novelty type beer, would never drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

8 nov 2013, bottle. Yellow and a bit hazy. Nose is pure heat, green peppers. It's just hear. It doesn't taste like anything but hot green chiles and it's just heat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just smells of a light beer which lulls you into a false sense of security. Itís HOT! Makes lips tingle, but can taste the beer beneath the burn. Bit too hot to drink a lot of. (K)

Has a chilio pepper and lager pine aroma.Hazy golden color with a thin white head. The spiciness rolls from the front of the tongue then hits the back of the throat Definitely spicy. A little overriding. Not bad for a spicy ale.

This was absolutely terrible. It has ahoy and spicy aroma and flavor, but it is gross. I really donít understand these chile beers. It is the opposite of refreshing.

RedSox2004 (1137) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Clear orange yellow with minimal head and lace. Strong strong chili pepper/jalapenos with an intense burn going down. Pretty interesting, but not something Iíll be looking for.

Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. Low retention on the head. The aroma is first a little grain and then a lot of habanero/jalapeno pepper. The taste is HOT pepper all over the place. Drinking this 22 oz bottle will be challenging. Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. No doubt itís a chili pepper beer. It is warm.

marcus (6011) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from BevMo Folsom. Pours cloudy copper with a thin off-white head and a vegetable aroma. There is a light wheat flavor with a horrible extremely hot peppery finish. Donít drink this unless you want to ruin your taste buds.

Iíve been interested in trying this for while, but always end up passing it up, so today I decided to just get it. Poured from the bomber into an English pint. Color ranges from dark straw to orange. Fairly clear with little head. Aroma is sort of bready and slightly grainy with some chili notes. Flavor starts off mild and bready but the pepper flavors quickly start to come through and take over. Seems like a good mix of green jalapeŮos and serranos. Nice heat on the finish that provides a lingering warmth in the throat and stomach. This isnít ridiculously spicy, but if you donít enjoy peppers and spicy foods, youíre not going to like this. Light bodied and dare I say refreshing. This is certainly a unique beer, but I enjoyed the whole bomber, and I could see this really being a nice compliment to some Mexican food.

Draft at toronodo. Chili beer! Pours a hazy orange with 1 cm head. Aroma is fresh cut hatch and jalapeŮo chiliís. Taste is more aggressive heat and raw chili. More Serrano like. Leaves a definite chili and black olive taste. Lips are tingling. This is rad.
