A light lager spiced with cinnamon sticks and 5 different chili pepper varieties giving this lager its unique taste. Starts out with the cinnamon taste and the peppers give it a long lasting HOT lingering finish.

Well, I think they should have just stopped with the light lager. The cinnamon is readily noticeable, but combined with the chilies it is more of a red hot cinnamon than a nice apple pie kind of cinnamon. The beer is immeasurably thin, you can say what you like about the flavor, but this is just thin as hell. The appearance was even a watery light red with absolutely no head. The chilies soon invade every aspect of the flavor, and although I didn’t find it to be incredibly hot as the description suggests, I did notice a burning in my asophagus that just didn’t feel at all comfortable let alone enjoyable. This is an early attempt at a very very difficult beer variety, I hope they can get it right fast or else they may be pouring lots of this stuff out.

Pale golden colour, no head, chilli and cinnamon. Flavour is strange, no real malt or hops to speak of, you get cinnamon up front, then the chilli flavour and a bit of heat. Heat is not very aggressive, but it’s the cinnamon that really throws you here. Weird, not bad, just really weird.

Hazy golden amber. Full green chile aroma, with loads of cinnamon. Light heat, but flavour a mix of spice, vegetal notes, and only a hint of background malt. Balanced, but with all the cinnamon and chile it’s an odd duck.
