3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint at the brewpub. This is a cloudy light straw hue. This packs a punch of heat. Itís not crazy hot, but satisfyingly so. The actual pepper flavor is nice, but not as genuine as Billieís Chilis, my hallmark pepper brew. Still, the malts here donít interfere with the peppers and the chili flavor is quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub. Canít really tell if itís actually spicy or not because this enchilada is so hot. I think this extended burn in my mouth tells me it is. Pale golden with a lightly fruity aroma. Tight, dry body. I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Steamworks. Pretty habanero heavy. More chile in the nose than flavor. Pretty strong kick hits you in the back of the throat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewpub. Clear straw blonde, but the head lasts. Aroma is mild going in, with a burn in the back of the nose. Also some sweet blonde malts. Big chili flavor is assertively jalapeno, green chili. Dry but lingering. Not balanced, and not easy. But still one of the better chili beers Iíve had.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw colour. There is only a moderate aroma, and it is almost entirely of green chile. Hot on the palate, with lots of green chiles and not much balance. Nice burn going down. Not the best chile beer, but I can dig it in small quantities.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
i only ordered this on 7/17/10 because it was brewed with charred hatch chilis...
hazy honey color with white ring.
it smells like capsicum all they way!... secondly are caramel, honey, florals, cinnamon and citrus.
tastes like hatch chili jelly...mmm. well controlled heat doesnít dominate but it would be very easy to get heart burn from this!

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Their Chili beer is made 1 keg at a time and the base beer is different for each one, as well as the chilis being used are differect per each batch. The base for the one I had was a Pale Ale (donít remember which peppers though). Served with a slice of Lime. Poured a medium golden/amber color with a small sized head. Aromas of some peppers. The taste was all peppers. This one burned going all the way down...Iím talking a Cave Creek burn. I couldnít finish the sample size!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold hue, big chili nose, which is typical of most beers of this style. Mild chili presence overall, not offending like some (CCCB). A bit of a bite on the back of the tongue, and it sits somewhere between Rogue Mexicali and CCCB.
