Danish: Dybrød og med en god portion røde chilier i bagagen er vores Red Hot Chili Ale en ganske flamboyant øl. Den krydrede smag af chili og Cascade humle efterfølges af en markant skarp eftersmag. Et godt supplement til milde retter baseret på kartofler eller fløde

Aroma of soap! The flavor is malty with a bit of chili burn, no soap to be found here :-)

Bottled. Reddish amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is at first quite nicely malty and floral, but very soon gets a quite strong spiciness to it. The flavour works rather similar, leaving a quite heavy burn as an aftertaste. Probably this would be better to drink with some snacks, instead of just on it’s own.

Marduk (3318) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2014
330ml bottle. Deep red, copper color. Small size, white head, stays. Sweet malts and hidden spicy peppers in aroma. Sweet, malty, caramels in taste. Takes some time for chilli heat to pop out, but when it does it dominates the aftertaste brilliantly. Bit hard to drink, takes time to get used to it.

500ml bottle (Kultura, Kaunas) as "Svaneke Chili Ale"
Smells like a typical simple dark ale, sweet caramelly malts, but hints of beaniness. Nice caramelly body, sweet, like a dark lager. Very full and smooth palate. Finish malty and caramelly, but the late finish is brilliantly subtle chili - it takes 2 minutes for it to really dominate. Nicely done!

Flaska från Värdshuset Fjätervålen. Jag gillar denna. Helt Ok med chillispetsad öl. Kvarvarande beska tar över i slutet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Half litre bottle brought home from Fish&Beer, Amager. Creamy sand-colored head. Clear reddish-amber body. Nice chili nose. You can smell it without being burned and/or numbed. Initial taste is genuine chili flavor, very nice. Then some dryish toasted malts, and a decent bitterness. And no it’s time for the chili burn. Hot! Thank you, no more beers for me tonight, they will all be chilied. A pretty nice spiced beer, by the way.

Handpump at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg
Cloudy red-amber color with generous creamy head. Aroma of red jam, wet malt, a bit earthy. Smooth but rather anonymous ale, with raw malt sweetish flavor, and moderate chili hotness; normal bitterness.
Could be interesting with spicy food, besides that, it was not necessary.

330 ml bottle at Fox and Hounds, Åbenrå. Beautiful, clear, reddish body with a nice off-white head. A bit unusually but nice and interesting aroma, some kind of caramel malt, ripe fruit and berries and hint of marmalade. Flavor is sweet malty, some caramel, ripe fruit and balanced bitterness with light chilly notes appearing rather late after the other flavors. Fine balanced body and nice aftertaste with malt, fruit and just a bit more obvious hot chili. Taste, a bit unusually and definitively not overdoing the chilly flavor kind of beer. Accepting the chilly just as a light spice to the rest this is a fine and pleasant beer.

Lilja (1902) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2013
På fat. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, honung med en tydlig beska med smak av peppar och chili. Lätt kropp, lång och kraftig eftersmak. Ett öl som är vad det utger sig att vara. Vet dock inte om jag gillar det. Hade varit lättare om det var en Porter eller Stout.
