On cask @ The Bruery. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Nose is spicy chili pepper but also a nice fruitiness. Earthy pepper, some grapefruit, and a hint of pineapple. Flavor is bready and sweet up front with a spicy finish. Lots of chili, some grapefruit, orange, and a touch of tropical fruit. Okay, but couldn’t drink much of this. Not as spicy as expected.

Short: A surprisingly drinkable chili golden ale

Origin: Cask at The Bruery Size: 4oz taster Glass: PET cup Price: <$1 Date: 1/11/14
Long: Thank you brokensail for the pour. Low foam atop clear golden. Ring of white bubbles. Nose is pepper vegetal, waxy pepper skin, pretty intense. Taste has bread rolls, base beer backbone with an aggressive chili pepper heat piling on that then dissipates amongst buttery biscuit. Flashes of pineapple hops from the base beer. Overall there are flavors of coconut curry once it melds. Fairly successful.
Flaws: Lower carbonation, slight butteriness probably helps cut the spice
Skill Level: Higher than Ghost Face Killah

Cask pour from at the Bruery. Pours a hazy light glowing yellow with no head. Aroma is minimal at first but as it warms there is a definite chili fruit aroma going on with some slight hop. Taste is a very thin mouthfeel, VERY thin, with some definite heat but nothing else really going on. As it warms the chili flavor comes out ever so slightly. One of the spiciest beers I’ve had though.
