COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our pilsner and "dry-hopped" it with roasted jalapenos. The result is a well balanced beer with a very intoxicating peppery-type aroma, great jalapeno flavor, and just a bit of lingering heat.

Sampled at the NH Brewfest. In addition to loving craft beer, I am also a pepper-head and love spicy foods. This beer was not your classic beer... mostly because it did not have that much heat, but I really like the Jalapeno flavor and aroma

GABF. Yellow pour, white head. Flavors remind me a lot of a jalapeno cornbread. Light hops on the finish, some corn and the spice from the peppers.

The beer pours and oranging gold with a little head of medium sized, white bubbles. The head leaves a lacing of aghklgasdhlkasdghl. In body the beer is slightly hazy, though clean and free of particles, and is full of lazy bubbles working their way to the head. On the nose, the beer smells clean and peppery, like the flesh of a jalapeno fresh out of the garden. Light bready malts also appear lightly in the nose. On the tongue, the beer tastes spicy and softly sweet with light touches of acidity on the sides of the cheeks. In flavor the beer tastes of fresh jalapeno, spicy and fleshy with light vegetal skin notes that are beautiful on the tongue. Light, cracker malt can also be felt as a cream on the sides of the taste, balancing and cooling the spicy flavors. The finish brings the largest touch of bready malt, but the jalapeno flavors return in the aftertaste and give a nice lingering spice to the mouth alongside a slight plastic flavor. In the mouth, the beer feels on the light side of medium in body with a light jelling on the tongue. Carbonation is softer, but bites at the beginning of the sip. After the beer leaves the mouth is left wet with spice and acid canceling saliva. Overall this beer is refreshingly unique, with some awesome pepper flavors that would do amazingly with food. The spicy flavor actually dies off as you drink more of it, which is too bad, but overall this is one of, if not my favorite pepper beer with some great, fleshy, pepper flavors. A beer to try for sure.

Thanks Beerandblues2 for this! Yellow colored, clear pour. Aroma has touch of jalepenos to it, light malts. Flavor is a nice spicy note, with some notes of heat on the finish. Pretty good!

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy pale gold with a small, creamy white head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is jalapenos, Pils and corn with spicy Noble hops. Flavor is Pils malt, medium hops and bitterness with spicy jalapenos and a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

Bottle courtesy of Beerandblies2, thank you sir! Hazy yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of green pepper flesh, straw. Taste is clean and crisp with mild to moderate heat throughout and some pepper flavor shining through. Not bad.

Several 4 oz samples at the source during the release party for this beer. Pours a deep gold with a thin white cap. Ok, so itís not a sexy looking brew. Aroma is strong jalapeno pepper which overwhelms the grains. Jalapeno follows through into the taste with a lingering heat. Thin, but "hot" palate with a lingering heat that is still present several beers later. I donít care for pilseners and I donít care much for hot food, but the two together was terrific. The "heat" was just right. This is one interesting brew.

Hazy straw pour. Spicy aroma, with very nice spicy flavor! Mouthfeel was spicy and sharp. Nice! Long lasting spiciness was great.

Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Light peppers, toast on the nose. Nice spicy peppers with a touch of smoke. Lingering heat, never horrible, just a nice slow burn. Very well done, long lingering heat.

22 oz poured a hazy dark yellow into a pilsner glass. Huge aroma of pepper and pickle juice. Thereís something sweet & flowery there in the background, but canít put my finger on it. Less than medium body, a bit watery. Malty & bready up front, but only for a split second as the jalepeno takes over. Not overpowering at all, lingers into a nice heat down the throat. I enjoy the baseline Bohemian Pilsner, so I find this a tasty version with some great flavor, not necessarily all heat.
