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.

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.

On tap at the NH Brewers fest. 4 oz served in a small glass poured a deep golden yellow color with a thinnish off white head.The aroma is obviously jalapeno as soon as I set my nose over the glass. There’s some sweet bready pilsner malt backing up the pepper, but it has a hard time finding a voice. The flavor is quite mild from what I expected from the aroma. The pepper is there up front but it is all flavor with very little heat. Mild bready and caramel malt sweetness provide a nice backdrop before the pepper flavor throws a mild lingering heat. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. This is a great beer, I went back for seconds, its a really nice pilsner and the jalapenos add an odd, but very flavorful component to the beer.

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.

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

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 it’s 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 don’t care for pilseners and I don’t care much for hot food, but the two together was terrific. The "heat" was just right. This is one interesting brew.

Slightly heavier body than expected, with a denser mouthfeel than many other pils. Pleasing carbonation. Great aroma of slightly roasted peppers, a bit of sweetness that followed through into the flavor. The pilsner profile definitely allowed the subdued roasted jalapeno to come through. The warmth was smooth and outlasted the finish. Excellent - much better than other chile-centered beers I have had. Great job! Want to thank Annette and Nicole for braving the heat to bring a keg out to the Farm-a-Q! This paired perfectly with the arrangement of smoked and grilled dishes!

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has jalapeño notes throughout. No real spicy notes in the taste. Kind of mild actually. Peppery and breads taste. It builds with each sip. I get some peanut butter, too. Crazy stuff. Medium body and medium 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.

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!

High heat but pretty well integrated. Other flavors still come through. Stands up well in the mouth.
