COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-bodied ale has an amazing chili aroma that jumps out at you. We infuse this beer with fresh Serrano, Habenero, Jalapeno, Anaheim, and Fresno chili peppers. Surprisingly, the chili flavor is strong but not overpowering and comes through without lending too much heat. Billyís Chilies is a very drinkable beer and pairs perfectly with chicken, steak and especially tacos. It finishes dry with a spiciness that will leave you thirsty for more.

Very light bell pepper and jalapeno aromas. Pours clear and yellow, and clear, no sign of head. The flavor is very clean and smooth, a light heat in the back of the palate. Flavors of peppers and spice. The palate is clean and smooth. Would be best paired with food, not drank alone. But overall one of the better chili beers Iíve had.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet with spicy chili peppers mixed in. Flavor starts sweet and then the chili shows up with lots of spice and heat. Very one dimensional, but one is enjoyable.

Bottle. A pale orange in the glass, lightly hazy, with a small head and not much retention. Nose is vegetal - like green bell peppers, if you ask me - and a little chili heat. Flavor mostly just hot, with more of the chili (vegetable) flavors and a little malt sweetness. Certainly the best chili beer Iíve had, but itís a little one-dimensional. I thought Iíd want to drink a full bottle, but itís seeming less likely now. If I had some tacos to go with it, I have a feeling Iíd be enjoying it much more.

Clear dark gold color/ white foam. Big fresh sliced chili pepper aromas. light bodied. Nice vegetal, burning pepper juice flavors on a solid pale malt base, hot pepper burn to finish. good.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2010 Incredible chili aroma! The smell of peppers dominates. My mouth is watering already. An orange-yellow color, its head does not last long. The flavor is pepper with supporting malt sweetness. Delicious! Not hot at all. This beer is all about the flavor of chilies, not their heat. Hops? Hops are a distant after thought and nothing this beer needs. The chili flavor takes the place of hops. The chili flavor is well done and is very satisfying. Iím a fan of chili beers, I have judged more home brewed examples than I can count, and this is by far the best one Iíve ever had. To capture the flavor and aroma of these chilies and have it as drinkable as it is is a real accomplishment.

Bottle, clear gold, fading white head. Vegital, peppery, earthy, mole, sliced serrano. A bit of heat, pepper, burn, vegital. Bit of pepper spray in the throat. Fizzy, thin.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2010
The subtle malt flavors of this beer compliment the strong but pleasant hot chili flavors and spices, The hops flavors are almost non-existent, but that works pretty well as the chilis do a good job of counteracting the sweetness of the malts.

degbert (1660) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2010
Poured from bottle. Um. OK, I can figure this out, give me a moment. Nose smells like pepperoncinis or canned jalapenos. Color is goldish with a foamy head and some lace. Flavor -- I can tell the peppers are there, they kick in with a pronounced green, grassy heat. What I canít really taste is the beer; I think that this needed more roasted malt and more hops to counter-balance the salsa verde overtones. Noble try, but I have to consider it a novelty at best.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, small particulate filled, yellow body with a thin, off-white head that dissipates immediately and leaves virtually no lacing. Aroma is pretty cool. Lots of red pepper, jalapeno, and other chile peppers. I get some lime hops in there too with some corn salsa and pale malts. Flavor is more the same. Lots of lime salsa and spicy peppers. Some very thin wheats and pale malts before this finishes with a moderate, pleasant heat that leaves a medium length aftertaste. The body was very watery and thin with no carbonation. Overall, a nice smelling and tasty beer. The peppers are distinct and hot, but not too hot like some chile beers. Now...if the appearance didnít resemble a dehydrated drunkís piss and the body was anything but watery, this would be a great beer. Oh well...

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with almost no head.

Aroma: Jalapeno potato chips.

Taste: Jalapeno potato chips with subtle heat.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, scratches the back of my throat.

Overall: Fun, ten times better than Cave Creek, but still nothing you would want more than a sip of for giggles.
