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. Billy’s 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.

Pours slightly hazy golden blonde with very little head that dissipates completely after a few seconds. Aroma is sharp of fresh chopped hot peppers. Taste hits right away with hard spice and average beer underneath. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy apricot yellow with some tiny bits of sediment and almost a finger of off-white head that doesn’t last. Light carbonation flowing up the glass. Aromas of hot peppers mainly, light citrus. Tasting notes of spicy peppers, lemon and orange citrus. Medium-light body with a semi-dry slightly spicy finish and light heat that lingers in the throat. Nowhere near as hot and spicy as Ghostface Killah.

Pours an orange hazy gold. Big roasted pepper aroma. Taste is clean malt with big roasted pepper taste. Good stuff.

12oz bottle from Crossroads. Damn this is hot, do these guys make real beer or just novelty heat seekers?? This one poured a very light honey amber bodr body with a larger foamy off white head that had average lasting power. Aroma was fresh peppers, grains, sweeter honey topped breads, corn and dry grass. Body seems to be medium but with this heat it’s a bit hard to tell as everything is rather hot. Flavor is the same as the aroma, with a touch more pepper heat, and more ligering pepper hottness. This is good but hotttttt.

Bottle, twist-off crown. I approach this as a fan of their Ghost Face, though that position may end up hurting me if I underestimate this as a little brother. Nothing but earthy, green, really organic and vegetal peppers in the nose, lightly smoky and inviting, but the latter really only as a food source. Pours clear pale yellow with average carbonation and a fizzy white head that’s short-lived. Light body but not watery, the swirl of the first sip in the mouth doesn’t make an impression, but the really flavorful and immediate mild burn in the throat certainly does. Again, green and earthy, lots of rich little wrinkles and flavor developments, the blend of peppers seems expertly chosen and is really the strength of this beer. Even has a clean, bready finish! Calm, simple mf, not nearly as oily as I expected, but the base beer does what it’s supposed to do, support and then get out of the way. I love the balance here despite the growing strength of the heat with accumulated volume, and despite warnings I think I could drink several bottles of this in an evening, and without going slowly. They really dialed the levels in perfectly, just nailed it. Fresh and delicious!

Bottle. Mostly clear yellow-orange pour with minimal head. Warm peppers on the aroma and taste - too bad I hate that in a beer. Pretty spicy, especially late. Not my thing.

I can’t think of a single instance in which I would crave this beer or actively seek it out. Yet, there is a certain novelty to having one. This beer is spicy, but it isn’t punishing. Once upon a time, I would have recommended this beer as a just-for-the-hell-of-it option. Lately, though, better, tastier Chili beers have become more commonplace. Drink one of those, instead.

Pours a nice light golden ale color. Smells of strong pepper aromas! Not a lot of hop or malt notes. Taste is pretty hot! The only way I can describe it is if you chewed on a jalapeño, the took a taste of an ordinary ale. Overall, not too impressed with this beer. I think it could have been done better, and had more balance and flavors going for it.

Bottle. Dark yellow pour with a light cream head. The aroma is ver spicy, sharp and very heavy on the peppers. The taste is a mix of all the chilies; over powers the rest of the beer. Overall a spicy beverage, not really drinkable. It's not too spicy, it's just doesn't work.
