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.

Earthy, robust pepper/vegetable aroma. Sits flat in the glass with minimal head. Taste is interesting... good back of the palate heat... pepper/vegetable taste dominates. Finish is hot, but not unreasonably so. Interesting concoction.

Great chile beer. Their regular Billy is 5 chile pepper types, this adds hatch pepper, and it is smoked. Three eights head on yellow body. Big taste. The slight smoke in the nose draws one in.Some malting to make it drinkable. Best ofthree decent chiles on tap today. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just a little bit flat in my lager glass, this beer delivers in he zesty department! You can smell clear peppers on the nose of this beer. On tasting, you get clear green and peppers coming forward boldly and clearly. Clear, pure beer in the background just lets the peppers dance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Location: 12oz bottle from Total Wine, 5/19/13

Aroma: The nose is pretty much a medly of peppers, almost like a garden salsa or something
Appearance: It pours an unclear yellow color with a tiny white head and almost no lace
Flavor: Peppers come through more spicy in the taste, with some malty and earthy undertones
Palate: This one is fairly light bodied, with average-plus carbonation, and a spicy, tingly finish
Overall Impression: Interesting and weird stuff, but this absolutely hits the mark for what was promised on the bottle. It makes me want to make/eat some sort of fresh veggie salsa, but I’m not sure it’s something I have that much interest in drinking. Still, all kinds of credit for being unique.

Dodgrblu (601) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento, big chile aroma and flavor. Not a mild beer; drinkable member of this niche genre. Burn on the the lips and tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This shit is awful. Do people actually derive pleasure from drinking this? I mean, I understand the whole adding chili peppers to strong beers to add complexity.depth/whatever... but this shit is close to undrinkable. If you’re the type of sick fuck that likes this shit... hey man... keep on rockin in the free world because brewers keep on making this trash for some reason.

jredmond (5292) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from Blipp. Pours a light golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is pepper and light malt. Mouthfeel is medium to light with essentially just straight chili pepper flavor. Although not as gruesomely horrific as the Ghost Face Killah, this is still not too drinkable, as say, some of Ballast Point’s pepper-treated beers.

wlajwl (3798) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Aroma is spices and green/red peppers. The flavor is green/red peppers and then intense spiciness all the way into the finish. Decent made but nowhere near the balance in flavor it needed to not make it pure spiciness.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle from Shep’s in St. Pete. Clear golden lager like pour with no head. Aroma is full of pepper spice, nothing else gets through. I like it. Flavors are just the same. Very chili forward yet this remained super drinkable. The heat in the finish just came and went after each sip. Didn’t linger, but I love chilies and spicy food. Nicely done.
