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.

Itís not pretty to look at but has a great taste. If you eat a lot of hot spicy food youíll enjoy it. Iíll say it reminds me of jarred salsa, in a very good way. Itís a "Must Add" to the party cooler. Appearance-wise, itís cloudy yellow with no real head, but serve it in the brown bottle and itís a party. My second biggest criticism is that the cap is green and everything else is blue; come on marketing dept - snap out of it. I will buy more of this to serve and take to parties -- for sure.

Appearance: pours with no head, it's a cloudy gold color Aroma: strong jalapeño, not so much the spicy side more of the outer shell smell Taste: jalapeño without spice, then the spice hits, pretty spicy without being unbearable, peppers, Palate: high carbonation, light body, leaves a spicy hot aftertaste Overall: while not painful I think it's a bit hot for a session beer, interesting and good, glad I tried it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light watery beer. Flavors of bell pepper, corn, mild malt. Mild spicy finish, almost peppercorn -like... I love chilies but this is not for me...

Novelty beer smell is fresh cut peppers, taste lingers in back of throat with a little burn.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Light amber pour with a huge white head that goes away very fast leaving the beer flat and still looking. Aroma is of wheat, weeds, and chiles. Flavor is a little acidic, but with wheat, and the heat from the chiles comes late. I could drink a few of these, but its more of a novelty.

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 (4066) - 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 Iím not sure itís something I have that much interest in drinking. Still, all kinds of credit for being unique.
