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.

Draft. An unclear golden beer with a medium light orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chili, that tears in the nose. The flavor is sweet malty with a nice medium strong chili note - not too much, but it still leaves a slight chili burn on the palate and tongue.

Bottle at the Great Charlotte green chili food and drink orgy. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma of chili flesh and black pepper. Taste is steady heat, light body. Nice aroma, but one-sided flavor.

(Bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of warm roasted mixed pepper salsa that makes me hungry for some chips and salsa. Flavor is lightly sweet with corn, wheat, and light mixed chilly peppers. The finish provides a slight burn, although expected much more pepper flavor after the potent nose.

(12oz bottle, thanks acrdz) Medium white head atop clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, sweet and spicy chili pepper. Taste is medium sweet, juicy chili peppers, "hot" but not overpowering. Light-medium body. A tasty fulfillment of what the label promises.

Bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Pours darkish gold with a rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is strongly chilie. Med body.foamy carbonation. Flavor is maybe a little malt, but mostly some tasty chilie. Pretty darn good.

on tap-pours a white head and hazy yellow color. Aroma is chile. Taste is chile with heat, wheat. A bit more heat than the other two I’ve had in Colorado (Shamrock and Steamworks), interesting. OK carbonation.

Bomber pored a hazy greenish yellow with a small quickly dissapating white head. Aromas of chilies nothing else, what did you expect? Palate was light bodied and warming. Flavors of sweet chili pepper followed by a mellow heat with a lingering warming finish. One of the best chilie beers I’ve had.

Tap. As this was my first chile beer, I did not know what to expect. Bob said that he uses 4 different peppers, seeded, and added to the remnants of one of his other beers to produce this. Pours pale gold with no head. Pepper aroma, spicy. Spicy smoked pepper flavor. Light bodied and watery.

Tap @ brewery. Slightly hazy, light golden appearance with a white head. Chile Relleno, mildly roasty, pepper, pale malty aroma. Mildly roasty, green chili pepper, pale malty flavor that’s really bland except for the peppers.

Mar, should I say thanks or F#@% you! Gold pour. Aroma is all green jalapeno, green pepper and those diced green chilies from a can. Flavor is the exact same as the aroma. Burns the throat a little. Why the fuck do people make spicy beers? What the hell?
