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 at the brewery. Bloody Mary mix added. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Tastes like spicy pepper, celery seed, pickle juice, tomato, and pale malts. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like celery salt, pickle juice, tomato, pale malts, and a peppery spice.

Draft pour at the Colorado Plus Pub. Rating from my notes. Pours a cloudy peach yellow color with a patchy oily head. Wonderful spicy pepper aroma. I honestly believe I can detect all 5 peppers here. It’s officially a 5 alarm beer, and I love it. Mild pepper up front with a slow transition to a spice finish. Very well done. I love pepper beers. I can’t help it. Nice sweeter balance to this. Loved it.

Pours pale hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has meaty peppers that seem quite heavy on the serranos and some pale malt hiding underneath the pepper aspect - nice for what its trying to do. It has a medium / light body with a bit of crispness and mild carbonation. The flavor is mainly peppers, but it is not overly aggressive or spicy, it has a lot of the pepper flesh to it. The is a bit of the pale malt going on and a veggie/corn sort of flavor, but I’m guessing that is actually an aspect of the peppers used. Don’t think I’d want to drink a bunch in one sitting, but one bottle is pretty nice if you like a bit of spicy bite in a beer from time to time.

If you ever wanted a beer that smells and tastes like a fresh jalapeño, then look no further. Billy’s Chilies managed to really hit the nail on the head with this off-beat beer. I wish it were a bit spicier, but it is otherwise everything I hoped it would be. It is a little bit of a reversal having one of these with mild food rather than a generic beer with some spicy food. It is absolutely worth trying at least once, and I will be looking to keep some in my collection, but I’m sure it is not for everyone...as evidenced by the average rating.

This is not an every day beer, gives a real chilli kick in the aroma and flavour. For small doses only

Clear golden pour with strange floating sediment. Aroma is peppery to say the least. It burns your nose. If I had to pick a particular pepper from the flavor profile it would be Habanero. It all blends together after a few seconds. Not as hot as an actual habanero but it sure as heck burns going down. I wish I would have had it with tacos or a Mexican dish. Points for originality. If you drank a sixer of this you will probably get an ulcer.
