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.

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.

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

Unique but pretty "unbeer" like. The pepper flavor really stands out in the aroma & certainly in the taste! It kind of burns going down & leaves a pretty strong aftertaste. I appreciate the originality here!

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.

Had this one on tap while on vacation in Boulder. Poured a syrupy yellow that was not hazy, and had a head that disappeared into a halo in little time. Smelled of candied chilies. Almost like what I imagine a chili air freshener smelling like. Tasted extremely syrupy and heavy on just chili. Its a one note powerhouse of chilies and nothing else. Actually fun for the first sip, but then it just gets to be overkill. Actually very hot in your throat form the chilis, and spicy food doesnt faze me. It would be fun in 4oz servings, but just diarrhea fodder in larger servings.

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a orange/gold with small white fizzy head. Aroma does jump up at you, faint smoke, mixed chillies. Flavor has a hint of ehat to it and flavor of smoked chillies. Thank God this wasn’t a re-creation of Cave Creek. Would go great with some quesadilla’s and tacos. Actually tastes like food.

Bottle. A pale orange in the glass, lightly hazy, with a small head and not much retention. Nose is vegetal - like green bell peppers, if you ask me - and a little chili heat. Flavor mostly just hot, with more of the chili (vegetable) flavors and a little malt sweetness. Certainly the best chili beer I’ve had, but it’s a little one-dimensional. I thought I’d want to drink a full bottle, but it’s seeming less likely now. If I had some tacos to go with it, I have a feeling I’d be enjoying it much more.
