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.

Man do I hate chili beers. Don’t know why I even gave this a chance. Tastes just like a jalapeno pepper; has a late spiciness. This is not a flavor I like in beers and I will never seek it again. I don’t know how people like these kind of beers..........

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.

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!

Holy hell this beer is a piece of crap. It smells like Tobasco sauce and cardboard and is full of gross yeast chunks and garbage. It tastes better than it smells but that is a different things than it tasting good. It’s not too hot and some slight sweetness brings out the fruitiness of the peppers. There chili pepper beers now that take the idea beyond a novelty these days so I just can’t see the need for something that tastes like a bland blond ale with peepers added wily nilly.

Sample at Kurtkeller 018: Tequila-aged and Let’s Agree to Ruin Our Evening with Pepper beers-tastic 01 on 11/04/2014. Hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Chili peppers and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with a fairly strong jalapeno character and some biscuit malt behind it. The finish is spicy with a peppery aftertaste. Middling one-note beer overall.

Where’s a murky golden color with vegetable matter floating throughout. A short white head forms and retains fairly well. Hey huge fresh chili nose is noted. Medium bodied with sufficient burn on the back of the throat from the chilies. A bit of butter in the flavor but dominated by fresh chilies. My wife said I should have saved it for the chili we’re having tomorrow night.

Bottle. Yellow brown with a huge off white head and floating particles. Fresh jalapenos, vegetal, wheat and more peppers. Flavor has an initial green stemmy flavor and then opens straight up to peppery heat. This is reminiscent of their ghost face killah in that it is very spicy to the point that you almost want another beverage just to wash it down.

12 oz bottle. (Bruisin Ales) Asheville, NC.
Hazy golden colour with a bubbling white head which disappears very quickly. Chilies... chilies and... chilies in the aroma. Actually there’s some toffee sweetness behind the chili aroma. The flavour is first beer and then just burning chili... it burns.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2015 Initially rated 10/16/2014......fixed typo in 2015....... Abundance of chilies. Not hot, but very peppery. Too much pepper by itself, this really needs to be eaten with chili. Well done for a gimmick.
