COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This extra hoppy Pilsner has a jalapeno aroma, a mild jalapeno flavor, and leaves you with pleasant warmth in the back of your throat. At 6.5% alcohol by volume Fuego is strong yet still crisp and refreshing. Most chili beers are more focused on the heat, but this one is 100% beer. The secret to this beer is the amount and duration of the jalapeno soak, as it has taken nearly two years to get it just right. About the name: Fuego is translated as "Fire" - The jalapeno is a fruit, a medium sized chili pepper with a warm, burning sensation when eaten. A mature jalapeno is 2-3.5 inches (5-9 cm) long and is commonly picked and sold when still green, but occasionally when ripe and red. The jalapeno is variously named in Mexico as huachinango and chile gordo The seeds have the heat of a jalapeno, but the flesh has a mild flavor close to a green bell pepper. We get our jalapenos from San Antonio’s finest spice company - Fiesta Spices - owned by the Bolner family.

Clear, deep golden with medium white head. Typical pils aroma. The jalapeño doesn’t impart any flavor, just burn. Hits almost immediately and finishes strong.

onceblind (4602) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Clear deep golden with a foamy rocky head. Clean blonde cracker aroma, but not much else. Smooth basic blonde ale/lagery flavor. Not truly complex, however it’s impeccably made. Just a fine flavorful but basic blonde brew.

Draft at the source. Clear yellow color. Aroma of mild pepper flesh. Taste is bitter straw, with dry bitter heat at the finish. Decent enough.

rougeau13 (2027) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Clear, very pale golden with a rapidly dissipating off-white head. Aroma of biscuit, wet dog, grass, and old cheese. The taste has a really nice pepper element, and that’s this thing’s saving grace, though there does seem to be a fair amount of hop bitterness. There’s no heat or anything, but the pepper flavor is just strong enough to give this some character. Light bodied, somewhat dry, with barely any carbonation.

The jalapeno is subtle to the point of not being noticeable. The only way I got any sense of heat was hold it in my mouth for several seconds. The beer itself was pretty good but they’re probably scaring people away by calling it "Fuego".

Bamsen78 (3426) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours clear light amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast and butter, with notes of hops and mild citric touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with spicy pepperlike notes and touches of citrus. Lingering sourish and spicy aftertaste. Mildly interesting but not fiery good.
