The key to this beer, Ive found, is drinking it while or after you have eaten something pretty spicy. It is really really good under those circumstances, otherwise its really horrific. Ive never experienced a beer quite like this one, and thats a good thing!

Deep golden hue. Another Weston with a weak head and over-carbonation. Aroma of heavy green pepper. Tastes of jalapeno. Hell, this actually is drinkable, but you must like hot pepper heat, and I do. I wouldnt say its *impressive* - Ive yet to be remotely impressed by Weston Brewing Company - but this isnt so bad.

12 oz bottle. From a trade with deyholla. Thanks! Cloudy orange amber colour with no head. Malt and fresh green pepper and jalapeño in the aroma. Sweet malt, mild bitter hops and jalapeño in the flavour. Spicy. Warms a bit. Chili burn stays. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle at LH2. Orange color with thin white head. Spicy habenero aroma. Decent lager that has a spicy backbone. Drinkable but not more than one

12oz bottle 7/20/13 (Brown Jug-Springfield)-46 in Hurricane-Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of various peppers. Taste of peppers and sweetness. This light bodied brew is not bad.

Not a giant fan of this beer. I dont mind the heat, which is considerable, but there needed to be more malty sweetness to balance this out. Tried it when it was still called the Brew Lab Hot Pepper Ale.

This beers aroma smells of piquant pepper, which makes your nose stand at attention, and the color is a clear yellow with a white ring on the top of the liquid. The taste, though, isnt as powerful as the smell leads you to believe, for the flavor is slightly sweet and a touch sour that balances out the mild spiciness. Also, the mouthfeel combines a soft carbonation, thin texture, a medium body, and a spicy finish.

2013 bottle to a snifter. Chili, cayenne and green pepper. Leaves a backup vomit burn in the back of your throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours an orange color with white head. Peppery aroma with some malty sweet aromas in the background. Malty backbone, but peppers dominate the flavor. Im not a big pepper ale fan, so my ratings tend to be low. This is a beer within the pepper ale style that I can handle. Nice peppery/hot/spicy flavor, but not overdone, with some malty sweetness lingering in the background.
