   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bright amber, bubbly head, a bit smoky, with lots of maltiness. A touch of chipotle smoke lends accent to an otherwise sweet and uneventful amber. The sweetness and smoke go together well...you can see the underlying logic, but I’d prefer an extra dimension, either added bitterness or some sort of roast or even just an extra dose of chipotle.

sulawang (641) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a lasting smallish creamy head, good lacing, lots of fast activity. Nose: toffee malts (5/10-pungency) Attack: half sweet malt/half burnt pepper, fizzy Mid-palate: malty (6/10)-sweetness (MAIN) malts, burnt chipotle pepper Finish: astringent bitter burnt smokiness and sweet malts, not smooth nor agreeable. Summary: A drinkable brew but mostly tastes of bitter burnt pepper accompanied by a thin body.

Lagerboy (1324) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Bomber. Clear red copper, solid foamy tan head slowly settles and lasts. Aroma is mostly toasty malt with something vegetal. Moderately sweet mild toasted malt taste, some caramel, no bitterness, eventually a hint of spicy pepper. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Lightly hot spiced finish.

Ferris (4968) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle - Malty light ale notes with a bit of chipotle. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Light caramel malts notes with a light smokey chipotle and finishes with a tinge of heat. A simple but decent example of chipotle in beer.

manisthebeer (240) - squamish, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
meh smell is weak color is nice with little head flavour is mildly good but overall weak chipotle flavour

CapFlu (4610) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Chipotle + Harvest = clash of personalities no? This is really an odd idea as Havest Ales are usually fresh hopped and the vibrant lung hop flavours would be buried by chipotle flavours - but alas, it’s Whistler and that town likes to buck the norm. Deep orange and slight brown colour. Nose is faintly sweet corn and mild hops. Flavour have the hop bitterness on the tongue but the flavours are stifled by a lingering peppery finish.
