2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like someone dropped pickled jalapenos in my beer...not really an aroma I prefer from my beer. Golden in color with little white head. Tastes like a golden ale with slight hot finish; not as bad as it smells.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can, brought to me by a co-worker who frequents Colorado. Poured a dark fizzy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was some light chile notes, smells like other chile beers. Flavor is roasted and smoked pepper, but there’s no heat at all in this one. Quite flavorful and enjoyable for people who like chilies and beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours hazy golden yellow with a medium frothy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is fresh chile peppers (Anaheim?).
The flavor is some sweet malts with chile flavor. It’s got a little heat but is pretty mild. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a solid mild chile beer. Good flavor, but not a lot of heat.

Not my cup of tea (or beer), but I did enjoy it. I do not like spicy beer so i was weary to try this. I was pleasantly surprised! Pours a golden color with white head. Aroma is all Green Chilies with some hay/barn yard smell. Taste is all green chilies in the front and slightly sweet hay taste in the back. The green chile taste disappears too fast on the palette. I would like to have had the green chile taste all the way through. No spice at all which is great for me. great food pairing beer.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 Strong Chile smell. Taste only hints of chiles but aftertaste has that familiar chile burn. Nice novelty beer that I wouldn’t want too often

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at brewpub. A good pilsner base to this. Some grainy malt with some grassy, funky hops. Would jabber been good just left at this. Some chile noticeable, and it makes the experience interesting. Wouldn’t drink pint after pint of this, but still a thumbs up.
