Bottle at the ChrisO Pre-GBBF Shindig 2012 - London. Pours mostly clear gold with a light, white foam head. Faint citrus nose, hints of veggies and chili. Medium sweet flavor with straw, orange. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Some hot chili sting in the finish, faint lime. Pretty meh. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Ginger slice nose with a hint of lemonade. Pours a hazy pale gold with a fluffy head. Flavour is intriguing - under hopped ipa meets ginger beer with a touch of chilli fire. Notes of lemongrass and lime are also present. Finish is spicy. I dunno, I think I quite like it. tommann (3801) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a thin head. Aroma is orange with a little ginger. Quite unasuming. Taste has chilli warmth to start and a hot chilli kick in the finish. Some juicy hops too, but over powered. One sided, nothing else to it, really. leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Golden with minimal foam. Aromas are ginger and chilli with floral notes and base biscuit. Tea with pepper but mostly chilli. Flavours are spicy with chilli burn and underlying caramel malts. Faint praise, but one of the better chilli beers. madmitch76 (25009) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012

On tap at the Old Fountain. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth with very mild carbonation. A little smooth malt. Mild orange marmalade and grapefruit hops. Touch of ginger and a whisper of apple. Finishes smooth with chilli heat starting to develop. Quite and easy drinking beer despite the spice but the chilli does linger.

sample at Chriso’s Pre GBBF tasting. golden pour, spiced chili notes, slight pepper induced heat, ginger not showing itself so much. Bitterness not so evident either jackl (8214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. Light amber color with no head. The nose is light herbal hops, some notes of strawberry jam. The taste is strawberry compote and dusty nuts. Good malt presence. Perhaps an old bottle? I’m not getting much hop bitterness. Nonetheless, fairly flavorful. Medium body, soft carbonation. OK. imdownthepub (14755) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer Fest ’12. Hazy gold with no head. I got the chilli and ginger in this straight away, there is a burning heat with the sharpness of the ginger, in a curry great, in a beer not so. omhper (25251) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2011
Cask at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury. Clear deep amber/golden. Ginger aroma. Sweet and fruity with medium body clean rounded mouthfeel. Hot chilli flavour that kills everything in it’s way. The most apt commercial description ever...
