On tap at the brewery. Served an amber color with a fair head that fades. Aroma of chili, herbs, malt and bit of spice. Taste of chili, spice with a bit of malt sweetness. Decent bitterness and a lingering spice feel. Fairly light body, has a chili/spice feel. Not bad, but not what i look for. jdleigh (53) - - MAR 25, 2013
Clear blond. Aroma is chili and cinnamon toast. Flavor is strongly of chili, with a surprise malt finish. starts spicy, finished creamy. Great with nachos! dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Sample. Poured a pale yellow color with a tiny white head that was gone rather quick. Aroma was malts and dominated by the peppers. Flavor was spicy and vegetables. Thinner body. Not a big fan of chili beers. This one was drinkable though. jandd1983 (4443) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2012
It poured a copper color with a tiny white head. The aroma was a sweet chili scent. The taste was straight forward amber beer with chili notes that build a little in the finish and aftertaste. Not an overwhelming chili beer. Spoke to the bartender and they have tamed it down since last year. Very good. vyvvy (6563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Sampled at 2011 Augusta Bottoms fest - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has lots of pepper that’s heavy on serrano along with some light malt, but it is pepper heavy. Light body with light carbonation. The flavor starts much like the aroma with more of the peppers showing through. Also the varieties show through on the taste - jalapeno, serrano and cheyenne. There is some light blonde ale malt as well. The finish has phenolic spice added to the pepper. This is a scovile fest beer while still maintaining beer aspects.

Draft served in a pint glass at Nick’s Pub. Pours a bright, clear gold color with a small white head that leaves some spots of lace in the glass. Aroma of chili peppers, sweet malts, and vegetal notes- simple and faint. Flavor of vegetal habanero peppers, pale and sweet malts, and some earthy, grassy notes. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. The spiciness doesn’t rest in the palate so much but I could feel the burn on my lips. I think it’s an unspoken rule that all Missouri brewers make at least one chili beer. It admittedly is not a style I generally like, but Augusta’s might be the best.
