500ml brown bottle from Beer & Bottles, Southampton. £2.59. Unfiltered. 4.2%. Hot Hot Hot Fran’s Chilli beer. There’s such a sharp and fresh smell and taste of chilli in this beer. Indeed, there’s a whole chilli in the bottle. It’s sharp and hot - enough to excite the taste buds and bring out a gentle sweat, but it’s not excessive. Difficult to comment on the beer, as the chilli dominates. As an excessive flavouring it’s up there with American hops. Fine for once in a while as a gimmick, but I couldn’t see myself having too many of these. Rob_D_UK (1369) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a murky copper with a frothy white head. Smells of chili and capsicum. Taste is pretty spicy.
