COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Jalapeo Pale is in a class by itself. Using our Free Will Pale as a foundation, we add a generous amount of fresh, hand-cut jalapeos mixed with a hint of awesome. Dont be scared to try it! The Jalapeo is refreshing, crisp, and pairs well with the peanuts we have in the tap room!

An underwhelming experience overall. Pours very light amber capped a one finger head that leaves a healthy ring of lace. The aroma us lightly floral hops with not much else going on. Medium bodied quaff lacking much malt or hop character. Bland until the fresh jalapeno pepper finish rides in slowly. Nice use of jalapeno, evoking the flavor without the heat. Just a hint if tingle. But the base beer leaves a lit to be desired .

Pours a golden-amber into the glass, with a soft foamy head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is of fresh jalapeńo skins and pepper seeds. Flavors of Crystal malt, jalapeńo peppers (whole, diced), light acidity and grains finish with a mix of dry bitters and heat from the peppers. Jalapeńo pepper oils sting the lips lightly... a quality I quite like in a pepper brew. The mouthfeel surprisingly is medium-light, providing an easy quaff, with a substantial amount of peppers to provide the complex lingering heat, without overpowering the palate. This pale is done very nicely, not relying on heat alone for the brews makeup. A wallop of jalapeńos is definitely noted, but held in check by the other complexities at work. A nice quaff ensues, and integrates all of the substances together to provide a nice vegetal brew for those who like heat along with their brew. Kudos to Birdsong for a delicious offering! Very nice indeed! Prost!

hopscotch (10945) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2017
Can... Pours clear and golden with orange highlights and a white head. The aroma features earthy hops and earthy jalapenos. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is all about assertive jalapenos accompanied by unobtrusive bitterness. No spicy heat though. Not much going on here. Not flawed. Just boring with a bitter, chili pepper aftertaste.

Really this is well done for a spice beer. Pairs perfect with Doritos. Nose is pepper and corn grain. No bite on the back of the throat. But lots of corn tortilla. Nice. Just needs more bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared 16 oz. can. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Jalapeno pepper nose. Taste is largely jalapeno, light malt, hint of citrus. Mildly spicy finish. Not bad.

darbeer75 (793) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Aroma: definitely getting jalapeno; Appearance: hazy yellow pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: surprisingly good; jalapeno lends pepper flavor without spiciness to decent pale ale; works well together; Palate: medium body with medium finish and a hint of spice at the end; Overall: was suspicious at first but actually quite good.

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2016
I am a fan of pepper beers and this one (16 oz can) is a nice one. Havent tried the base pale, but generally dont care for English hopped pales. Hops play a Back seat to the jalapeos, but its well balanced. Light to moderate Hoppiness and a nice pepper aroma and flavor, fresh, vegetal without a ton of heat. Nice summer brew.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Different kinda beer from local clt brewery. Aroma and taste dominated by fresh jalapeño notes. Very one dimensional beer. No heat to speak of which jives with the can label. Not picking up much hop character. Fairly easy drinking and medium mouthfeel. An interesting take on a pale ale but how much jalapeño does anyone really want to drink? Novelty category here. One and done. WBA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shag (2915) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Bright golden with white head. Smells like straight up fresh jalapeos and citrus. Flavor is not hot but pepper flavor is there. The citrus flavor is there second in line. Overall not for session drinking but good for a pint.
