330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, immediately fading, white "head". Slightly tart-ish, peppery spicy chili aroma. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hot and spicy, chili notes; soft palate, flat carbonation, almost a bit slimy texture. AtronSeige (1788) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 13, 2015
Aroma: Medium-high chilli.
Appearance: Briliant, dark gold body. No head.
Flavour: Medium-high chilli. Medium chilli burn. Medium-light bready. Burn lingers for a really long time.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: The chilli is the main character, but the beer almost does not feature. The beer is not very drinkable and seems more like a party-joke than a beer that people would actually drink.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

330ml bottle from B&M Bargains - Clear yellow, no head, green slug-like chilli floating in it. Nose is a sharp veggie chilli, nothing else. Taste is warm... spicy... almost spirit like burn to it. Thin and no carbonation. Not the worst chilli beer I’ve had though. Iphonephan (7476) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
From a bottle at the RB DC tasting September 6. Pours a clear pale gold with a scant head. Flavors of chili. Flavors of intense green habenero. Whoa! GTAEgeek (2502) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2015
12 oz. bottle, shared with Carlson. Pale gold color, with almost no head, and some pulp that settles out and acts as activation points for bubbles off the bottom of the glass. The nose is actually reasonable, with some sharp hot pepper, vinegar, caramel, and pine. The flavor destroys all hope - truly awful, corn syrup sweetness, and abrasive and unpleasant hot spice. The mouthfeel is watery, acidic, and harsh. I’m glad I didn’t have to finish a whole bottle. Feels like drinking from a pepper sauce container. Ugh.

A very complex beer I must certainly admit. Only the clear bottle where you can see a whole chili swim around can discourage most. The strong chili dominate both fragrance and taste totally.
For a reason that I do not quite even know, I find it anyway inspiring and tasteful for a large American cheeseburger with french fries and ketchup all over the place. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The floating chili pepper is pure gimmicky genius and I love the fiery flavor of this. But hey, I also loved almost every pepper and habanero flavored beer I have had to date. If it is well chilled the flavor is killer and in my humble opinion it gets the party rolling with all kinds of potential session drinking. Russo (2013) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Pale yellow color almost transparent with a very thin head and a pepper inside! Aroma is chili pepper, very very very spicy. Flavor is awful! Pour pepper! High carbonation and watery body with a damn spicy finish. King_Alex_II (1227) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Chili smell. Golden lightly carbonated beer. The taste is chili dominated with a weak carrier beverage behind it. The aftertaste is as well chili dominated. Interesting, but not necessarily good. SinH4 (6567) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015
Golden color with no head. Aroma of chili. Nothing else. Taste of chili with bad lager in the back. Hellno!
