This is a strange brew. Might go good with bean dip and chips as the spicyness is dominant. It goes down your throat like a salsa, has a slight burn to it. Not a lot of beer flavor. Carbonation wasn't bad. This poured light golden color with no head or lacing. I'd maybe drink it again if offered with no other choices and I really wanted something at least close to beer.

Golden hue. Quickly diminishing white head. Nose of nasty industrial brew, and chili pepper. No flavor really, sweet, then just spicy budweiser. Really spicy...Really nasty. It is back in Massachusetts, but its really expensive...Never again for me!

I like chiles but this was not realy to my liking. Light yellow in color with little head. Aroma is light astringent/disinfectant and pepper. Really no flavor except for some heat. I kind of liked the idea, but this one turned out a loser.

What more negative can be said about this abomination. I like beer, I like chili peppers, I even like to drink beer while I eat spicy food, but spicy beer does not work.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 This is nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. As soon as you open the bottle, the chili pepper starts fizzing releasing the aroma of chili pepper. After pouring into a glass which concentrates the aroma it smells even better. The appearance is pale yellow with no head. The taste is alright if you like Mexican food, which I do. Needless to say, I could not finish this beer; it's just too hot. I would have needed to drink another one concurrently, and I did not want to ruin that one. Basically Corona with a chili pepper added.

Ok, a lot of people absolutely hate this beer. And while, after tasting it, I can understand that what would you expect from a beer w/ a chili pepper in it? Basically it was the taste of holding Budweiser in your mouth w/ some spicey salsa. Not worth drinking but not worth bashing. Nice marketing.

light fizzy, weird dark yellowish color with no head. luckily there was no aroma to speak of. the taste was pretty much what i had expected, cheap beer flavor with a spicy overtone, and spicy as in bad spicy.

Pale beer and it fizzs away like lemonade and produces virtually no head. Ginger beer aroma, and flavour but with a chilli kick. This is the only beer I have feared to drink, and it is justified. This beer is genuinely one of the worst if not the worst beer in the world. Why make a beer that burns the mouth and ruins the flavour of the next drink you have. Never again will I drink this beer.

I was wondering if they still made this stuff. It's like they took what was left of all the Corona after the Arizona-Arizona State football game, mixed in a bunch of jalepeno peppers, bottled it, and sold it to places as a novelty. I don't know anyone who drinks more than one of these, and not many people even finish it after a couple of sips. I dig the spicey aftertaste, that's interesting, but otherwise, this is just a horrible excuse for beer. The funniest thing I've seen is six packs of this. Like someone's going to go get a sixpack of Cave Creek and take it to a party. If you ever have to attend a "bad beer" party, don't get a six of Keystone or Black Label, get a sixer of this. I GUARANTEE you there will be more than two left after everyone goes home.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Clear yellow, no head. Weak aroma of typical lager. I was wondering how bad it could be with an aroma so weak. Oh man. Start drinking and when the back of your throat starts tingling you realize that this is not a beer. This is someone as stupid as me who chooses to drink the juice left over in the jalapeno jar. How about a garbage can-water taste? Rancid? The heat isn’t there; it’s the awful feeling all throughout your mouth that makes this so bad. On a more serious level, of the handful of chili beers I’ve had, this one goes way to far. Simply disgusting. I want my $0.99 back.
