The only thing I can say about this stuff is that I managed to down my bottle and eat the whole pepper. It's basically Corona "dry-peppered" with a chili, which floats turd-like in the bottle.
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 ok, wow this is jalapeno juice with a bit of alcohol. WOW, I mean someone might like it, but like not me. I drank it all though... sigh....so pathetic

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2007 Well, I had one before and did not take notes so I had to drink another for this review. Well, I attempted to drink it...rather I took a mouthful, swirled it around my mouth, choked a bit down and then ran to the fridge to wash off the nasty taste with a can of my wife’s Bud Light. That didn’t work do I brushed my teeth and tongue with Crest. That helped. Yeah, well, OK lets review this baby. No aroma to speak of, taste is light lager but after a few seconds the caspacin kicks in and you are left wanting a beer for refreshment. Thats when you realize the horrible truth that Cave Creek IS (supposed to be) a beer. I eat a lot of Mexican food and I eat whole Jalapeños, the beer is supposed to help cut the heat not add to it. I love hot sauces, I have a dozen in the fridge, one with up to a million SHUs but this beer just doesn’t do anything for me. After you take a drink your mouth is burning and you hand instinctively, after years of training, heads directly to the beer bottle, only to wash your mouth with more pepper. Thats when you think "what the *** is this?". The good news is that this beer is great slug repellent. celogan (204) - Oroville, California, USA - AUG 10, 2003
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. Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2003
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. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2003
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. andy609 (143) - Auburndale, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2003
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. Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2003
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. blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2003
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.
