So... I got this in a beer exchange. The person who bought it actually liked it. So I figured I’d give it a try. It looks and smells like an American macro pilsner, with a serrano pepper in it. The taste starts with a hint of sweet, before the pepper burn kicks in. The burn does stay only in the mouth, and doesn’t follow down the throat... but that doesn’t make it good. I like spicy foods, but there needs to be some other flavor besides just the pepper. A one note beer, best given as a joke to someone you dislike.

Finally finally trying this. 12oz bottle pours with clear deep gold body that supports no head at all within 40 seconds. The aroma offers up a decent level of chili peppers. That works. The taste delivers a rush of lagery sugar sweetness and then a growing chili pepper burn. The heat reaches a modest level. The chili pepper looks like a small turd floating around in piss.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 Mærkelig maltaroma. Ingen humle. Smagen er ren chilli, og den virker kvalm på mig. Drikker den nok lidt for varm, men jeg færdiggør ikke mit halve glas.

My chili obsession sometimes get the best of me. I found this chili beer and I couldn’t resist picking it up! It’s a Mexican beer (of course) and there actually is a chili pepper inside the bottle! This is one of those cases where it is disgusting and awesome as the same time. The beer is supposed to be a lager with chili added. And oh boy - this is some hot stuff! My tolerance is pretty high for spicy things (except for the Spice Girls), but this beer is by far the most powerful chili brew I’ve had yet! The beer is shit, but the spicyness makes it kinda fun. There isn’t really any flavor other than hot sauce in this beer! But this is all about the lols ’n gags for me, and not about the flavor. I’m gonna eat the pepper too when I reach the bottom, just for the fuck of it.

Originally rated on 2/10/09. It stared out good enough a faint hint of malts, typical lager aroma, with the chili quickly dominating. Appearance was a golden yellow body with average carbonation, and a thin head. Wasnt much flavor unless you count the spiciness of the chili, which quickly grew unbearable, i had to throw out half of it. I really like spicy foods, but this beer didnt work out for me at all.

From old tasting notes. Deep yellow gold color. Little head to speak of.ntart peppery malt nose. Wow! Big hot pepper flavor upfront that dominates everything else. Intense spiciness leaves you wanting more. Unique.

Bottle at home, brewed in Tecate, Mexico. No head, aroma of pickled jalapeno. Spicy hot, pepper, makes drooling and feeling no taste at all. Chili is just all over it.

Bottle 0.33 l, EPI, Wrocław, Poland.
Jasnozłote piwo z cienką, od razu znikającą pianą oraz ciekawym zapachem papryczki chili. W smaku wodniste, piwa nie czuć ale jest moc chili, która wypala gardło przy pierwszym łyku.

Couleur dorée, aucune mousse, et un vrai piment vert dans la bouteille! Nez sur le piment et legume vert frais. Gout très très rapide malté aqueux et le piment vert qui pique dans la bouche, puis ne reste que ca. Bref autant croquer de vrais piment. Pour ceux qui aiment le piment a l’eau. C’est pas une bière. Mais c pas horrible, juste faut aimer piment frais

Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is tons of jalapeñi chili, vegetable and soft pale malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with lots of chili burn. Body is light to medium. Quite gimmicky but I love spicy food and found this one fun and drinkable.

Skunk bottle. Pours medium yellow and lightly opaque with a floating chili that kills the foam and my expectations. Scent is chili oil. Taste is pale lager and strong properties of chili oil. Approximately jalapeno levels of spiciness. Finish is lingering chili. Gimmick. Average lager.
