Nephilium (1790) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
So... I got this in a beer exchange. The person who bought it actually liked it. So I figured Id 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 doesnt follow down the throat... but that doesnt 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.

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.

Sissio (1588) - Orsenigo, ITALY - APR 21, 2017
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, ktra wypala gardło przy pierwszym łyku.

Calisky (2883) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 27, 2017
Couleur dore, aucune mousse, et un vrai piment vert dans la bouteille! Nez sur le piment et legume vert frais. Gout trs trs rapide malt 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 leau. Cest pas une bire. Mais c pas horrible, juste faut aimer piment frais

tricksta_p (4318) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is tons of jalapei 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.

Great clarity, half finger of white head. Smells of left over halapeno juice from a jar. Like drinking air up front-no flavour. Chilli heat at the back end. Unbelievably bland, no flacour at all, just some chilli heat in your throat. Rubbish.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 APPEARANCE-light golden yellow, foamy head that dissipates super quickly. The chili pepper floating in the beer is a sure indication of quality. NOSE-quite spicy, smells like a New Mexico chili pepper. Quite nice. FLAVOR- spicy! Really enjoying it. Excellent lager!! NOTES- very standard ingredient list (barley, water, hop, yeast and a chili pepper) makes for a really good lager. Para este cervrza a ganar cero puntos es incredible!! Es mucho mejor de esto!! UPDATE- I had a second bottle, and it was only about 50% as good.

De Cerveceria Mexicana propiedad de grupo Modelo que su vez es propiedad de AB In Bev(BEL) esta Lager especiada con un chile serrano de nombre Chili Beer, contiene un 4.7% ABV. De entrada visualmente es una cerveza clara de tonalidad pajiza, corona de espuma delgada y baja retencin, carbonatacin considerable y cuerpo flojo. En aroma solo impera la nota picante y un carcter parecido a el vinagre, no se puede apreciar otro elemento. En el sabor creo es psimo desde un inicio el picante esta presente y la carbonatacin con la que cuenta lo hace mas incisivo, se siente tambien sabor a vinagre que quizs sea por el mismo adjunto picante y el tiempo al que estuvo expuesto la cerveza o que tambien se provocado a una oxidacin por el envase cristalino, esta a sido de las pocas cervezas que no e podido terminar, es muy picante y propicia una fuerte irritacin estomacal, solo la comprara como suvenir.
