Clear pale golden color with a small white head. Chili, vegetables and malt. More malty and spicy. Chili very subtle.

Tap. Pours clear golden, small white head, good lacing. Aroma is indeed huge chili, perhaps a bit of honey underneath. Flavor is light sweet, pepper but just a touch of heat, floral notes. Light plus body.

Arthree (48) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
Sample at the brewery. Golden yellow with a thin ring of foam. Smells like a hot spicy pretzel. I almost cant taste the cream ale under the chile flavour, but it seems oddly balanced. Nicely done gimmick, and definitely worth trying.

Travlr (22057) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Draft at the source. Slightly hazy yellow color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of burning straw, smoking pepper. Taste is charred pepper skin and burning hay, decent hay. Delicious.

Taster. Pale gold, white head. A little heat on the nose... The chile works well to give this beer some needed body and flavor!!!

Very well done. Smoke and chili on the nose, nice creamy malt with distinctive chili taste - present but pleasant. Nice long balanced finish.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Draught at Fate South, 12/28/15.
Clear, bright golden body shows good carbonation and a small, white, moderately-well-retained head.
HUGE chile nose is delightfully authentic, tasteful and well-supported by the fresh house yeast and dry, but apparent malt backing. Smells exactly like freshly roasted green hatch chiles and is powerfully sniffable.
Flavor follows, showing little/no heat, as is the case with these chiles. Fleshy, gently roasted pepper character is backed by a zesty, mostly tight carbonation and crisp, grainy malt texture, with appropriate wateriness allowing high drinkability and no flaw or alcohol. Great attenuation, as with all of their beers and good extraction/mashing leading to a malty, enjoyably soft texture.

draft, i really like chilli beers, this one has great chili flavor on a blank canvas of a base beer. Lots chilli falvor with light heat. Actually one of the first spicy beers i want more of.

jredmond (7787) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Aroma is strong assertive chiles and a vague sweetness beneath. Mouthfeel is nice - medium-bodied, creamy with notes of chiles, light vanilla, rounded malt character and additional sweetness.
