3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear copper color with a good head that stays quite long. Looks like a Vienna Lager.
Aroma isn’t very strong but pretty interesting. Roasted malt, caramel and some honey. It gets better as it warms. No chili here just a generic sweetness.
At first it tastes like a typical helles with less malt character and some hop bitterness. In the aftertaste you get a light tingle from the chili.
Medium, soft body light to medium carbonation. After you have a few sips, the chili starts to tingle more and more but it doesn’t really get hot.
Interesting beer overall. At first there isn’t much in the taste but as you drink it, the chili comes through. If the taste had more malt character and sweetness it would have been way better.
