Draft at Great Basin, Reno. Bold yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is mild and fresh with the chili peppers and hints of heat. Really clean and fresh pepper flavors. Seems like a good chili pepper beer to me has a bell pepper taste… this one has it too. Light heat, but it lets you know its there. One of the better chili beers I’ve tried for sure. lkrndu (1) - - AUG 12, 2016 does not count
A really ugly beverage. Aroma hints at something better but the chile overpowers the cerveza; the mix is visual and sensory mud, very bitter and too sharp with chile gusto. And at that, the mix leaves no distinct palate-pleasing note. Avoid. (In fact we’d like our money back on our first bottle from Costo, please.)
"1" ratings for taste, palate, or overall were forced by the form scripts; zero not an option unfortunately. nealblind (2036) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Clear very light gold with lots of foam. Aroma pepper jack cheese, deep pepper. Tastes slight wheat, cracker tame flash of heat. Travlr (26948) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2016

Tap at West Coast Invitational 2015. Clearly not the salsa version. Jalapeno aroma. Med body, nearly. Flavor is moderate jalapeno; a little pepper in the throat. Very nice. Not kidding! slowrunner77 (13409) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 "i don’t know that i’d care for the light beer that’s under the chile flavor, but the chiles are always done well. That said, it is a little different each time, but always pretty good. Decent beer, good if you’re in the mood."
Gotta up it a little as the 2015 bottle release is quite nice. Still inconsistent on tap, though. dwyerpg (6582) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Apparantly this has quite the reputation around these parts, but like all chile beers, I just don’t know why. Smells very strongly of chile, despite the name. The flavor is much less of chile, but way too much for me. Ick. jcwattsrugger (12581) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2011
on tap-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is chile. Taste is chile with slight heat, sweet light malt. Clean. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Draft @ Great Basin. Pours a clear, pale straw color; thin white head with patchy lacing. Strong, fresh note of jalapeno in the aroma; nicely peppery, very light heat. Medium mouthfeel: the jalapeno note is really the only thing going on here, but it’s clearly expressed: fresh pepper, light-to-medium heat, like biting into a crisp green pepper followed by a chomp of jalapeno; well-expressed, clear show of the veggie. Nice work here. Lengthy finish: the sugar and lightly toasted grains fade quickly while the pepper flavor and heat (light) linger.
