I give this high marks because I think they pulled it off. I was expecting a gimmick beer but it works. The aroma is fresh jalapeño with a little malt. Golden color with two-finger white head. Lighter weight like a pilsner with average carbonation. The dominant flavor is jalapeño, maybe some smokiness and a little hops. There is a bit of heat at the back end but nothing like Ghost Face Killah. Good job.
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a shallow, fine-grained, white head. Nose is fresh and roast jalapeno, lime, corn tortilla, smoke, and lavender. On the tongue, it has a pronounced hoppiness with a strong, even heat; there’s no green element to the jalapeno. This is definitely smoked and roasted, not raw, and it works very well. Enough malt sweetness to balance the heat. It stays with you on the long finish. Chili beers tend to be unbalanced; this one’s right on the money. Well done. gkeh (482) - Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Well it is what it is... Green and roasty on the nose, roasty and quite spicy on the tongue. Glad I tried it, but probably won’t buy again. koleminer20 (3599) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2016
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 2. The pour is a dark orange with a thin ring of bubbly foam and a lot of sediment that is surprising. The aroma is all jalapeño. There is a hint of malt and a lot of pepper. It's plain and peppery. Ugh. The flavor is going to be terrible. And I was right. There is a ton of pepper. It's a little malt and a heavy pepper. The mouth feel is thinner and a little syrupy with a light carbonation and a lingering jalapeño heat. I'm so not a fan of pepper beers. Damnit.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #2. Aroma is fresh pepper, spicy, dry, not good. Appearance is amber orange, light light tan head. Taste is sweet, tons of pepper, spice, fresh jalapeno. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, peppery spicy aftertaste. Overall, this is exactly as expected. Not good. baraciisch (3239) - California, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Hazy golden orange in color... You can smell the jalapeño fire emanating from the glass... Flavor is light golden and toasted malts initially, lots of jalapeño and vegetable notes on the palate... Actually a lot more drinkable than I had thought by the smell, the sweet malts kinda balance the fire... Not my favorite style but decent for what it is

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells of peppers, hints of hops and malt sweetness. Taste is pepper, spiciness, and subtle hints of maltiness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, No Label Don Jalapeño Ale finishes with a supple lingering burn. DrunkSanta410 (940) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Finally convinced myself to give this one a shot. Pours hazy copper color, white head with tiny bubbles. Aroma of caramel malts, faint peppers. Taste is semi sweet malts, a bit of roast, peppery burn on the finish. Not over the top, but it’s evident they are there. I could have a few with mexican food. Light body, a bit oily from the peppers. Novelty beer, it’s ok. ethanTHEtrill (57) - - MAR 11, 2015
6 pack from HEB off Pin Oak Rd. Poured into an American pint glass. Thin white head with hazy yellow collor. Taste starts off with a pale base, slight hops and malt, then evolves into an earthy taste of peppers both roasted and fresh notes are prevalent; ending in a slight burn and an oily slick malt mouthfeel. Really good will be drinking more of this. I would like to see a Don Habanero or Serrano. Dogbrick (13018) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2014

Vegetal aroma with some malt behind it. Medium body with flavors of mild jalapeno, grainy malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is semi-hot with a peppery aftertaste.
