2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden with no head and very little lacing. The chile aroma predominates, masking other potential notes. Taste is more like chile pepper juice without the heat than beer. Fizzy on the palate.
Sampled at GABF 2017 in Denver, CO. Numerical rating only - did not take detailed notes. Listed in the GABF program as "Sierra Blanca Green Chile Cerveza". hauxe (1022) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2017
Pours gold from the bottle. The white fizzy head fades fast. Aroma has a soft malty base with noticeable chili. Taste is very sweet, with a strong chili inflection. Finishes sweet and spicy. Feels contrived, and lacks all nuance. Quickly wears out its welcome. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Head literally runs away, sickly yellow appearance. Nose/taste of corn, peppers, mildly spicy, palate finish of a soda. Not really even like a beer. bnokk (548) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2016
looks like a lager. Head is fizzy, and short lived.
FLAVOR- tastes like super cheap lager And hardly any Chile flavor. rosenbergh (11949) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Draught at the Casa Chimayo, Santa Fe, NM as Rio Grande Green Chile.

Clear golden color with a small white head.
Sweet malt and some mild vegetables in the aroma.
Mild hops, sweet malt, mild vegetables and some chili in the flavor.
Lagery beer with a mild chili note.
Goes easily with the chile relleno.
the pepper and light heat is nice enough, but it’s a pepper beer atop a substandard yellow lager. Nothing to see here, folks... stevoj (5878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods-Indian School Plaza. From the get-go, a weak pour, pale golden and minimal head. Aroma of peppers. Stronger in aroma than in taste. Seems that some chilies were added to a pale lager. Nothing too special here, pepper aroma and taste, not even finishing well. dwyerpg (6497) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Another basically undrinkable chile beer. Very pale yellow, gross chile flavor. Sticks in the esophagus. luttonm (6972) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle in WA. Clear yellow, small bubbles. Veggie note throughout. Not much spice. Clean. Balanced. Meh

12oz bottle pours out a crisp straw topped with white head. Nose is all green chilli and jalapeno peppers. Taste is corn grain and a touch of peppers on the end.
