COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-bodied ale has an amazing chili aroma that jumps out at you. We infuse this beer with fresh Serrano, Habenero, Jalapeno, Anaheim, and Fresno chili peppers. Surprisingly, the chili flavor is strong but not overpowering and comes through without lending too much heat. Billy’s Chilies is a very drinkable beer and pairs perfectly with chicken, steak and especially tacos. It finishes dry with a spiciness that will leave you thirsty for more.

Great chile beer. Their regular Billy is 5 chile pepper types, this adds hatch pepper, and it is smoked. Three eights head on yellow body. Big taste. The slight smoke in the nose draws one in.Some malting to make it drinkable. Best ofthree decent chiles on tap today. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2010 Incredible chili aroma! The smell of peppers dominates. My mouth is watering already. An orange-yellow color, its head does not last long. The flavor is pepper with supporting malt sweetness. Delicious! Not hot at all. This beer is all about the flavor of chilies, not their heat. Hops? Hops are a distant after thought and nothing this beer needs. The chili flavor takes the place of hops. The chili flavor is well done and is very satisfying. I’m a fan of chili beers, I have judged more home brewed examples than I can count, and this is by far the best one I’ve ever had. To capture the flavor and aroma of these chilies and have it as drinkable as it is is a real accomplishment.

I’m not sure why others have reviewed this so poorly - they must just not like this style of beer. I found this beer to be absolutely wonderful. Me and several of my friends enjoy this beer very much and seek it out often. It has just the right balance of spicyness without being too hot, and also without being too dull. If you enjoy mexican food - with a little kick (not burn your mouth) then you should definitely try this beer as it is very good.

The subtle malt flavors of this beer compliment the strong but pleasant hot chili flavors and spices, The hops flavors are almost non-existent, but that works pretty well as the chilis do a good job of counteracting the sweetness of the malts.

Poured from tap to glass. Slightly hazy straw hue with white head. Aroma is huge chilis, jalapeños, seranos, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and good carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spiciness throughout the finish and lingering in the back of my throat. Overall this is a great chili beer with a log of depth!
