Bottle. Amber w thin white head. Starts a bit malty and sweet. chipotle hits in the middle but does not linger except for some mellow spice. Some unpleasant aftertaste.

Bright amber, bubbly head, a bit smoky, with lots of maltiness. A touch of chipotle smoke lends accent to an otherwise sweet and uneventful amber. The sweetness and smoke go together well...you can see the underlying logic, but I’d prefer an extra dimension, either added bitterness or some sort of roast or even just an extra dose of chipotle. sulawang (1161) - - FEB 13, 2014
Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a lasting smallish creamy head, good lacing, lots of fast activity.
Nose: toffee malts (5/10-pungency)
Attack: half sweet malt/half burnt pepper, fizzy
Mid-palate: malty (6/10)-sweetness (MAIN) malts, burnt chipotle pepper
Finish: astringent bitter burnt smokiness and sweet malts, not smooth nor agreeable.
Summary: A drinkable brew but mostly tastes of bitter burnt pepper accompanied by a thin body. Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Bomber. Clear red copper, solid foamy tan head slowly settles and lasts. Aroma is mostly toasty malt with something vegetal. Moderately sweet mild toasted malt taste, some caramel, no bitterness, eventually a hint of spicy pepper. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Lightly hot spiced finish.

Bottle - Malty light ale notes with a bit of chipotle. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Light caramel malts notes with a light smokey chipotle and finishes with a tinge of heat. A simple but decent example of chipotle in beer.

meh smell is weak color is nice with little head flavour is mildly good but overall weak chipotle flavour CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Chipotle + Harvest = clash of personalities no? This is really an odd idea as Havest Ales are usually fresh hopped and the vibrant lung hop flavours would be buried by chipotle flavours - but alas, it’s Whistler and that town likes to buck the norm. Deep orange and slight brown colour. Nose is faintly sweet corn and mild hops. Flavour have the hop bitterness on the tongue but the flavours are stifled by a lingering peppery finish.
