Wow, where to begin.

Had this beer given to me by a dealer and should have had a warning sign there.

Appearance is the most appealing thing about this beer. Has a golden, crisp pour. Very little head to speak of. Looks like your typical Mexican beer with a pepper floating in it. Decent presentation.

Smell is a bit tolerable. Smells mostly of pickled peppers and isn't that overwhelming.

Taste is where things went down hill. I am Mexican and well versed in all things spicy. This takes the cake. It really doesn't assault the tongue, having almost an initial taste of sweetness. Once it moves beyond your tongue, it becomes more of a peppery burning sensation on the top of your mouth and back of your throat. It was difficult with every sip, and I did finish the beer in hopes that it provided me with the missing link I was looking for.

Mouthfeel is painful: hot, spicy, unpleasant.

Drinkability in nil. It is a novelty beer that I can't seem to take seriously.

The only real use I have found for it is marinating steaks and fajita meat. Has a good tenderizing ability and really flavors the meat. It is in the cooking realm I see this beer having its place.

There are chili beers, then there is Crazy Ed's. The presentation isn't really that impressive when the chili is more of a gray color. Pours, without the chili, a lemony yellow color with great clarity. Needed a lot of help and still left no foam what so ever. Sure chili beers will have limited head, but this is nothing.

The nose is super peppery. No real notes of a beer underneath. Typically with pepper beers you should have a good mix of both peppers and beers. But just smells like habanero. Some heat in the nostrils.

The taste is one dimensional. At first there is a grainy flavor with noticeable oxidation and cardboard flavors. Some noticeable butyric/dirty drain notes. This is quickly followed up with a spicy heat from more of a serrano chili flavor that lingers. The heat is strong and really doesn't balance. Another taste, off lager like beer followed up by a hot chili flavor. After a while you can't really taste the beer as the chili over powers everything.

Ended up dumping what I had. Sure chili beers should be hot, but they should also be balanced. This is not balanced at all. And what hints of beer notes there are, are off and really need help. I suppose this is one of those bump your chest, double dog dare you beers. To me its not good.
