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.
