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.
