This beer pours very light gold, and has the lightest aroma of pepper spray. First sip, refreshing but then the lemon and corn flavour gives way to a chili warmth, as if coming in from the sides. Instant reaction is to take another mouthful to cool you down – big mistake. Sip it to enjoy the taste, if you like eating green chillies from a jar. Drink it to obliterate the taste of a cheap wine or bad meal. Don’t buy it for your partner on a first date.
When pouring you can take the chili out of the bottle (as in the picture) an put it into your glass. Apparently it heats up once released from the bottle. Don’t even try to drink from the bottle.
I read a review of this beer that was written as follows:
I remember it all so clearly. A weak, flat, pale beer…an eye-watering fermented pepper smell…
And then the taste. Oh, that terrible, terrible taste. I’ve never had a beer that appeared to have been intentionally made this bad. And that includes that terrible concoction of Bud Light & Clamato juice.
And it doesn’t go away, the taste. It burns, and not in a good way. Try as many other beers as you want, nothing will wash your palate of this awful sin.
Over a decade later, and I regularly suffer from Class 3 heart-burn. I’m relatively certain I can trace it back to this beer.”
You have been warned.

Now that sounds bad and I don’t really drink beer, but as a chilli lover, I sort of want to try it.
