The beer pours the color of honey, tinted burnt orange. There is a quarter-inch of white head that fizzes away quickly. The aroma is fresh and spicy peppers, like poking your head in a burlap bag of fresh ones. The peppers are somewhat roasted and tangy. The taste follows the aromas, but with a decent heat dulling the taste a touch. There is an incongrous bitterness in the aftertaste that I don't like.
