The beer pours a red tinted golden. There is a half-inch of white foamy head that fizzes away in a short time. Amazingly, the head has red streaks of chili in it. The aroma is roasted and dried red chiles, over corn, dry, cracked, fresh, with a hint of smokiness. The taste follows the aromas, adding a moderate heat that lingers at the back of the throat. The finish is abrupt and dry. The beer drinks refreshing, with a moderate sting of carbonation complementing the light sting of chiles. This is a quite nice chili lager.
