Also, tried some chillli beer the other day. It was about as good as could be expected...which is to say, no bueno.
Why must people fuck with beer? It's perfect the way it is, and very simple. You give grain to Germans and Dutch people, and you drink what they make with it and you do NOT QUESTION THE SYSTEM.
If they did it to a real drink, like scotch or vodka, someone might actually kill them for their crimes.What's chilli beer?
It's beer, with chilli flavouring. Or something. It's not entirely clear because there are no ingredients on the packaging. It's insanely spicy, too. Like, the mild beer was like drinking a jalfrezi. The medium was like smearing curry powder directly over your eyes. I'm dreading the final one.
There was one brewery back home that made a good green chili beer. It was a really light ale and you just got the bit of bite at the end. Good in summer.
It can be good if done right. Say Two Henry's Blueberry Jalapeno Porter. Decent.
If you see Billy's Chilies or Ghost Face Killah, run. Just run.
