ollllo was nice enough to send me a bottle his Hatch cream for review. All he told me was to keep an open mind.
Aperance. - very pale with some haze, nice white fluffy head, carbonation looks spot on.
Aroma- Oh man, I can smell this thing just pouring it. First thing that hits your nose is a slight smell of malt, then bam!!! peppers Reminds me a lot of a chili pepper.
Taste- Ok here we go. First taste that hits me is the flavor of a kollsh or similar beer. Peppers are defiantly their, nothing to over powering. It kind of gives a roasted pepper flavor. Nicely done, only thing I might would have changed was to have a little more malt background, but I have never had a beer like this before so I don't if something like that would even work.
Overall- Very interesting beer. I have had some unusual beers, and this one is one I am glade I got the chance to try. I think this one would be interesting with a spicy yeast, like a saison strain or something, just to give it a little more flavor to compete with the peppers.
Damn now I wish I had some Jalapenos to grill.
Thanks ollllo, this beer is tasting great right now, while I am outside brewing.
