Bought at the brewery. I think it must have been some sort of horrible practical joke at my expense, by me.

Pours a golden colour, lots of carbonation bubbles feeding a mediocre head that dissipates quickly. Clear but a slight haze. Lace is non-existent. Extremely meh.

Smell is kind of nutty, but with an odd sweetness. A fair amount of chilli oil character, quite unpleasant really, pongy and phenolic and almost rotten. Certainly not appealing. At all.

Taste is hugely strong and vegetative, yeah lots of fruit tang on the front, then mega massive chilli hit, hugely spicy with just nothing but chilli on it. There's no flavour or complexity, just a massive chilli heat, from chilli. Congratu-fucking-lations, Myponga. You've put chillis in a beer. What talent. What innovation.

Thin and bland feel, just hot from the chillis. Pretty awful.

A boring - yet overpowering - undrinkable puddle of redneck piss. Quite an achievement, really - they've managed to make a beer that is dull as anything, yet also hugely repellent and unpleasant. Should I laud the Myponga brewery for producing undrinkable beer? They've been remarkably consistent and this just crowns it all off.
