DRAFT REVIEW: Pancho Verde Chile Cerveza
Just a quick whiff of this lager reveals its not-so-secret ingredient: roasted green chilies. Light grainy scents work their way through a robust earthy dried chili aroma. Pancho Verde swells in the mouth with roasted pepper notes that penetrate the clean lager base. The peppers billow just before the swallow, marking the throat with a touch of heat; the lasting warmth enhances the beer’s clean finish. Throughout the sip, a subtle, sweet graininess tempers the pepper’s sharpest edges, creating a delightfully drinkable beer.
