Like spicy food? Like beer? Beer with a chili stuck in it should be a natural, right? Survival impulse to swallow or spit poison kicks in after the first sip. The lager is a cheap, adjunct-grade brew. Bottled hate.
Where to drink it: Enjoy at your next he-man, monster truck pull or macho competition or at your niece’s (the one who can’t cook) dinner party to paralyze your mouth.
Pairing: Water. Ice. Poor decision-making skills.
