Karbach Brewing Hella Chella

Alcohol Content: 5% ABV IBU:13 Can

The Review

Our beer was served very cold in a can.


The color is a light red. The clarity is hazy and the sediment is slight. No head seen.


The aromatic intensity is Medium-High, this beer lets you know it’s there. Big spice notes of garlic, onion, black pepper, chilies and tomato.


Sweetness is low, and so is the bitterness. Acidity is medium-low. Perceived sweetness is medium, and the perceived bitterness is also medium-low.


This beer has a low carbonation, and the body fullness is medium-full. Astringency is not noticable. Alcohol presence is slight.


The lingering characteristic on this beer is that it’s “burn” stays in the throat, and does so for a long time. That being said the finish quality is very good.


If you like micheladas, then you’re gonna love this beer. If you don’t like spicy foods, perhaps you should tread carefully. This beer definitely bites back. My initial reaction to this tasting was that I didn’t care for it at all. After a short time, Hella Chella’s finish pulled me in. Now I get it. Hella Chella is just a cool way to drink your soup…and have a damn good time doing it. We definitely encourage anyone to give this beer a try. The only thing you have to lose is your preconceived notions about what beer is “supposed” to taste like.
