2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
An awful Desperados knock-off. Has a citrusy synthetic taste with some slight metallic notes and a bit of barley sugar. It’s fairly sweet, but not cloying. It has a high percentage at 6%, although this has been lowered and will give you a bad hangover. Stick to Depserados.
Price paid: £5 for 6 bottles.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from the Red Lion, Stretham. Mid-yellow, almost no head. Muted carbonation. Smells of chalk and citrussy squash. Tastes... wow... OK not great but decent. Artificial like a lager and line cordial but certainly drinkable. Long sour-bitter limeade finish. Not bad!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle from Local Express, Kings Cross, London:
This one was a really terrible beer, by no means the worst I’ve tried but to be honest I wasn’t expecting much else from it & it probably wasn’t even quite as bad as I feared going in. Obviously it’ll not be one I’ll pick up again given it was far too sweet, thin & off-putting but I guess it could have been a lot worse.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from local supermarket this one is 5.5%. Pale gold in colour with a small white head. Aroma of limes, little else. Very sweet with a sour lime bitterness. Thin body, medium carbonation. Not for me but guess it does its intended job.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Expected this to taste pretty much like lager and lime. Not far off, but there is a bit more tang to it - can’t really pick up the tequila. Smells like it’s going to be sour. Fairly thin and low carbonation. Amber, no head at all, slightly murky.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
0,33 l flaske fra "super market" ved hotellet, på altanen på Rhodos: nesten ikke skum. Lukter og smaker søtladent, som en mislykket sitronbrus. Huff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear pale golden with a fizzy, almost non-existent white head. Aroma is a bit limey and industrial-lagery. The taste has a sugary pop like a macro cider, but with a kiss of agave-tequila, with a bit of lime and calming, dry lagered biscuit. Is it crap? oh yeah...but I still kinda enjoy it in a weird way.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a smallish white head on there. Nose has a lot of citrus and lime, with just a hint of tequila to it. Taste is a little sweet, and more like a lime malt beverage. Too sweet for me.
