0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
New version of the infamous Desperados, with not just tequila flavour added, but also cachaça (Brazilian rhum) and guarana (a caffeine-producing South American plant popular in energy drinks and the like), as well as industrial citric acid - and the expected tons of sugar. Poured from a 50 cl can, it displays a pure but misty copper colour and a medium thick, off-white head with pinkish hue, sticky and more or less stable, though reduced to a lace and ’islands’ in the middle after a while. The nose gets industrial lemon juice from a bottle, ice tea, energy drink, orange lemonade, grenadine, brown rhum and a lot of white sugar, but nothing in the aroma even remotely says ’beer’. The taste is a lot like some Coca Cola Company soda pop: artificial sugary citrus combined with ascorbid acid. Strong carbo with minerally effect further adds to this effect. Energy drink (Red Bull style - a drink I have detested ever since it came onto the market) is apparent too, as a result of the guarana; in the finish, faint hints of rhum and perhaps vague tequila appear with a bitterish, artificial, chemical, somewhat wry effect which is only tempered by an awfully cloying sugary sweetness; the artifical acidity further dries the mouth. Again: almost no actual beer taste, just a weak hint of pale malts far away in the background. Of all the beer styles around, flavoured pale lagers from transparent longneck bottles or showy cans are by far my least favourite; I had expected this to be the worst beer I was ever going to taste, but it disgusted me just a little bit less than the regular version (I hasten to stress "a little bit"). Still: ghastly and only appealing to people who don’t actually like the taste of real beer. Very obnoxious too, the sweetness stuck to my teeth and palate for a very long time, blocking my abilities to taste real beers. One point off for ruining my evening!

Can @ RBBSG, 2014. Clear red, artificial color. Aroma of chemical lemonade. Same goes for the taste. Sucks big time.

Wait, is this really beer? It tastes more like a soda pop. As a soda I’d give this a 3.3. As a beer? Not so much.

Oranżada podszywająca się pod piwo. Da się pić, smak niezgorszy, ale po co to pić?

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from the international food store in Eastbourne. Pours out in a light ruby-pink-red colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of berries and cheap juice. Taste of artifical, too sweet strawberries, sugar, leaves, soda and artifical juice syrup. Awful stuff and absolutely undrinkable.

Bottle from @International Shop@ in Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Tough one. I mean, there are beers and there are fruit @beers@. Fruit beers should not be mentioned in the same sentence as a beer. This one makes no exception. It is a berry drink, artificial of course, mixed up with some alcohol. Trash.
