Richness of a universe, power of a name, refreshing tasting, Desperados is a generous beer with the typified taste.

Beer with tequila barrel aged lager and natural flavor.

Satyroneto (150) - BRAZIL - DEC 4, 2014
Cor de ouro envelhecido, bem translúcida. Espuma branca de média formação e baixa persistência com bom lacing no início, depois não há espuma e portanto não há lacing. Aroma doce e enjoado de tequila, limão artificial e cacto. Sabor muito doce e enjoado seguindo o aroma; retrogosto doce e enjoado de tequila; corpo médio e carbonatação de média para alta. Refrescante. Quem toma isso??

Can: Clear gold with a small white head. Scent is lime, grain. Taste is sweet grain, lime/lemon. Watery...corn... Tequila? mmmm....a slight alcohol dryness and the words on the label, coupled with the power of suggestion....maybe. Pretty dismal.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1B, adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 4166528X1319. AROMA: artificial lemony type aroma that overpowers everything else. very poor tequila aroma. APPEARANCE: golden color and translucent. thin white head with poor retention. TASTE: sweet flavour with lemony notes. low bitterness with a sweet finish and a very faint cactus-like note. PALATE: medium-light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a "tequila flavoured" lager with a lemon aroma and taste that overpowers everything, including the illusive tequila.

Goudgeel helder bier met witte schuimkraag. Zoetig in de neus met limoentoets. Kunstmatige fruitsmaken in de mond. Tequilafles heeft er langs gestaan veronderstel ik?

On tap at a restaurant in Paris (my wife ordered it). Looks like a normal pale lager, champagne bubbles. Aroma is sweet and artificial smelling. Taste is gut wrenchingly sweet with some weird margarita like taste. I had had this before in a can and had assumed it was some sort of flavored malt beverage and not an actual beer. I was shocked to find that this was actually a beer as all you get is that weird sweet flavor and virtually no otherwise normal, even bad, beer flavors.

Bottle, "brewed" in the Netherlands. Lime-like soda aroma with a bare hint of pale lager, a weird gurkin note as well. Pale golden, low carbonation, low head. Sugary entry, artificial fruit aromas, like a soda, bareest hint of hop bitterness. Quick lime finish, thankfully not too sticky. Well, could have been worse, but all in all a unneccesary drink.

una delle peggiori combinazioni al mondo. Nč birra nč tequila. Pessima in tutto

Birra semplice, nessun odore se non mais e tequila, limonata. In bocca il.sapore č lo stesso, povero. Buona frizzantezza, niente di eccezionale.

330 ml bottle bought at 7-Eleven in Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear dull golden amber colour; Half-finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Very good sticky lacing and very fizzy carbonation; Strong aroma of radler-like shandy, with light malt, sugar, lime, light pungent hops and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of fairly light malt, with strong shandy, light lime, very light tequila, light alcohol, lemon and very light grass; Light body, thin palate; Mouth feel is almost like a well-tasted Shandy - good lemon and lime background, fairly low sweetness despite the explicit sugar contents, dull grassy hops. Notable, liquor-like booze with flashes of tequila. Taste alright but a tad too light to be called a Tequila beer… Hoppiness is lime, lemon and faintly-skunked light grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is mostly from tequila booze, really low from hops for an abrupt, low bitter finish; Slightly after taste, fairly easy and quite liquor-ish to mouth.

Comments: Got to be fair with this one: it’s actually a really good Radler in looks, smell and taste, and if it was marketed as a Radler I will certainly rate it highly. This is a Tequila lager, though, then I have to say it’s tequila factor is too light to be influential, despite its likability. A casual one.
