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.

330 ml bottle with a slice of lime in it. Pale, fizzy golden with thin white head. Smell is lime and light grain. Taste is light grain with canned corn. Semi dry with low bitterness and high carbonation.

From bottle in Lille with KL 15.02.15. Clear and pale. Diminishing white head. Aroma and taste of 7UP, with bitterness of artificial sweeteners in aftertaste. More like a lemonade than a beer.

Review: Can of Desperados Beer: 5.9% ABV As a fan of tequila, and straight (none of that salt and lime shite), anything that has the devils juice in it has my backing. So Desperadoes is an interesting brew alright, one definitely to try. With an ABV of just under 6% giving it an added incentive. The appearance isn’t the best to be honest, pretty clear showing a golden orange colour with an initial decent frothy creamy head that dissipates quick enough. Some good lacing, but also dies soon after, looks like a lot of chemicals in this beer. There is a very strong smell as you would expect ,very very sweet, like a fruit juice, mostly of citrus. The taste has a very sweet and citrus taste to it, a bit tangy, tasting of lemon, lime and I guess Tequila. I say I guess because I’m not so sure of you can pick up the taste of the tequila. There is also an interesting deep sour aftertaste. Having said all that I have to say the beer isn’t that bad. Once you get over the initial shock at all the sweet tastes, you do grow into it, and it does become a relatively smooth enough beer to drink. I think these beers would be a great accompaniment to a night on the town, perhaps have two or three to give you a little kick in your drinking during the night, or before you hit the clubs. Any more than that and I’m not sure how they would go down. I don’t think I could drink more than two or three to be honest. But overall its a good effort and I like the idea of Desperadoes. Have I found the taste of the tequila? Not sure, but then does it matter, the beer has a certain function which is to set you up for the party or the night, and this beer does that perfectly. A good party beer.

From bottle. Golden colour. Clear. Horrific. Tastes like putting sweets in your mouth and then drinking lager.

Pekná pena, citrusová vôňa, v chuti cítiť citrón, tequilovú príchuť. Jedno sa vypiť dá, ale nie je to žiadna sláva, na pivo sa to len hrá. Mlaďasom to môže chutiť, pre mňa to nie je...

Couleur très limpide, mais un peu "pisse" à mon goût. On se demande si on parle de bière ou de limonade avec un arrière goût de bière... Bref : beurk !

Peu amateur de bières aromatisées, tournant soda, je la bois occasionnellement mais par plaisir très limité.

It is a very pale pale lager without aroma, hardly tasty... It is very weak, no doubt. It is a fact, you must distrust a see-through bottle.

Not much of a beer. Almost no head at all. Very sweet, metallic taste. Resembles to a cheap citrus cleaner.
