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.

Aroma is corona-ish. Flavor is a sickening artificial sweetness that lingers like smirnoff. Not a fan.

I’m probably going to regret this. Yep. Clear yellow body with a white head. Aroma is fruity and mediciney. Taste is sickly sweet. No bitterness. Very thin and watery. Not what a beer should be.

Pours a clear amber with an OK white head. Strong, crisp aroma has a fruity undertone. Flavor is malty, but fruity and rather sweet, better than most pale lagers. Smooth texture is fairly firm, if not too fizzy. Refreshing, if you’re not in the mood for a beer that is too complex.

Does not taste horrible. But it’s not good. Nothing that I’ll ever buy again.

Bottle. Clear orange, still with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet lemonade, spearmint, generic cocktail, maybe tequilla as advertised. Body is medium, quite foamy, touch of spritz. Taste is sweet lemonade, lager shandy. Drinkable, inoffensive.

Een bier zonder veel smaak aan, goed als dorstlesser, maar daar stopt het dan ook bij.

8/18/14. 12oz bottle from Winn Dixie. Happy first day of school for the year! Clear dark golden pour with a small frothy off-white head that separates and fades to nothing pretty quickly. The skunk hit me before I even poured. Skunky aroma, just a touch of lemon and lime... not much else. Whoa, sweet flavor. Sweet lemon and lime, sugary, skunky and bitter, lingering chemically bitterness. Gross.

Bottle 0.33 l. Clear pale golden liquid, average white head. Aroma of artificial lemon aroma for baking and tequila. Too sweet. Drinkable but could be much better without so much of fake lemon and sugar. Light body. Medium to high carbonation.

330ml clear bottle, poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear straw colored with a medium sized white beige head that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of cleaning detergent and corn. Flavours of lime, lemon zest, wheat bread and corn. Taste is light-medium sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, thin watery texture and average carbonation. Overall an awful beer, aroma is similar to cleaning detergent, artificial and chemically citrusy.Tastes similarly citrusy and artificial, some off flavours I can’t identify that could maybe be the Tequila. Also not refreshing because of the sweetness. A faux Mexican beer presumably trying to ride on the success of Corona, but Desperados is shockingly worse than anything I had out of Mexico.

Botella 33cl. Cerveza de color dorado y transparente. Pierde en seguida la espuma y no deja estela de carbónico. Suave de sabor y con aroma ligeramente a tequila (¿?) aunque el sabor y olor que deja es a cítrico. Sin pena ni gloria.
