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.

15cl bottle. Clear golden with no head. Lime aroma. Flavor is sweet, lime. More juice than beer.

Sweet, served with a slice of lemon, the smell of tequila is there but not the taste which is a good thing for me...

Bottle. If this beer had been in a brown bottle it might have had some potential. Clear gold color. Really nice, quickly disappearing head. aroma, wat too much skunk. Taste, way too much skunk.

On Tap at Club des Pins. In a similar league to Corona, although being made locally and available on tap does afford a freshness that bottles/cans cannot reproduce. Faint hop aroma, with very mild bitterness, which sells well on a hot day at the beach.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 I remember drinking a lot of this and thinking it was wonderful when it was first in the uk - however I was 18 and still all about going out and drinking as much beer as physically possible then. I’ve avoided this for a long time but my friend bought me a bottle last night. I wasn’t offered a glass and it had a wedge of lime in it. Aroma is lime, malt and corn. Taste is very sickeningly sweet, lime, lemon, fruit, very artificial. A glance at the ingredients list may give rise to why it tastes so artificial. Very sticky. Not good stuff.

Yikes. Skunky, with some lime aroma that only seemed to enhance the skunky aroma. Very sweet flavor, to the point of being cloying. Could not finish.

I am totally not objective when I rate the overall of this drink because I am found of the taste. Ok this is not a beer but this really good :)

RW80 (582) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
0.33l bottle. Appearance: Clear light golden with medium white thin head. Aroma: Sweet artifical candy aroma and a little bit of lime.(but misses the freshness that fresh lime has.) Taste: Is very sweet alcopop like, (reminding of shandy, allthough I’ve had better Shandy’s), with a hint of cheap booze (Which says Tequlla on the bottle) spicyness alcohol in the finish. fizzy carbonation, thin body, sticky feel

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a very pale light golden with nary a head Aroma has some artificial candy aroma, perhaps a hint of lime. Flavor is reminiscent of hard green candy - not lemon or lime - just green. A slight hint of margarita freshens it up a bit. Mouthfeel is distant and slightly metallic. Glad I waited until I could purchase this as a single rather than fork over $9.99 for a six at Publix!
