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.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 25.04.15. Clear golden. Diminishing white head. Aroma of lemonade, lime juice, bitter lemon and pepper. Similar taste, with some bitterness in aftertaste.

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.

Flaske, delt med Ovesen: klar gylden med tett hvitt skum. Sitronlukt (som i oppvaskmidler). Sitronbrus med en knivsodd pepper i smaken, ganske så søt. Ettersmaken er mer som et belegg på tunga. Spesiell, men ikke helt ille. Takk til Anders F som hadde kjøpt den til meg på flyplassen i Gdansk.

what the heck is this? I’ve never had a pale lager with such a strong sugary sweet flavor. I don’t know about any tequila barrel flavor, more of a sweet lime juice and beer concoction, candy sweet, weird bitterness at finish. awful, just awful.

Innocuous appearance with a slightly vegetal sweet aroma that carries into the flavour. Not a fan I’m aftraid.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Nice sweet beer. The slice of lemon complimensts this beer. It is perfect combined with tapas. The beer has a nice sweetness with a touch of bitterness. However, it is not very special.

futre7 (196) - Taipei, TAIWAN - APR 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2015 Just tastes like a weak lager and lime with a dash of washing up liquid in it ( you know the taste when the glass wasn’t rinsed properly). I love lager and lime so I won’t be overly critical. That said I would rather make my own out of much cheaper and better beer ( this stuff aint cheap ) and my own cordial. I am now off to get a solid Pilsner and some lime to show them how it’s done.

Flaska systembolaget. Klar guldaktig vätska. Brödig doft med lime . Söt, lätt sliskig smak. Vatten med ett stänk limejuice i. Funkar när man är törstig. Lite trocadero Inget man spottar ut ändå. Funkar helt klart bättre när den dricks direkt ur flaska

This beer looks ok but is really bad, terrible aroma of tequila and citrus that remind me of dish cleaning, horrible taste.

It has a funny bottle and the beer looks really great, but it tastes like not much.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Oh I’m really not liking this smell, artificial lemons and tequila. I’m actually afraid to taste this. Sweet taste with lemons and some tequila. Very artificial. Lemons dominate the flavour profile. Not my thing at all.
