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.

Finally gave in and bought a 50 cl can at Franprix. A favorite of French teens. Smells like Mt. Dew!!!!! Yellow with bubbles. Tastes like a Margarita with Sprite. And the ice cubes have melted. It’s not beer, but I like it!

Bottle 580 ml. Does it really smell or taste like tequila? Not sure, but it’s not that bad nonetheless. If you want something different from an average lager - sure. If you want something good - better search elsewhere.

Drank from the bottle, a piss light yellow color with offensive tequila, and corn and cereal aromas flavors are horrible, not good, this was given tome as a joke from a friend, butchery it’s a tick, and at least I didn’t pay for it. Would not revisit this even if you paid me to.

Desperados, die Mutter aller Partybiere. Ich denke unweigerlich an sturztrunkene Touristen an spanischen Stränden, zerbrochene Flaschen auf vermüllten Straßen, an Abifahrt und Faschingsrausch. Wer möchte diesen Lifestyle nicht? Die durchsichtige Flasche ist schonmal ein deutliches Statement - hier geht’s nicht ums Bier. Na dann, auf die Pulle und weg das Zeug. Riecht tierisch künstlich nach Zuckerschnaps. Schmeckt auch so. Pappig süß, im Abgang hoppla, war das etwa Malz? Wenn einem Cola nicht süß genug ist, greift zu Desperados.

In Legado de Yuste glass. Playing Magic 2015. How thought than giving the disgusting flavor of tequila to a beer could be a good idea?

Smells mostly of lemon candy, very artificial, with some well-hidden lagery notes; frankly, I can’t say I can sense tequila in this. Pours yellow, with a big, unstable head. As for the taste, it does seems as if they made an effort to mask the amount of sugar with sourness, but I wouldn’t say they were very successful. Body almost homeopathic, made up for by generous carbonation; finish sweet if any. A well watered down, copiously sweetened fizzy drink with a bit of artificial lemon flavouring and alcohol.

Bortled from Systembolaget Golden with a brief, white head. Artificial, sweet and citric aroma and flavour. Rather revolting.

Falsa mexicana fabricada en Francia, con mucha polémica por confudir al consumidor al imitar la botella a las más típicas botellas mexicanas. Con aroma de Tequila, dicen. Probar y tirar. Un engaño comercial en toda regla. Huele a algo así como a gominola y sabe a cualquier cosa menos a cerveza.

Bottle. Watery, dull and boring. Extremely unimpressed. I did expect much more. High carbonation... terribly unappealing and uncomfortable, since it is not accompanied by any good beer taste.

Nice golden colour.Tequila doesn?t come as hard as your would think.. kinda sour-ish taste, goes great with a lemon inside. Gives a nice summer vibe

I’ve drink this beverage a few years ago and thought that was good.Tried last week again and won’t buy this drink again. Is not even beer and is not even good at all.Just artificial flavored water with alcohol.
