1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from JDW Square Peg; tastes of high alchohol shandy only purchased because it was 2 for £5, It was refreshing though.

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

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Een bier zonder veel smaak aan, goed als dorstlesser, maar daar stopt het dan ook bij.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

ha, ideaal BBQ biertje, smaakvol ´bier´ met tequila smaakstoffen, bleek maar drinkt prima weg in deze context.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Trendy, tequila-flavoured designer beer trying to benefit from the - incomprehensible - success of Corona Extra. Has penetrated into Belgium from France and is especially popular in nightlife environments, which have spawned many an infernal beer in transparent longneck bottles. Sweetish, thin, very bland and to add insult to injury, flavoured with a very unpleasant tequila taste - not even real tequila, but a kind of industrial extract of it. There are only a few styles of beer I truly hate, and tequila- or otherwise flavoured bland pale lagers is certainly one of them. Stands a good chance of earning the title of ’worst beer I ever had’ - but then, there are some notorious contenders.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: 2/10. This beer stinks like bad marijuana, skunk, but then after a minute the aroma improves to pine and citrus. I’m rating it 2/10 for initial aroma, but the final aroma earns... well, a 4/10. Not bad.
Appearance: 2/5. Lager yellow with a white, lingering head, clear.
Taste: 7/10. This... was a happy surprise. The flavour is almost like an apple cider, with a definite fruity sweetness and wonderful citrusey, flowery hopping, with a definite note of ginger in there. If this had been served blind I’d swear I was drinking a dry cider. An awful, awful smelling, but good tasting cider. Finish lingers with the tequila flavoring.
Palate: 3/5. It’s lager. Lively on the tongue, active in the back with strong notes of apple on the roof of the mouth, and a lingering moderate tequila finish.
Overall: 9/20. If only something could be done about this awful, awful skunky marijuana smell when it’s first opened, this would be a 14/20 with a more agreeable smell. But as a hot-weather drink, or a session, or as a fun substitute for cider, this would kick ass. Don’t let the low rating fool you; this *is* worth a drink or two, especially if you like cider.
