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.

It is a mexican style beer from France. How good could this be? Well, it wasn’t that bad actually. I liked this beer but only under certain conditions. #1 Ice cold. #2 only have a few This is a great beer on a hot day but if you want to sit down and enjoy a beer that you would bother to rate on this site, you should probably move along to a different beer. If you want a beer that will satisfy you when you have been working all day and you need a beer...now...this will work just fine.

Bottle, 37.5cL. Home. A pale clear golden yellow beer with a medium white head. Poor retention. Aroma of lemon(ade), orange, alcohol. Medium sugary sweet, very light bitter note. Light body, thin sticky texture, fizzy carbonation, sweet acute finish. Overall, memories of my youth : a "lemonade-beer", very light.

Let’s start with the good (there aren’t what many). It looks good, super pale with a creamy white head. Well that was it the rest bad. Taste was horrible sweet like a soda mixed with a snippet of beer Do not buy.

By far the best French knockoff of a Mexican lager I’ve ever had. If only they made crappy flavored variations like Bud Lite does it would be perfect! Oh wait, they do!

Desperados nie smakuje tequilą, lecz smakuje desperadosem. Chociaż smak w porządku.

2 150ml bottles, smells fruity, taste is sort of sickly sweet with faint malt & lots of lemon/lime bitterness, sort of a sweet liqueur/beer mix & once was enough

Cerveja leve, com sabor de tequila. Cerveja sem compromisso. Carbonatada e refrescante

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.
