On draft in Paris (France, not Texas).I have to admit that of all the bad beers I have drank in my many years, this one is the worst. It is agressively bad. Whatever prompted me to select this beer must involve a huge dose of sadism. It was definitely my worst experience in Paris.

MarkoNm (400) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a clea rgolden color topped with average white head. Skunky aroma initially, followed by some malts and something that should be tequila. The taste is sweet, with a slight sour addition, finishing with a bit of bitterness. Metallic feel in the aftertaste.

dinkle50 (943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Tequila aroma that is sweet. Medium mouth. Taste is sweet with hints of sugar & tequila. Like a fruit soda with lime, tequila, sugar and not much else. Clear golden pout with a very thin fizzy head.

Its quite hard to rate this beverage is a beer. This delicate tequila taste makes it drinkable, but I cant think about it as a beer.

blackisle (582) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Clear yellow, minimal whitish head; aroma of lemon, orange, bubblegum, hint of tequila; heavy cloying sweetness; medium body, sticky texture; sweet finish, some alcohol. Not a beer imo.

penguinfinity (103) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Pale orange, head fades to a faint ring around the edge. Smells fruity. Tastes like soda. Ive had a lot worse, but this deserves a little more than a rating of 1 out of 100. At least 10... Id put it above the basic Bud/Coors/Miller stuff. Its basically a fruity Corona.

Silvan7 (633) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle @ home. Dorata, cristallina., schiuma bianca grossolana di persistenza brevissima. Aroma di caramello, agrumi ma industriali, e dolcificanti. Gusto stucchevole nessuna acidit per nulla amara. non ricorda una lager in nessun modo.

Kosmokrator (454) - ITALY - JUN 18, 2014
Limpido color giallo paglierino con un sottile velo di schiuma bianca che scompare quasi subito. Aroma debolmente fruttato e medicinale, sentori "chimici" di limone e poco altro; gusto dolciastro, zuccherino, sciropposo ma nonostante tutto gradevole con note mediamente intense di malto e limone. Corpo lieve, effervescenza gentile: come birra vale meno di zero (infatti ricorda pi una bibita) ma insolitamente piacevole e dissetante. Vien bene come bevanda estiva!

0,33 cl. Bar Eclipse. 05/2014. Cerveza clara tomada en botella, con tpico limn. Sabor ligero, muy parecido a una Shandy. Se puede apreciar un toque sutil a tequila. Aunque no es gran cosa, me la esperaba peor de sabor.
