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.

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.

This just sucked. It’s appearance, aroma, taste, and palate all sucked. Overall, it just sucked.

R4N5H (636) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
33cl bottle at Undercurrent, Amsterdam on 19-May-2016. Clear pale amber colour. Fizzy and light bodied. Fruity aroma. Lime cordial flavour, with a sweetness that overpowers the beer. Light bittersweet sticky finish. Couldn’t drink more than half a bottle and moved quickly to something else. More of an alcopop or a shandy than a beer - surprised that it is 5.9% ABV.

Vighals (2712) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2016
Gulbrun klar med lavt hvitt skum. Lukter lime og noe korn. Søtlig lime og noe karamell i smak. Kort. Svært lett bitterhet i avslutningen.

Maits (45) - ESTONIA - MAY 4, 2016
Golden color, frothy white head, which not stayed. Sweet aroma, reminds some limonade. To osweet taste, artificial or chemical taste. Overall, not so good at all.

Served in a pint glass from a 500ml can. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma is of lime and sour apple (an attempt to recreate tequila’s aroma?). Taste is sickly sweet with bitter lime and sour notes. Watery body with medium carbonation and lingering bitter aftertaste. Horrible stuff for a beer supposedly infused with tequila. Poured the rest into the sink with no regrets.

Evilman (34) - Taverny, FRANCE - APR 24, 2016
UPDATED: APR 26, 2016 An okay one for casual drinking with your friends or waiting for your favorite band to play when you’re outside during the openers. Still not great, and you can get better for the same price if not cheaper. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Najpijalniejsze z Desperadosów, warto wzbogacić picie o cytrynę. Słaba piana, bliższa raczej tequili niż piwu. Przezroczysta butelka - trzeba na to uważać. Nie należy oczekiwać od tego piwa niczego więcej, niż ze skrzyżowania zwyczajnego lagera z tequilą. Tylko i aż - to wszystko. Wbrew pozorom - mocniejsze od przeciętnego lagera.

Robe jaune dorée, odeur sucrée, fruitée. Goût : citron omniprésent, tequila quasi inexistant tout comme l’amertume. A boire pour boire !

Nonsenzio (57) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
Overly sweet and synthetic. This needs a lot of lemon to counter the unbalanced palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at DSG’s 10K rating celebration tasting at Dancing Camel, Tel Aviv. Thanks avrashi. Clear light golden with white head. Aroma of lime and apple. Very sweet flavor, weird bitterness with notes of lime and apple. Light-bodied.
