A-Colorful Latin-themed happy-can with image of seals along the top made to look like medals. Pours a light clear gold with white head. Decent retention, bits of tracing.
S-This reminds me of margarita or mojito flavored chewing gum. Yes, I know, mojitos have rum, but there's that strong artificial lime aroma that dominates. I'm craving nachos.
T-The kid in me says "I like the sweet fruity flavor," but the BA adult in me cries "who would drink this," and "what is this swill?!" But to speak ill of this beer is equivalent to self-defamation...I used to like this stuff a long time ago, but my tastes have changed. It is beer for kids. In fact, I recall a little kid, probably 4, finishing off the last bit of a bottle left on his parents' table once, setting it down, and saying, "Mmm, that's good!" Sweet, citrusy (lemon/lime), just a touch of hops in the finish. I think I taste tequila, but only because it reminds me of margarita mix out of a plastic jug dumped into Bud.
M-Moderate carbonation, light-bodied. Cloyingly sweet and borderline syrupy.
D-Like I said, I used to find these highly drinkable, but then I grew facial hair. Might go well with nachos and guacamole, but not better than a real margarita or a decent lager.

Desperados Tequila flavored Beer
.33 L bottle
€3,50 @ Dos Pescados, Berlin, Germany
First off, is this beer made with Tequila or not? The packaging reads both "Tequila Flavored Beer" and "Flavoured with Tequila" - not necessarily the same thing. However their website clearly states "Desperados is a beer flavoured with Tequila". Somehow I think it's a "tequila" flavoring. And that there's some lime flavoring added as well.
With that said, it was better than I thought it would be, but I didn't think it tasted like Tequila mixed into beer. On the other hand, I've never mixed Tequila and beer so I can't really say. There was some odd "woodiness" to it, and the previously noted lime, but not what I'd call "Tequila". Maybe cheap Tequila...
Overall I'd have to say that this is just a gimmicky beverage that will run its course and disappear shortly. Of course you never know. I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're like me and you just have to try it to see what it's like I can give the go ahead for that. You probably won't want a second one, but it is easy to drink and you won't have any trouble finishing it.
