A: a dark golden color, filtered, poured a one finger width head quickly disappearing.
S: sweet floral arrangement. Very appealing to the nose. Almost like a blush wine.
T: oh my!! Not at all what I was expecting. Definitely not of the style. Bitter, sour, and the floral aroma is definitely there in the taste like rose but it throws the taste completely off.
M/D: medium bodied lite carbonation and the taste throws the mouthfeel. Overall very hard to drink and I will by tossing the rest of the beer.

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.
