Always assumed this was a Latino product until I read the fine print...french...NFW!
Certainly more honey golden than pale in color. ecent head and lacing holds it's own.
Mostly lime ( sorry BA's that called it Lemon...Lime is the natural bed-mate of Tequila Sheila)..with a hint of sweet malr in the background.
Too be perfectly honest it tastes more like one of those Tequila coolers than a beer infused with tequila. Some of that salty tequila twang mixed in with a heathly doese of lime. Any sort of beer/malt flavour doesn't make itself known until the after taste. Finishes dry, but long after that initial taste.
Other than an intial lime bite @ the front end it has a decent, almost refereshing feel.
Not sure I'd put this in the Euro Plae Lager category, but then where do you put it? Have to admit it would be killer served ice cold on a 30 celcius Medicine July afternoon, but then again I could probably make my own from some Kokanee. a splas of Tequila, and some store bought tequila lime mixer.

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.
