A 330ml clear glass bottle with a BB of Dec 2014. Picked up a little while back from a B&M store. Another relatively new contender for the flavoured-beer market - the creation of Desperados truly opened Pandora's box....

Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A clear golden colour with light carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before collapsing to a thin surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of faint grainy malt with hints of artificial fruit notes, sweetener, vague solvent, weak overcooked veg and stewed leaves. Hard to describe but it smells weird (and not in a good way).

Tastes of sweet fruity hints with a harsh, artificial finish. Notes of tutti-frutti, sweetener, faint solvent, mild stewed leaves and overdone veggies. Quite sweet, followed by a subtle yet acrid bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with effervescent carbonation and a thin, watery body. Aftertaste of fruity notes and harsh solvent/stewed leaves.

Eeesh - I'm almost curious to know what's in this but then again maybe not. It's pretty gross. Looks average enough, with a subtle fruity aroma that doesn't bode well. The flavour is mostly reminiscent of tutti-fruitti gum along with twinges of solvent and stewed leaves. Unpleasant off-notes lurk in the background. Watery, insubstantial body. The one thing it doesn't taste or smell of is bourbon; not even close. Horrid - I have a hard time imagining anyone wanting to have more than one of these. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss.
