Desperados is one of the most popular beers among the younger generation. It is a light, tequila-flavoured **beer with refreshing citrus notes on a bitterish aftertaste. Its recipe includes water, malted barley, hops and yeast.

Despite its Spanish name, the Desperados comes from France and is produced by the Brasserie Fischer group, owned by Heineken. Its commercialization began in Brussels in 1995. But why Desperados? Well, legend has it, that the brewers could not find a name for their new beer to the point of being 'desperate'!

This Lager with tequila beer is ideal to accompany meals with exotic tastes, such as Mexican dishes, sushi and sashimi with wasabi and light wok. The bitterish taste, in fact, manages to dampen the taste of spicy foods. Try it with a slice of lemon.

El simple diseño de la botella ya augura un disfrute de la misma, un aroma refrescante, un color dorado insuperable... Y el sabor... Servida con una rodaja de limón en la boca de la botella, hace de esta cerveza una experiencia inolvidable, disfrutando cada trago como si fuese el último. ¿Cómo disfrutarla aún mas? Después de un largo día de trabajo, sediento y pegando un buen trago de esta. ¡Ojo con bebérsela de un trago!
Una de las mejores.
