Desperados is a tequila-flavoured beer with refreshing citrus notes. Its recipe includes water, malted barley, hops and yeast.
Despite its Spanish name, 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, apparently the brewers couldn't find a name for their new beer despite their 'desperate' search for one!
This tequila-flavoured beer is ideal to accompany meals with exotic tastes, such as Mexican dishes, sushi and sashimi with wasabi and light wok dishes. The bitterish taste pairs well with spicy foods. Try it with a wedge of lemon or lime.
