    Who amoungst us knows about Desperados? These things came right out of the blue...

    http://www.desperadosbeer.co.uk/index.asp

    I'm too high/drunk to really explain myself properly here, but a friend of mine recently introduced me to Desperados, these little fuckers are light corona like beer with a dash of tequila. Yes, it may sound like the gayest beer you have ever heard of, but you need to try these things.

    If it's a warm Sunday afternoon and you're out in the garden with a few close friends drunkenly cooking a BBQ, put down that stella, crack a few bottles of these bad boys, kick back in a deckchair and skin up. You'll understand. I've not been this taken with a beer since a I was introduced to Dragon by some Jamaican people who I couldn't really understand.

    Things about 5.9%, no tramp juice here, just refreshing drunken goodness.

    I have found a place that'll sell me 24 for £23, it's all working out well.

    I love Desperados, it's probably one of my favourite alcoholic drinks. Brought back like 6 crates from France when I last went.

    Yeah if you really knock em back it can get pretty sickly. I'm just loving having it with meals and relaxing in the garden in the evening, it's not suitable for drinking yourself into a stupour (maybe popping a few Tramadol and staggering about the house. You know who you are.), but there's other stuff for that...

    I'm somehow encouraged that it's been around a while, it means there are many beers left to discover. Anybody care to throw a few "interesting" beers out there? Not just your favourites (although we're looking for positives here...), but curious ones. Funny names, tastes,whatever. Probably had threads on it before but maybe do another...

    these guys made the worlds strongest beer. then the germans made a stronger beer. so these guys made an even stronger beer and called it "sink the bismark". it is 41%
