Product Description

  • Beer with Flavourings and Tequila
  • What is the Desperados® 5L DraughtKeg system? The Desperados® 5L DraughtKeg system is a 5 litre keg format that contains 5 litres of Beer with an integrated carbon dioxide cartridge. This enables consumers to drink fresh quality draught which they can pour themselves.
  • How is the Desperados system different from other mini kegs? The first key difference is that the product is poured under consistent pressure, right down to the last glass via a patented internal pressure system. This differs from basic 5L keg formats which dispense through the force of gravity. The second main difference is that the product is poured via a tap handle from the top of the keg to give consumers the experience of pouring themselves.
  • How should the keg be operated? Operational instructions and diagrams are included on all 5L kegs. As instructed kegs must be refrigerated for 10 hours before tapping. The tap and nozzle are assembled and clicked into place on the top of the keg. The glass should be held at a 45 degree angle and the handle should be pulled fully forward.
  • The first pouring contains additional foam? The first glass will often contain additional foam because the line in the keg is filled with C02 gas and not yet with product. This should be eliminated while pouring the second glass provided the product has been correctly refrigerated. If the keg has not been cooled properly, the keg may continue to produce foam.
  • How long can the keg be kept for? Once opened the keg can be kept for 30 days provided it continues to be refrigerated, however always check the best before date on the top rim of the keg.
  • The keg is making a rattling sound, like something is floating inside? Occasionally the CO2 cartridge can dislodge from the bottom of the keg. This has no influence on performance or quality of the product.
  • ABV: 5.9%
  • AROMA:
  • Fresh cut pinewood, lemon and lime, with a hint of tequila.
  • Citrus zest, woody and lime juice.
  • Sherbet tang, lively and refreshing.
  • Dry and woody reminiscent of cranberry juice but with lime.
  • Fish tacos or fajitas with guacamole.
  • 20 years ago, Desperados was born of “wild experimentation” when our master brewer remixed the rules combining beer and tequila, creating a brand new beer+ segment!
  • Desperados is not an alcopop or a mixed drink, it is a beer made of beer and tequila flavour distilled from agenuine tequila sourced from Mexico.
  • Whether it's a festival in zero gravity (Bass Drop) or a house party turned on its head (House Party Plugged), Desperados promote “wild experimentation” in music by amplifying creativity, keeping music diverse and fun!
  • Desperados is the world's first Tequila Flavoured Beer. A distinctive combination of full bodied lager with a boost of Tequila flavour. A light & refreshing taste profile balanced with spicy and lemony notes for sweetness
  • Lime and citrus notes, a sherbet spritz and just a hint of tequila makes Desperados the ultimate, refreshing party drink
  • Pack size: 5L
