Poured a 341-ml bottle into a draught glass.
Appearance - light golder colour with a quickly dissolved white head. Reduced to thin suface bubbles with a thin ring of lace. Looks restaurant-esque where they serve this product by the bucketful.
Smell - fresh, inoffensive light malt smell. The scent gives away the fact that this is going to be one sweet beer. Thin corn syrup aroma sets the tone.
Taste - pretty balanced up front and then the decent malt taste comes in with a wave of cotton-candy sweet syrupy flavour. Not a lot of hops but what is there dries out the saliva reaction to all that sugar.
Mouthfeel - fairly soft on the palate overall, but the carbonation that is there covers the flavour and there's a delay in picking up the character. I'm sure this is a reason for how this stuff is so popular.
Drinkability - there's no question that this is highly quaffable if you suspend all interest in complex flavours. The sweetness for me definitely gets annoying and is probably the cause of much vomiting over the years, along with the bad pizza that accompanied the night of binging. This one has the advertising juggernaut behind it though so it will be a mainstay for many for years to come.
