Poured out as a nice looking golden color with a thin white head on top. The smell of this beer is... Cotton Candy, how they did it I'll never know but it smell like a fresh bag of of the stuff liquefied and put into a glass. The taste of the beer is super sweet and again tastes just like real cotton candy, there isn't much going on in way or malts or hops though which will probably hinder most peoples thoughts on this. The mouthfeel was smooth with some light carbonation to it. Overall, I was impressed. It was super sweet and I'm not sure how much I'd want to drink of this if they were mass produce it. However, it was something really fun to get a sample of and try.
