Golden pour, pretty yellow actually; golden is kind of kind.
(I’m not a fan of golden beers. No real reason…biased against gold, yellow beers mainly because of its resemblance to something…else.)
No real “head” per se, just some carbonation bubbles that accumlated at the top VERY briefly.
I caught a faint scent of, seriously, pork chop. Yes, pork chop. (And no, no one was cooking.) But seemed to fade pretty fast.
There was a slight vanilla scent that remained, and that was nice.
Its bitterness kind of sticks for a while at the top, back of the mouth. There’s a slight creaminess to the feel, which is nice, but does a lot to point up the lingering aftertaste. Not a good end result.
Between this and a diet Pepsi, I’d take the Pepsi. Between this and a Bud light, it’s be a real tough call and I’d hem and haw a little, but I guess I’d settle for this.
