Transparent and honey gold in color with a thin, creamy ice sheaf and retracting lace on top. Vanilla rose and corn meet baby butter cream, grainy croissants and vanilla buttered marigolds for a spastic scented fury. Creamy flavor and mouthfeel indeed, but the corn is overwhelming. Fat free margarine likewise infiltrates the feel and flavor. Gourds get lined with cream corn grease and are then instinctively consumed with dipped tamale husks. Bitterness is heightened despite the apparent statistics, dolling to the tune of numbing in a pale lager likeness. Caramel corn with half the requisite sugar meets up with honey herbed, Cornish brown bread in the finish.
