Aloe Vera Beauty drink?

First of all my apologies. I haven't posted a lot. It is a bit tricky for the moment, as I am with my own mobile devices just via 3G online. The hotel doesn't have free wifi (I am just online with the company PC and that means no personal stuff...) and we are living in a completely new building- landbased telecommunication will (hopefully) set up in the next days.

I have though already written several posts offline- some quite controversial and will post them soon...

Back to the besuty drink. I have picked up this in one normal hypermarket. The brand is Thai Choice, a producer which usually offers all sorts off Asian ingredients from - from a like "alemongrass puree" to z like "zoya sauce". Sorry it is too late for doing better jokes
...

Anyway - I chilled it nicely, popped it open (which was harder than expected) and tasted it.

NOSE:
Faint honey smell - with the slightest greenush vegetal hint.

TONGUE:
Oh wow, sweet. Very sweet. Simple syrup sweet! It taste like simple syrup/agave syrup with a dash of honey... amost no acidity...

MOUTHFEEL:
Besides of the overwhelming mouthcoaing sweetness, you have tiny bits of aloe vera gel. Which impeoves the overal impression - but not enough.

VERDICT:
I am not sure, why the producer calls this beauty drink. Maybe due to cultural differences - maybe the producer thinks fat people = beautiful?
Or do they think, that aloe vera makes evetything beautiful? Think coke with aloe = beauty-coke or pork fat with aloe = beauty lard?
Anyway - I usually like sweet things, but this drink is even for me unbearable! And uninteresting!

If you really want to use aloe, buy the gel and mix it yourself... just got a great idea: beauty-g&t!
