A tame shake and an easy pop of the cap, the perfume of burnt cow juice and stale coffee fills the nose. The flavor is no better, a slightly bitter roast aquatically diluted with only passing suggestions of cream, sipping dispassionately and maladroitly. Being diet, there are only three grams of sugar and an unknown and ineffective quantity of sucralose. Everything from your first sip to the last is a struggle, and no doubt if bought fresh would you throw this back at the 'barista,' tell them to work at Dunkin' Donuts, and look elsewhere for a decent brew. If you have your heart set on a low calorie coffee concoction, drink it black.
This should have the buzz of any eleven ounce coffee, but unfortunately yet not surprisingly, it is even weaker than some six ounce javas. To end, Starbucks Low Calorie Iced Coffee is perhaps the most nonsensical drink in this most nonsensical line.
