ちなみに「甘い」の他の表現として「sugary」があります。こちらは「sweet」よりもさらに甘いニュアンスです。「甘ったるい」ですね。

  • It wasn't at all sweet

Not at all, it isn't at all = it is not really, it is not actually.
This phrase may be used in many diverse ways.
"James, I think you are in love with Bethany. Am I right?"
"Not at all! I find her attractive but I already have a girlfriend."
Or,
"Peter, how did you find your new workmate this morning?"
"Really, he's not at all to my liking. He has very bad breath and is not at all sociable.l"
Not at all, it isn't at all = it is not really, it is not actually.
This phrase may be used in many diverse ways.
"James, I think you are in love with Bethany. Am I right?" 
ジェームズ、君はベサニーと愛し合っているんだよね。
"Not at all! I find her attractive but I already have a girlfriend."
全然!彼女魅力的だとは思うけど、俺彼女いるし。
"Peter, how did you find your new workmate this morning?"
ペーター、職場の同僚さんどう思う?
"Really, he's not at all to my liking. He has very bad breath and is not at all sociable.l"
自分の好みではないね。臭いし、社交的じゃないんだもの。

  • I thought it would taste a lot sweeter.

この場合’a lot’ は比較級'sweeter'を強める役割をしています。
much sweeterとも書き換えられますね。

  • I had hoped it would live up to expectations...but its "not as sweet as it looks"

We often make comments on what we eat! and sometimes things
CAN LOOK GREAT, Yet fail to" tickle the palate" in the way we had hoped
or imagined.
Its is perfectly alright to voice slight disappointment, when this happens...
Sometimes a desert is simply...".Not as sweet as it looked"
Ps Why not try another;-))
食事についてコメントすることは多いでしょう。美味しそうに見えても、希望や予想したとおり"tickle the palate"(味覚をくすぐる)ものではないことがあります。
そのような場合には、少しがっかりしたことを声に出しても問題ありません。
デザートは単純に"Not as sweet as it looked"(見た目ほど甘くない)ことがあります。
Ps 他のものを試してみては?;-))

"This dessert was not sweeter than I thought." states that a dessert you had just eaten tasted not sweeter than you originally assumed.
This dessert was not sweeter than I thought.は、ちょうど今、食べたデザートが想定していたほど甘くはなかったという意味です。

In British English we can use the phrase 'not as .... as I thought' for many things that surprised us and was not as we expected it to be. For example:

"That movie was not as good as I thought"
"The food was not as bad as I thought it would be"
"It didn't make me as sad as I thought"
"I felt much more happier than I thought I would"
イギリス英語では、驚いたこと、期待通りでなかったことは「not as .... as I thought」を使って表せます。

例:
"That movie was not as good as I thought"
〔訳〕その映画は思ったほど良くなかった

"The food was not as bad as I thought it would be"
〔訳〕その食べ物は思っていたほどまずくなかった

"It didn't make me as sad as I thought"
〔訳〕思ったほど悲しい気持ちにならなかった

"I felt much more happier than I thought I would"
〔訳〕自分が思っていた何倍もうれしかった

Often desserts can look incredibly delicious. It can be easy to imagine in your mind and on your taste buds how it will taste and how deliciously sweet it will be. Often these thoughts are accompanied with disappointment as in fact, the dessert is "not as sweet as it looks!" Therefore when you have high expectations about a dessert or indeed anything the response can be it "it's not as ..... as it looked" eg it's not as hot as it looked.
デザートは見た目がおいしそうなものが多いです。見た瞬間甘くておいしい味が想像できます。こうした期待は多くの場合裏切られます。なぜなら、「思ったより甘くない!」

デザートに限らず何かに大きな期待を抱いているとき、その結果は "it's not as ..... as it looked"(思ったほど ..... でない)かもしれません。

例:
It's not as hot as it looked.(思ったほど辛くない)
