A straight-forward and sharp root beer with quite a bit of bite. However, the bite fades pretty quick. This root beer probably could have benefited from a bit of nuance. Give me some vanilla, give me some more wintergreen, something besides the spice kick.
I also wonder if cane sugar would have helped this out. It usually adds a bit of caramel to the body of the drink.
This root beer is by no means offensive, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. I thought the flavor might be a bit too simple, but as we know, I prefer a more robust brew. It’s a 6 out of 10.
They have a website, so check ’em out. This might be one I come back to for a re-taste.
