the honey sweetening gives this a different flavor than the rest. whether that is bad or good is up to the drinker i suppose, the first time i had it, i didn’t like it mch, but on the second try i grew to think it pretty yummy in a weird way. if they put a bit less honey i may like it even more i think. no real bite at all, it goes down smooth.

I ordered this stuff online with some others. After the disappointment of the last root beer I had I wasn't having high hopes for this one. WOW! was I wrong this stuff was delicious! The taste of honey hit me on my first sip. I only ordered one bottle, I think in the future I could get a case ad enjoy it. Great stuff.

Yuck!! I bought a second bottle of this just to make sure that I did not get a bad bottle. Unfortunately, this root beer just down right sucks. The initial taste is what you'd expect from a craft root beer…. not bad. Then the after taste hits you with this gross, bitter, earwax flavor…. yuck!! I don't know why some root beers struggle with the bitter part, but this one definitely does. If they could get rid of the bitter after-taste, then I think I could possibly give this like a high 70. Other than that I really could not finish more than 3 gulps because the bitter after taste was just that bad. So, I'd have to give this one a 54. Don't buy!!!!!

I gave this a 50, I was no impressed and it had a nasty after taste.
