if you are going to make a root beer taste like licorice, it should be like this one. i don’t know if i would choose to do such a thing but i honestly am quite a big fan of how they pulled this off. not strong or overpowering or anything, but it is definitely there and you taste it. a very enjoyable root beer that does not have the generic or usual taste to it. and it has a really nice head on it. creamy and smooth all the way.
Ingredients:carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, caramel color, sodium benzoate (a preservative), natural and artificial flavor and citric acid

Did you know Olde Brooklyn is now made with cane sugar. Much better I feel.

It's amazing to me how people like Anthony like this root beer and I coudn't finish it and we also like a lot of the same ones.
Well that's how it is I guess.

i really feel like they changed the recipe or something, i did really like it years ago, but got a 4 pack at Marshall's recently and it was dreak. weird.

I gave this a 40, my wife said it was pretty good, she liked it better than me. I thought it was weak and lacking in flavor.

I just tried it recently in which it is made with cane sugar, and it was just decent. I think it had a somewhat unpleasant-strong carbonation, and the flavor was just very generic……. but in a good way. I give it an 83.
