another fine looking bottle here. the flavor is kind of subtle here. a bit sharp, a little wintergreen-ish, very carbonated and sorta creamy. not offensive in any way but not noteworthy really. gets some points for looking rad and making me want to drink it and junk. and i’d get it before a major label root beer, but not the best thing.

I thought this tasted so much like cream soda, It had no root beer flavor. I gave this a 20

 
Drew Fisher Says:

Definitely a spicy but interesting experience! Refreshing, right?! And memorable. Unfortunately, it is sweetened with HFCS.

 
TallTopper Says:

Really great, refreshing Root beer but so hard to find. Lots of flavor and a high-carbonation, very creamy texture. 9/10

The root beer taste is almost in the after taste. I can see how some would lower the rating score. Alot of root beer has too much carbonation and wintergreen. I see how the user score is higher than the Anthony score. Many reviewers "back East" like high carbonation and dont appreciate root beers with a syrupy taste, though the "original" root beer Hires was/is very syrupy. The corn syrup is unfortunate; sugar cane would have been nice, but producers like to save money. It beats Abita, which is made nearby. I give it a A-, near Bulldog root beer, which is probably the best Vanilla root beer made in the USA.
