Type: Root Beer Comes In: 12oz glass bottle
Available: RI

Obtained in: spike’s hotdogs, providence, RI by Rob
Head: Medium Sweetener: cane sugar
Caffeine: No

a present from friend and fellow root beer lover Rob Base when he visited Providence. it is sort of unique i guess. do you know when you have some “Sugar In The Raw” for the first time or at least the first time in a while? you think it is great stuff and you want to buy it for your house all the time. but then you eat some more and it kinda gets gross. that is how i feel about most root beers that use pure cane sugar. it is a good taste for about 1/2 the bottle then it tastes kind of syrupy and junk. i think if i was drinking it with a meal it would be more enjoyable but just drinking it i am not amazed. not saddened or grossed out though.

There is also Spike's in MA for the record, at the corner of Brighton Ave. and Linden St. in Allston.

I agree with the review though, keep up the good work.

Since it's made by Empire, I am surprised it's not better.
