so many people recommended this brew to me that i decided i had to splurge and just order some from the company. and i am quite glad i did. this is a really fine drink. i am sure some people will disagree, but it has most of what i look for in a root beer. it is rather sweet, almost too much so. it has a slight kick / spice to it, anise-ish but not quite. creamy and very smooth, almost like a float with no ice cream. a good, solid soda that St Louis should be proud of.
Ingredients:filtered carbonated water, cane sugar, natural flavors, caramel color, vanillin, sodium benzoate (preservative) and citric acid

Aweome rootbeer, in my top 5. Plus I'm in St. Louis so my gas station 3 blocks away has it. So it's my daily rb fix.

BTW, great site!

I can't understand what is wrong with me. I thought this root beer was the pits and I had to through it out before finishing the bottle. Usualy I'm not to far off from Anthony's reviews, but this one, wow am I ever. Could it been the time of night I drank it?????

Tried this root beer once. It was actually very very good. Might be one of my top ten favorites.

is Says:

Yup, this root beer is pretty darn good. It's almost up their with Frostie root beer. My only fault is that they rely too much on vanilla. I like my root beers to be well balanced on not play it easy by adding tons of vanilla. Yet, this is still really good, worthy of an 82 out of 100.

Trying this one again I'd have to give it an 86. The flavor that is there is very good – but it is a tad too weak. If they upped the flavor I think it would be very good.

I have tried more bad to ok root beer than I can count. It's nice to finally get some good bottles among the bad ones. This is one I would buy and drink again. I gave this an 80

Is Says:

This root beer is so good. After trying it again I must say this root beer is a 92. It's as sweet as the dickens, but has a really nice root beer barrel candy flavor (me and my dad thought so). I'd easily buy a case of this and put in my soda machine.
