i saw this at the grocery store even though they have not carried other Briars’ stuff in a while. i thought it was just a new packaging but then i checked out and found it is an entirely new line. i think this is the heaviest bottle of root beer i have ever expirienced. this root beer is much better than their regular version. although it does not have the usual cane sugar taste that i expected. it is more of a corn sweetener sweetness. although if i pay a lot of attention (which i should do anyhow to review, right?), i can taste is slightly. it is pretty creamy and not really too stand-out-ish (i just made that up, like it?). but it is good. deceptive though since it looks like it has little carbonation but when you drink it, it tastes very carbonated. not bad, probably the best thing in this size bottle. i just wish they came up with a different name for it. throw in “old fashioned” or “draught” or “microbrewed” or something.

I just found this at an online store.
When It came in and I looked at the bottle, I thought it looked light in color and was thinking, this might not be any good.

Boy was I surprised, It was really good. If I did a top ten list, this would make the number 5-10 half. I liked how creamy this was and I really could tell it had vanilla in it. I gave this an 85.
