wow, this looks suspiciously like Olde Brooklyn soda. even the naming scheme. oh well, whatever, that soda disappeared from my store’s shelves so perhaps they folded. not too discript a soda here. seems a bit watery really. a little sweet, rather creamy. maybe more than just a bit watery actually. the taste just does not really stand out at all. not offensive or anything of course, it just is there, making me shrug when i think about it.
Ingredients:filtered carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, caramel color, natural and artificial flavor, citric acid, acacia, quillaia and yucca extracts

I finally got a bottle of this. I gave it a 50 out of 100. It was ok.
