hhhmmm, what to say? i feel i have said many times how it is easy to write a bad review and not so hard to write a good review but the ones that are just pretty good or very similar to others sodas are quite difficult. this is a very good soda, creamy, good foam, nice sweetness, yummy taste. just not the best ever or the most unique. sure i would drink it often given the chance and i like the label pretty good. so get some if you are in the chicago-land area.
Ingredients:carbonated water, sugar and/or corn sweetener, caramel color, natural and artificial flavors, sodium benzoate (as a preservative)

A pretty good root beer, not among the best but worth drinking.

Yeah, this root beer is just alright. It's very mediocreish. It kind of reminds me of Red Ribbon root beer. Not extremely good, but not horrible. Ibc is better than this stuff. I'm just surprised that Filbert's claim that they are best known for their root beer. If anything, their banana soda tops this one. 70 for me.

This was really weak in flavor, did not really come across as tasting like root beer, more like a cross between cream soda and root beer, kind of like I mixed the two. I gave this a 65.

After trying this again, I have to up my score to an 85. It has a really good flavor; plus an additional/extra/interesting flavor that I picked out of it. I couldn't figure it out, but I think it was like cinnamon or something.
