the root beer! i don’t know why i didn’t review this sooner, seems silly. oh well. so yeh, let me taste it and see what is what here. have i mentioned that i love this heavy glass bottles? very great stuff. the soda itself is quite good also. sweet and roobeer-ish. does not really stand out taste-wise yet it is good enough. a solid foamy head is a testament to it’s creaminess. well, not really, it is more a testament to the yucca extract in it, but it sounds better that way. the acacia in it is a testament to the creaminess. right-o. i like it but i would not go out of my way again just to get it, yet i would buy it were it more local.

Why are they using an A-Treat bottle? So, A-Treat uses cans now instead of nice, heavy duty glass bottles? What they heck.

I gave it an 80, I love how creamy it is, but agree it lacks in root beer flavor. I also would not buy it again, even if the sold it local here.

This root beer was surprisingly really really tasty. I thought it was going to be alright, but it was great. Catawissa bottling actually bottles some pretty good sodas such as their Moxie and their ginger ale. This was very good, and had a flavor that was not overly complex or too creamy. It had a very basic flavor that was very good. I gave it an 89.
