Type: Sarsaparilla Comes In: 12oz glass bottle
Available: ME, MA, NH, NY

Obtained in: mail from company
Head: Huge Sweetener: cane sugar
Caffeine: No
Website: http://maineroot.com/

this soda also has only the three ingredients that are listed on the root beer label. their website claims that they tone down the clove so that the wintergreen taste can come through more. i can see that somewhat but it is not a strong wintergreen at all. plus i would think if you are going for having a wintergreen tasting beverage you would call it a birch beer. oh well, to each their own. I would say i may even enjoy this more that the root beer although it does have a similar taste, rather simple and not too strong at all. the cane sugar definitely comes through again too. i hope they get some distribution in NJ because this is a very good soda!

This was nice! It has a creamy quality, the flavor is vivid but not overpowering, and it has a nice, clean mouthfeel. I don't know if it actually tastes like sarsaparilla but it's very enjoyable regardless.

Ok, this has a very very nice sarsaparilla taste. The problem is that it also has a heavy mint/Literine/toothpaste flavor that really makes it gross. Because of this, I could only tolerate about 10 ounces before throwing it out. I even gave some to a fellow co-worker and he said it tasted like Listerine. This would be an excellent sarsaparilla; Maine Root just needs to tone down the toothpaste flavor. All in all, I must give this a 58. Baron's is still the best I've tasted out of the Sarsaparillas thus far.

I am thinking from the reviews given I must have had a bum bottle, this was almost clear like 7up, it tasted like apples, this stuff was so nasty I gave it a 10. This simply was one of the worst I have ever had.
