i suspect that this is the same thing as the other “Select” root beers i have reviewed (safeway, stop n shop)but i could be wrong. that top logo thing seems the same, just with the particular store chain in its place. indeed. i quite like their packaging, the light and dark brown stripes and the always classic barrel motiff, very nice! the taste is alright, about the same as most store brands, sweet at first and then you get that sort of burnt/slightly bitter taste at the end as it goes down. could be the aluminum can breaking down or something i suppose. nothing special at all but for 6/$1 or whatever, you can’t expect a lot i don’t think. i just wish they knew if it had corn syrup or sugar or both. i would guess mostly high fructose corn syrup in here though, it has that taste.
