ok, so i am back from a brief pause in the root beer action. i went and got married which took a good amount of time away from other endeavors. i am sure you can imagine. and then we honeymooned and i did my best to find new brews to review but came up empty in the caribbean. there was a lot of ginger beer, which i also love, but no root or birch. alas.
this is all irrelevant to the soda in my hand of course but i suppose i am delaying writing about it as it is diet and i am not a big fan of diet drinks in general. this one being no exception either.
both of my issues with diet sodas come into play with this beverage, one more than the other in this case. first i always feel like diet drinks have much less taste than their full-on sugared brethren. that is very much the case here, it barely tastes like anything. the second issue is the awful aftertaste. and actually this drink does not have that nearly as much as other diet sodas. not that having less of a bad thing equals a good thing of course, it is just a smaller bad thing, but that is something i suppose.
it is hardly recognizable as root beer but perhaps i like the sensitivity to pick it up in diet sodas for some reason…
if you must drink diet, you could do worse than this is the bottom line.
