the second offering from this company is very similar in style to the first. which is a fine and expected thing, company continuity in look and feel is good. just the color scheme of the flavor name changes slightly. here we have a maroon background and text and junk instead of the green stuff on the sarsaparilla bottle. good good.
you know what, this soda is actually very good. a touch watery and that keeps it from being in the upper echelon, but it is yummy in any case. it is sweet and slightly tart at once, hitting you with the herbal side of things. but not a hard hit with a big mallet used in circus strength testing, bell ringing con schemes, but instead a nerf hammer that my toddler daughter would wield against the forces of evil headed by the evil purple plastic star she seems to have decided was her enemy and cannot be in her bathtub with her. i want that side to come out a little bit more, which is why i said that ‘watery’ comment above. i feel i may be nitpicking, it is tasty and you should try it. i merely want it to be a touch more intense in the flavor department. the sweetness is quite high so if you don’t like a sweet drink, this is not for you. but me, i do like a sweet drink so it is A-OK in my book. and on my website. as you can see since you are on it right now. my website, not my book. the book is proverbial, theoretical if you will. there is no actual book.
as the company seems to be based very close to me, i will have to see if i can go there and get another case. especially since i told my wife it was ok to drink the last of the birch beer, thinking i had more of it when i in fact did not. no worries, i will get more.
