hhhmm, a diet soda, hooray! maybe..? i think i have higher hopes for micro-breweries getting diet sodas right than i do for the bigger brewers or soda companies. so this might be yummy!
they went with only a slightly lighter brown for the color scheme on this one versus that of their full sugar variety. and the hat on the anthropomorphized barrel/keg is holding playing cards instead of pistols and sporting a hat emblazoned with ‘2.2’ on it, since that is how many calories are in here. see, they add agave syrup as well as splenda so that give it a bit of carbs and calories. i can’t say i have liked many drinks with agave as the main sweetener so my hopes are still in check here.
ok, it is ok. i think the agave does control the diet awfulness somewhat. but it is not good or even close to it. my stomach is still mad at me for drinking it. there is still somewhat of a metal taste that is not covered by anything. the root beer flavor is there in the background but mostly it is pretty bland. i have had much worse, that is for sure.
Ingredients:filtered carbonated water, Splenda, natural flavors, pure vanilla, blue agave nectar, potassium sorbate (a preservative)
