i got this confused with College Club, which is another small bottler up by the great lakes area, near Syracuse i believe, whereas this one is out of Detroit. but they are not the same at all, no sir. both are clubs of course, with a “e” at the end of the word before. in college club’s case it is needed, in towne club’s it is not at all. so why is there one? is a ‘towne’ different from a ‘town?’ or is it like ‘olde’ and ‘old’ or ‘time’ and ‘tim?’ the world may never know. or it might if it bothered to google the derivation of the words, which i am apparently too lazy to do right now. i feel it should be ‘towne clubbe’ or something though. maybe it is just me.
in any case, i like the cut of this company’s jib, not capitalizing things, buying into the grammar police’s ‘rules’ and ‘standards’ and on on. you go towne club!
they retain the feel of their olde tyme bottles well i think, keeping it simple, just 2 colors with simple drawings of a frosty mug and a barrel.
the soda itself is pretty good. a lot of caramel taste, smooth and creamy with a good level of cane sugar taste. it goes does well, no harshness at all. i like that in a drink on the whole. it makes it more refreshing and clean in my mind. it is more likely to be able to be drank quickly. which is good and bad. on a hot summer day it is good. for soda company business it is good, i can consume more in a quicker time. for my health it is bad. for taking note of it and grabbing my attention it is bad. on the whole though i enjoy it. it is not remarkable, but for a small time bottler making lots of flavors and trying to appeal to the masses with something yummy, it is solid.
Ingredients:carbonated water, pure cane sugar, caramel color, natural and artificial flavors, sodium benzoate (preservative), citric acid, and phosphoric acid

An 83 rating means I'll have to keep my eye out for this when I visit my parents in Detroit.

I actually really like this soda. It has somewhat of a nice licorice flavor that goes down smooth. The carbonation is perfect, and the sweetness is also nice and cane-sugary. I might eventually buy a case of this stuff, because it's that good. It's weird, but I have seen Towne Club sodas mostly made with HFCS; however their root beer always seems to be made with cane sugar. I give this an 87.

I was lucky enough to pick up a bottle of this while out on my 21 year wedding anniversary road trip. This was really good, a mild smooth flavor and I wish they sold this in my state, I would happily buy more, I give this an 85
