Co-op Gold Root Beer

this is the final soda from my trade with Red, at least right now it is, as i write this. as it is written about a year in advance, i may shuffle reviews around at some point and one of the other ones will appear later although i try to avoid doing that as my comments like this will make no sense. so anyway, this is a store brand from Canada, so i am expecting generic taste here. i do like the image on it of a huge wave seemingly made of root beer as it is brown. i am hoping that is not a post-apocalyptic prediction of our oceans or something.
so the taste here is rather similar to that of the 7-11 root beer i reviewed a few weeks back, also obtained from Red in Canada. it has a more fruity, almost herbal feel to it than what you get from generic root beers from the United States of America. although this one has a sharper feel to it than the 7-11 one did. actually the ingredients are the same too, curious indeed. i doubt they are made by the same people, but it is possible for sure. i think this is different enough though that i don’t suspect that. i do suspect that this is what Canadians think root beer should taste like since this is the second generic root beer with this pretty unusual take on the flavor profile. and i wonder why there is phosphoric acid in there? that sounds horrible. it is definitely not the usual, American, root beer flavor, but it is not awful. it is rather overcarbonated, as are most store brand sodas, which causes the sharp feel and lots of burping. so it could be worse, but it does not amaze.
