Milwaukee Brewing Old No. 3 Root Beer

I must admit, there are a few people out there who are super root beer hunters. somehow they find these sodas that i had no idea existed. now, i think i am pretty good at finding stuff, at least stuff online, not like lost children or my keys or anything in real life of course. luckily for me, a couple of these super hunters have contacted me and wanted to trade for stuff i have. one such contact is Jon. we did a couple trades over the years, both had kids named Maddie and recently touched base again for a new trade. this brew was among the ones i did not know existed.
i am a fan of the label, it is unusual and fun, with paper cut out style images and a photo face on the firefighter putting out a raging inferno. this soda is in face “a salute to firefighters for their bravery and courage.” so that is nice too.
i am not a fan that they put the nutritional info as a serving being 8oz. that is just dumb, it is a 12oz bottle, don’t make me do the math or pretend that this is lower calorie than it is when i do a quick glance.
the drink itself is decent. it is smooth and semi creamy. the vanilla makes itself known for sure. yet it is a bit watery and weak, especially when i get lower down into this bottle. it has a normal flavor profile, or at least within the norm. it leans towards the creamier, smooth side of he fence and away from the spicy, sharp side. no risks were taken here and that is just fine really. i wish they would up the flavor a bit but it is a fine soda anyway.
