so they have also changed the recipe of their root beer to not have beet sugar anymore. it also does not specify that it is Colorado water anymore, so who knows where the water is now coming from?! Utah? Iowa? New Jersey?! it is a mystery indeed. and now it is proclaimed ‘small batch’ instead of ‘batch brewed’ which may be more alluring somehow? otherwise they have left things mainly the same, the same ram drawing on the label, the same excellent use of metallic ink for the name and company crest.
but is the taste the same? i have no idea, how could I remember every soda I drank, 5 years ago or whatever?! geez…
this one is not bad. it is high in the licorice/anise taste but it does not control it, it is more the aftertaste you are left with. before that it is subtle. the carbonation is pretty harsh in this brew as well, much like the birch, but here it works better. I think the flavor lends itself more to that mouth feel, it compliments instead of takes away. although I prefer this drink as well after the carbonation has gone down a bunch. it has a nice herbal flavor that sets it apart and a bit higher than your standard root beers. i’d say it is as good or better than the previous incarnation.
