this is one i have always been meaning to order. i put it off since i always thought it was just Cool Mountain Root Beer in a new bottle. i am still not sure it is not that but i will go on the thought that they are different. Cool Mountain does own this brand and they don’t make their own root beer anymore though so take that as you will. i should probably put them both under the Evolution Brands flag to tie them together somehow but i am lazy right now i suppose. mostly though that is confusing to users.
i have not had Cool Mountain root beer in many years but tasting this and reading my review of that, i would say they are indeed different formulations. ok, good. this is not so watery. it is more heavy, almost thick and syrupy. i am not saying it is too sweet because it is not, the sweetness is just fine. it just feels heavy in my mouth, not light and refreshing so much as solid. not overpowering either. it is ok, pretty much the expected taste with that heavy mouth feel. the label design is pretty solid, different at least, i will give them that. the metallic brown ink is a nice touch. among the chicago area root beers, this falls short, Sprecher, Goose Island and Berghoff are all better. this just does not set itself apart in any way. it just is. which is ok but i hoped for better.
