holy crap, 240 calories?! 50 grams of carbs?! 135mg of sodium? that is all insane. well, the carbs/sugar is not too terrible, a lot pf root beers are in that range, but that’s a lot of calories and sodium. i do like salty caramel though so hopefully they pull it off.
it seems to be the trend these days to do a butterscotch root beer, ever since Dang! first did it six or seven years ago. it is a fine flavor combo and i am all for flavor variations so keep doing it soda companies! I did not expect AJ Stephens to be the next to branch out in such a fashion as they seem to be a pretty traditional, established brand, but kudos to them for doing new things.
so this is a very sweet soda! all of the butterscotch root beers are really, so that is not shocking in itself. it is not sickeningly sweet though unlike a couple of those. the root beer flavor is also more present, it does not come off as just a butterscotch soda, there is more there. it is not a drink i would reach for too often, i don’t want something THIS sweet very much, but as an occasional thing, i am all for it. it is rich and smooth and creamy, the carbonation doesn’t impinge on the flavor profile. well done AJ!
