a few years ago i reviewed the old style Chicago Rootbeer which was “Fountain Classic” where this one is “Draft Style.” as the ingredients and nutritional info has changed, i gather the difference between Draft and Fountain is twenty more calories and some potassium. i never knew that, so it is a good thing to learn after all these years. i have wondered what makes something “draft style” numerous times. i always figured it had to do with the amount of foam somehow. perhaps it still does.
anyway, i imagine this is better than the old one as it’s tasty and i recall the other just being mediocre. i should read the review. yeah, this is better than the old one, perhaps they took my advice. i am actually reminded a good deal of Berghoff’s which is also a solid yet not terribly distinct root beer from Chicago. this one is very smooth, not as much creamy as smooth, more of a caramel feel than a dairy product feel i suppose i’d say. the head is large to start but quickly dissipates. i don’t really care about that. the sweetness is solid, pretty high but not over the line. again, it does not do anything special but what it does it does just fine.

This one is the same recipe as Cool Mountain root beer; except this one’s bottled in Chicago. Maybe you should also try Cool Mountain root beer to verify that they too have updated their recipe to this current formula. I’m one of the few that gave Cool Mountain a pretty good score….like an 88 or something like that.
