Baumeister Old Fashioned Root Beer

it has been 12 years or so since i last had Baumeister Root Beer. my memory is not good to begin with so trying to remember this drink is not happening. they claim on the label that a certain Heine Baumeister tapped into some artesian water in 1907 and ever since Baumeister sodas have been made with the same local tradition. it is possible, sure. i hope that is true. yet most sodas have not been continuously produced for that whole period. any the who… they changed their recipe a bit in the 12 years since i tried it, but of course they adhered in the local tradition and used corn syrup still. =)
when i think of Wisconsin, it definitely does not occur to me that they would have lighthouses there in abundance. yet there is a lighthouse on this label, shining its light on a barrel of what i assume is root beer. i suppose i should go educate myself on Wisconsin some more ASAP. although the one represented here may be the anomalous light house in all of the state. no idea.
this tastes pretty good. it is one of those that seems to taste better as you drink more. it is quite creamy and mellow, not tons of carbonation, just enough to let you know you are having a carbonated drink but not so much that it takes away from the flavor. the flavor is basically standard, which is why it does not rate higher in my book. i like it, yes, but i can get pretty much the same taste from at least 30 other root beers that are easier for me to get. if i was in Wisconsin, this might be more my go-to root beer or my standard to judge against. yet, i do not, so it is not. although i don’t really have a standard to judge against anyway so maybe that was all a big lie.

  1. Wisconsin borders both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, both of which would require lighthouses for safe navigation with all of the commercial shipping there.
