i am very much in debt to a few people for all of the lopsided root beers trades they have done with me. foremost by a large margin (no, not a Large Marge, that is something else entirely), is the man who sent me this brew, the mighty Sagi. so thank you again my brother from completely different parents and heritage.
the fine folks behind this soda actually make four flavors of soda along with a whole mess of alcoholic beers. their style is interesting and unique. sure, it has brown, the traditional root beer color going on, but it has a lot of yellow and some green too. it is a nice change of pace. as is having a micro brew soda in a can. it is rather impressive that they only used 15 grams of sugar in here, i hope it is ok. that actually makes me a bit leery as often when that is done the soda does not taste sweet enough at all, or else the company throws in nutrisweet or some other lo cal sweetener and ruins the taste. that combined with the fact that they use an extract in here definitely dampens my hopes for this drink.
huh. this is actually quite yummy. i kind of didn't expect that. it is sort of light and refreshing yet flavorful. it isn't very sweet, true, but it is just right really for the rest of the profile here. i taste some definite sassafras as well a bit of licorice, a hint of ginger and other spices, perhaps star anise. i quite enjoy this. it is for sure be one of the best canned root beers i have had. the carbonation feels a little rough but it doesn't detract from the taste to me. very good work Caldera people.
