Mother Road Route 66 Root Beer

whoa, yet another Route 66 theme root beer! this time it is Mother Road Route 66 Root Beer from Mother Road sodas who seem to be a new company although they are bottled by Filberts and the ingredients are almost identical so it may really just be a vanity label or a re-branding or something. whatever, this has cane sugar, when I reviewed Filberts it did not, so it is different enough for me. but they are a Chicago company, which seems a little unusual, but whatever, it is all America, right? and I suppose the obsession with Route 66 and root beer is that they both sort of harken back to an earlier time and seem quite 50s-ish in ways. at least from what my impression of Route 66 is, maybe that is all wrong, I was not close to alive in the 50s after all.
so this root beer just kind of is a root beer. that seems to be happening often lately. nothing much ventured here, but just a decent root beer anyway. it has a nice head so looks pretty in that regard but it does not matter much in the end. it has a fine taste, sweet yet creamy and quite smooth. the carbonation is good, it doesn’t hurt my face area in any way, also a plus. so ok maybe it is more than just kind of a root beer, it is fine and tasty but nothing unusual. you go into this expecting a root beer and you get one, seems like a pretty good deal I suppose, right? right.

  1. I actually liked this one quite a bit. Believe in the high 80s. Better than the usual Filberts.
