for some reason I had an influx of Alaskan brewed root beers for a little while a bit ago. which is very awesome. really, an influx of root beers of any sort, from any place in the world is awesome but it is a little nutty that several came from the furthermost US state from in a small time frame. so far I have had decent luck with them. nothing that was truly exceptional but nothing truly awful either. perhaps this one will change that, one way or the other.
the biggest presence in this drink is the carbonation. it is plentiful, sharp and takes over the whole shebang. I am getting more and more frustrated with sodas that do this. perhaps it is just this batch that came out that way but I would hope it would not get passed quality assurance if this is not the intention. plus this is the only can I will most likely ever have so I just have to go on its merits. the flavor beyond that, the little I can make out at least, it just okay. there seems to be a pretty average root beer down there. again, it is hard to tell though. i suspect if it was amazing I would be able to tell but often the amazing ones come from being subtle, having intricate flavors and tastes going on. I wouldn’t know that was happening here. I have tried to let it sit a while so the carbonation would dissipate to no real improved results. oh well.
