Review: Root Beer

Posted: Mar 29, 2005 at 4:31 PM (Last Updated: Apr 08, 2005 at 9:41 AM)
As befits the name, there’s nothing artificial-tasting at all about this Root Beer, which carries with it plenty of birch and sassafras flavor. It’s got terrific mouth-feel, isn’t syrupy at all due to the cane sugar used to sweeten it, has a creamy finish, but doesn’t pour with a head at all and could probably use a bit more carbonation. Nevertheless, as a mild, non-spicy root beer, it stands with the best of them and is served well by the retro-style Boylan’s Natural bottle. The question is whether it will be able to distinguish itself in what is an already-crowded craft root beer field.
