    Default Root Beer

    I like root beer. I bought these at Galco's:


    I included the birch beer and the sasparilla because I thought they might be related to root beer. For this round, I went the pure cane sugar route. I will start drinking and reviewing them next.

    First up:

    Boylan's Birch Beer $1.49
    We didn't start on an auspicious note. Dark in color; not much head; both the Mrs. and I thought it tasted kind of like cough medicine. I also suggested a hint of licorice, while Mrs. said maybe it was anise. Anyway, not a favourite.

    Dark in color, when poured from the bottle, the head lasted over a minute and a half. If you like your root beer sweet (almost vanilla-creme like), this one is a good start, but it didn't have enough "snap" for our taste. Still, not a bad drink--5/10 rating. On to the next one.

    Slightly lighter in colour; head gone in about a minute. Though it specifically listed "vanillin"(?) amongst the ingredients, it was not overly sweet. In fact, it had a really good snappy flavour with little or no aftertaste. A 7/10 rating.

    Real sudsy head disappears quickly. Good flavour, not too sweet, compares favourably to Fitz's so far. 7/10 rating.

    The rootbeer at BJ's is pretty damn good. I believe they make it on the premisis.
