Root 66 Root Beer
- Roadside Beverage Co. Charlottesville, VA 22902
- The Pitch:
- The Ingredients:
- Pure sparkling water, pure cane sugar, natural & artificial ingredients,
sarsaparilla root, sweet birch, chicory, anise, caramel color, sodium
benzoate, citric acid and yucca.
- The color is a little on the light side with a decent head. The first
thing you'll notice is the distinctive cane sugar taste. Some people
don't like that, I do. Moderately carbonated, fairly smooth. Tasty.
It's hard to put my finger on what I don't like about this. I like the
flavors, but perhaps they don't quite mesh. Maybe it's a little too
sweet. These are not complaints...this root beer is quite good. I'm
just listing reasons it is not a solid "A". From the ingredient
list it looks like they put some effort into this and it shows. Sometimes
I have one and think, "this is great", but mostly I think,
"this is really good". I really agonized over the score, but
in the end I decided it's not quite an A-. It is a very high B+.
