This is a classic Root Beer, sorry, Birch Beer from the Mod-Atlantic region. Growing up this one was ubiquitous, on the shelf at every store but now you have to search for it a little bit. It is not as common as it once was and is not affiliated with the big soda distributors like Pepsi, Coke or Canada Dry. It is relegated to the independent racks down at the bottom of the shelves, but it is well worth the search.
I think it more out of nostalgia that I really like this one. Like I said, we always had it as kids, so it is what I remember most, but as far as root beers go, it is not really the best. It has sort of an heavy artificial flavor and the essential oils linger way to long on the palette. It is a passible root beer, but it will not win any Root Beer Party awards for best root beer, but if your like me and you remember this from your childhood, it comes packed with those intangible memories which elevate it to a whole other class.
I can only recommend this for the sake of novelty as a root beer, for those of you who really like trying out different root beers, this one will be a good addition to your collection and for those of you on the Mid-Atlantic, maybe it will bring back the great memories of summer days and ice cold Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer. Until next time True Believers, may r mug always be frosted and your root beer always foamy.
