Red Arrow The ingredients include “Essences of wintergreen and licorice.” That sums it up in the best way possible. Would buy again.
Sprecher Fire-Brewed Root Beer Nice tone. It’s got just enough bite, reminds me a bit of XXX Rootbeer. It has a sweetness that doesn’t linger too long, possibly due to the glucose syrup. In any case, I like it quite a bit.
Sioux City Sarsaparilla Mild sarsaparilla, and well balanced. Probably great as a first time sarsaparilla.
Snake River Sarsaparilla Sharp and licoricey, punchy and ends softly. A very well balanced beverage. Definitely will buy again.
Death Valley Root Beer Good, simpler licoricey flavor. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s just missing something for me. Enjoyed, but not on my short list.
Brownie Caramel Cream Root Beer Very caramely, to degree I’d be happy to call it a caramel soda with a little root beer. I’m think I’ll be skipping it in the future, but only because I’m not a huge caramel fan. Definitely give it a shot if you’re a fan of caramel.
Triple XXX Root Beer Good bite, licoricey and caramely but not overpowering. There’s a Triple XXX diner in Issaquah that will serve it to you in an ice cold mug which makes it absolutely amazing, especially as a float. Would definitely buy again.
Boylan’s Creamy Red Birch Beer Split personality; creamy like a root beer float, but just a hint of dry birch flavor. The aftertaste is complex and enjoyable. I’m on the fence – definitely a pleasure to drink, but may only buy rarely.
The Original Bulldog Root Beer Great bite, notable wintergreen without overpowering, but finishing smooth with vanilla. Will buy again, and it might be a good regular to keep stocked.
Dad’s old fashioned root beer Good bite, not too strong, carmel-sweet afterwards. Simple, definitely a crowd pleaser. I’ve always liked Dad’s, since I was just a kid. Will buy again.
