Red Arrow The ingredients include “Essences of wintergreen and licorice.” That sums it up in the best way possible. Would buy again.

Rootbeer – Sprecher
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.
Rootbeer – Sioux City Sarsaparilla
Sioux City Sarsaparilla Mild sarsaparilla, and well balanced. Probably great as a first time sarsaparilla.
Rootbeer – Snake River
Snake River Sarsaparilla Sharp and licoricey, punchy and ends softly. A very well balanced beverage. Definitely will buy again.
Rootbeer – Death Valley
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.
Rootbeer – Brownie
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.
Rootbeer – XXX
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.
Rootbeer – Boylan’s
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.
Rootbeer – Bulldog
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.
Rootbeer – Dad’s
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.
