Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer
Small Town Brewery Not Your Father’s Root Beer is a Herbed/Spiced Beer, 5.9% ABV. Or is this a soda?
Looks just like a Root Beer soda, dark cola color and a head that fades to nothing almost immediately. The carbonation is way too low for a soda… so this is a beer then, right? The aroma is odd, lots of clove (too much really), vanilla and a good bit of that 5.9% ABV is coming out as well. I like the taste though, it does taste a lot like a root beer. Sweet caramel and vanilla, sassafras flavoring, the clove is there but more mild.
Dangerous, I found myself chugging this nearly 6% beer down like a soda. Wait… this is a beer, right? On the fence a bit with this one. I’m not sure if I’m good with a single bottle or if I should pick up some more to bring home with me!
