$1.69 for a 12oz bottle @ BevCo. "Malt beverage with natural and artificial flavors and artificial color and caramel color" 5% ABV per the website.
Pours out to a murky dark brown, actually forming a modest light tan head with OK retention. Carbonation is moderate. Thin layer of dark brown sludge in the bottom of the bottle. The nose is peculiar. There is the obvious rootbeer nose, but a yeast bite that smells like bakers yeast, not brewers yeast. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy, goes down easy. The taste is peculiar. Definitely a bready yeasty note and a little bit of oxidized ruddiness, but it's pretty subtle. Alcohol really isn't very perceptable due to the strong flavors and sweetness, just more of a different tang. The sweetness hits the stomach pretty hard though and I don't think I'd be able to drink more than 2 of these without getting some kinda of terrible GI distress.
Very peculiar. My first hard root beer. Worth a try, but can't see buying it again.
(5 minutes later)-Update. Yeah. This is definitely making me feel really sick. I have to throw this down the drain. There is something wrong in this...something seriously wrong.
