I really wanted to like this beer, since I like a good root beer with a kick. Perhaps I just favor root beers with more of a licorice or wintergreen flavor, but this Hard Root Beer did nothing for me. When I tried it, all I got was a malt and cream flavor, which unfortunately isn't quite my thing.

Bottle

Dark brown, thin layer

Smells like a sweet root beer

Good tasting root beer with a kick. The bourbon barrel aging imparts a different, distinctive but delicious taste to the sweet root beer taste. Medium mouthfeel.

Sweet and good. Worth repeating for a different change of taste. root beer with a kick, I like it!
