Yet another Rocket Fizz concoction! They seem to make more soda flavors than anyone in the world. Not much to say that was not written earlier in the blog.
So it is time for the review. (Click here for information on the rating criteria and a table of all the root beer tested or to be tested.)
Carbonated Water, Sugar, Citric Acid, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate as a Preservative, Gum Acadia, Natural and Artificial Flavors.

Aroma and Flavor – 1 out of 3 mugs
The aroma was that of a commercial root beer float. Nothing distinctive. At first drink, I thought I was drinking an excessively creamy cream soda, yet there was an odd aftertaste. The sugar level was excessive for me, rather syrupy. I assume sugar lovers would thrive over the sugar content.
Head – 1.25 out of 3 mugs
The head is rather frothy and dissipated to about ¼ inch immediately then slowly dissipated in about a minute.
Zip – 1 out of 3 mugs
This is a very basic beverage and I found nothing unique and memorable. Oddity was the strong creamy flavor but was not a creamy beverage, if that makes sense? It was not smooth at all, in fact a little harsh with an aftertaste that lingers.
Post Consumption Impression – 1.25 out of 3 mugs
While some may love the brew, the beverage is simple and sweet, it is not my preference. I really found little root beer flavor to enjoy.
Would I recommend this at 4.5 out of 12 mugs?
I would hesitate to suggest you buy a 6 pack, but maybe work a try. If you like a heavily sweetened cream soda, this may be to your liking.
