Another one from the Beverages Direct order. Though, this one isn’t even listed on their site, they had to tell me about it. They keep it hidden away, for reasons unknown, and drop it in the occasional mystery soda sampler box. It’s like they’re enticing you to buy random stuff in the hopes of uncovering a hidden gem of obscure root beers or something. Maybe they only reveal it to those who they find truly worthy, and at last I have so merited in their eyes. Whatever the reason, I was able to acquire it. It seems to be the root beer for a restaurant right across the street from Wrigley Field, where people go to party after Cubs games. I wonder if there’s something like that for the Mariners that I’ve been missing out on, but I digress. It’s brewed by Minhas Craft Brewery, which sounds like a Portuguese name to me, even though the website indicates that the immigrants who started the place seemed to be from everywhere but Portugal. Oh well.

This has a medium Body that is rather sweet. It’s moderately creamy with a vanilla flavor but on the whole it’s a little weak. There’s a very light Bite with few spices. The Head is short but rather frothy. The Aftertaste is a light vanilla flavor with the slightest hint of some fruity sour thing that is almost like bubble gum.

Overall this is a decent root beer but really nothing special about it. Maybe at the end of the day, that is why it’s tucked away. I’d still get it with some food after a Cubs game though. See how it rates against other root beers.
