Sprecher Root Beer BottleSeal of ApprovalAnother brew that I found in Sacramento on the trip there after my mission. My grandmother mentioned that there was a really nice root beer at a cafe down a few blocks away from her house which prompted me to drop everything and take off to see if there was any truth to the rumor. I found that the stories were true and I bought three bottles. Since it was already cold, I was able to start reviewing it as soon as I got back to the house. I for many years mispronounced the name of this. I always though it was a ‘ch’ sound and not a ‘k’ sound so it’s like the German word to talk. Also, I’m not sure what the crow daemon thing is supposed to be but at least it’s not a dog…

The Body is sweet and smooth with a nice honey flavor to it. One of the best root beer bodies that I have ever tasted. The Bite is there, but not too much, more on the smooth side, like I like it. The Head is good and frothy, but, unfortunately was a little too short to rank higher. The Aftertaste is also very nice with the honey.

Wow! This stuff is great. The only thing that could be improved would to have more vanilla flavor to it and a taller Head. All in all, this is a top notch brew. The fact that they sell this in pints means you always get an extra four ounces of goodness and trust me, you’ll always be wanting it. Since I originally reviewed it the label has changed to add that it was voted #1 by the New York Times. Well, I’m awarding my Seal of Approval, which is far more prestigious than anything in the Times. See how it rates against other root beers.
