One from my BYU days, I ordered it in a variety pack online and when I got it one of my friends at the time told me how much she loved Dog n Suds. I didn’t actually ask for more info so I was completely lost as to what they were going for in their name. There’s a dog holding a hotdog and a mug of root beer so I assumed that the name came from a dog with a sudsy root beer, or maybe one is supposed to order a hotdog and the root beer supplies the suds. At the time it was an enigma but one I didn’t care to expend too much effort to solve (this was back before Percival C. McGillicuddy was on the scene). Finally someone emailed me at explained that it was a hotdog/root beer stand chain, hence ‘dog’ n ‘suds’. That would explain the whole “Drive In Style” on their bottle. I’ll just leave the original ratings table review the same so you can see the whole process of it back then.
The Body is creamy and good. The right type of flavor with nothing overly special but nothing wrong at all. It is all there. The Bite is a little on the weak side but I have said it before and I will iterate it, I like it SMOOTH! The Head is also nice and “sudsy?” though not as frothy as some of the others but definitely adequate. The Aftertaste also has got the right stuff.
I say that this root beer is just plain good. I understand the whole suds part of the name, it really is actually sudsy but in a good way. Though, unfortunately, it’s another brew to be tagged with ‘dog’ too much of that. Also, it’s a shame none of those drive-ins are remotely near me over here. Oh well. See how it rates against other root beers.
