From Oklahoma City in the OK state of Oklahoma (I will not apologize) comes this brew. It’s made by BTB Brewing Company, which stands for Bricktown Brewing Company… so where’s the other B mean? BrickTown Brewing Brewing Company? That’s what the bottle makes it out to be. The only reason I could find out it was Bricktown was some very small print on the side. I’m just … no. I’m done. I’m not even going to do this anymore. So Bricktown Brewing Company is a sorta Midwest Chain, with all locations in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, R-Kansas I mean Arkansas, and Missouri. Their website says nothing about this root beer at all, why it’s called Atta Boy, why it’s a dog, or anything. But peeps like their dogs and like to name root beers after them and I like to complain about it so there we are. Anyways, the most fine and accommodating Rick sent me this for which he has my eternal thanks. Atta Boy Rick (still not sorry).
The Body is nice and sweet with a classic creamy root beer stand flavor. There’s a good amount of vanilla mixed into the sassafras core accented by some spice. The Bite is decently sharp with a fairly smooth finish. The Head is disappointing. It’s tiny short, it’s gone quickly. It ruins an otherwise impeccable root beer experience. The Aftertaste is sweet vanilla and sassafras with the tiniest hints of wintergreen which builds as you drink, making it tastier and tastier.
Wow, fine flavors, but a terrible Head. So close. If this had a Henry’s type Head I’d probably rate it 4 1/2, but it doesn’t so I won’t, I can’t, and finally I’m sorry. I really wanted to give it the Seal, but rules are rules and however yummy you may be, a root beer needs to be the whole package and experience. But also it’s still yummy so worth drinking should you be at the BTB Brewery or whatever. See how it rates against other root beers.
