Doggone Good Butterscotch Root Beer BottleAnother premium gourmet root beer. This one comes from Orange, CA. The company specializes in small batch private labels with their own recipes for several flavors including root beer and butterscotch root beer. They also sell under their own name, but when they do, they don’t label it, ironically, but just wrap a tag around the bottle with twine. It’s a fancy spring top bottle that’s wax sealed. I’ve never had a waxed sealed spring top bottle before. When I learned about this I asked one of my Tesla Motors Club friends, Paul, to get me some when he was down at Disneyland. He tried to get their plain root beer as well, but they were out of stock the two times he went. Oh well. He gave it to me at TMC Connect. But I was planning on flying home so I gave it to another friend, to drive up to Seattle for me, but then I ended up doing a last minute road trip with Paul all the way home. So then I had to wait for my other friends and then, finally, I got to drink this fancy brau.

The Body is heavy on butterscotch, and light on root beer. And when I say light I mean virtually non-existent. There isn’t much Bite and yet it isn’t smooth either. Even the Head is disappointing it’s only a medium height but is gone far too quickly. The Aftertaste is more butterscotch.

So this is a tasty butterscotch soda, but not a strong root beer. It reminds me of butter beer I’ve had that some people made at some Harry Potter party. I’d drink it again because it is yummy. But if I were craving a nice root beer, this wouldn’t be a first choice. See how it rates against other root beers.
