I have had Johnnie Ryan’s non-diet root beer before, but I cannot remember how it tasted at all. I plan on having that one again to review it here. The bottle for the diet one is really cool. First off, it’s only 11.5 ounces, which makes it slightly irregular—always a plus for my collection. Second, there isn’t the usual label, rather, it is embossed onto the bottle, which I like a lot. It has dual languages, another quality I don’t usually find. Upon opening the bottle, there is no head at all. The taste is pretty good for a diet root beer. I actually like it quite a lot. If I had to go with diet root beer again, this one would be near the top of the list.
