A Connecticut-made root beer I bought while on vacation in Minnesota. The label is truly unique. I don’t think I have seen another soda label like this one, which is saying a lot. After looking at the label, I noticed that this one has a lot more ingredients than the usual root beer. Also, it’s a diet root beer but has 5 grams of sugar and “less than 2” calories. I have had Hosmer Mountain root beer and sarsaparilla several times before and always enjoyed it, so I’m hoping I will like this one too. The taste is decent as far as diet root beer goes. It’s drinkable and everything you can really hope for in a diet root beer. But it’s not the best diet root beer I’ve ever had.
