Another root beer from the pizza place that I walked by for several months without noticing (see first review here).  I always like it when I find a new root beer and there is also a diet root beer or a sarsaparilla. The label here is basically the same as their regular root beer. The taste is alright. It starts out like a good diet root beer but somehow the taste disappears. It has absolutely no lasting root beer flavor. It’s not bad, but overall it is pretty weak.

I’m nearing the end of my haul from the Big Yellow Barn, but I’m not at the end yet. This one is completely new to me, which is always a plus. I like the label. It has a fireman’s logo and has funny sayings such as “Extinguish Your Thirst” and “Ignite The Party.” The taste is good. Nothing out of the ordinary, but still really good.
