Hill Country Fare Root Beer Soda - ehhhhhhh. Well, at least it's cheap.

Well, I actually recieved this root beer quite a while ago, but due to one thing or another it has sat chilling in the refrigerator ever since. I apologize to anyone who has been desperately waiting my review. :0)

Let me first start off, that it was definatly not worth the wait.

As you can see from the picture the marketing department did not splurge on can design, but as Adam mentioned this is expected from generic sodas and helps root beer lovers like us to be able to buy more of it at a cheaper price.

This was really a tricky mug for me to judge because when you open up this can of root beer and pour it into a frosty mug it really looks appealing. It has a strong root beer aroma and a really exceptional dark root beer color. The head after the pour is rather large, but very short lived.

Then the first taste.....

Although it was "aged" in the chill box for a good 2-3 weeks, it did not improve the flavor. I felt it to be a rather "watered-down" root beer taste. In fact, because of the original presentation of the root beer following the pour into my mug, I had to take another judging swill to ensure that it was a true watered-down flavor that I was experiencing. I am still not 100% sure if that is what I was tasting, but regardless, it did not register as a quality root beer. 1 Frosty Mug
