Faygo Draft Style Root Beer: Not Bad.

Is Faygo and A&W the same brew???? Almost.

This evaluation was a little skewed for me. You see, I am in the process of moving and I am currently staying in my empty apartment - nothing was in it except this Faygo. So I didn't get the opportunity to make the traditional pour into a frosty mug; so I can't comment on the pour and the head after the pour.

Absolutely no head formed when I opened the bottle, which can form on some brews that are over carbonated (A&W does this often). I must agree with Adam, the color through the bottle did remind me of the standard as did the distinct root beer aroma. I do believe Faygo has a little "harder" flavor than the crisp airiness of A&W. My wife says Faygo lacks the creamy taste of other brews. That may be, but I am not 100% sure. Something about the flavor didn't play my taste buds like an A&W.

Overall, Faygo is a good brew, but I would still pick up an A&W if I had the choice. Faygo's label already displays 2 Frosty Mugs, so I will bump them up a half. 2.5 Frosty Mugs
