Dogs n' Suds

It is true, Dogs n' Suds has been in my life since I was a child. How can you turn down a huge bottle of brew? Especially one sporting such a colorful label. But the truth is I haven't had this root beer in quite a while and when I opened this mammoth bottle I was not as a giddy as I was when I was a child. For some reason, I feel my bottle was defective.

When I made my first pour into the trusty frosty mug, no head appeared. Instead the spirit (bubbles) just lie stagnant along the side of the mug. To say the least, it was very odd. The second pour was a little bit better, a head did form, but it was no wear near the quality of the standard. When I tasted the Dogs n Suds, it was somewhat flat - but not entirely. It still had a crisp root beer flavor and aroma. It was very sweet, but truly was just an ordinary root beer with no flavor frills. It is the kind of root beer that floats were made for.

I am going to give this brew 3 Frosty Mugs mostly based on label and serving size. This rating is skewed by my poor sample quality. In the future, if I do run into another bottle, I will post an update to give a more accurate review.
