Bundaberg Root Beer Review

Here is a root beer that intrigued me from start to finish.  The bottle is cool, the “pop top” is cool and the flavor is unique.  This brew comes all the way from Australia.  I did some research at before this review.  This is a family owned business.  They are famous for their Ginger Beer.  They use a five step process for their success.  After tasting their brew they are doing something right.

They tout premium natural ingredients and an old school approach to making root beer.  They tag their brew as distinctive bold taste of yesteryear.  When I pulled the top there was a familiar aroma of my favorite brew.  I took my first swig and right away I could taste the distinctive uniqueness.  There was a citrus like sour bite that boasted me to drink more.  It was a good “chuggable” brew with a good but light carbonation.  The bite grew more distinctive.  I believe this would be a game changer for people that demand a domestic flavor.  Me personally, I really enjoyed it.  I bet many of you may not prefer it.

On to the scoring.  The bottle was really neat, the color was typical and no artificial colors, all natural ingredients, good and very unique flavor, chuggable and Australian.  Overall just fun to drink.  I give this brew a good 4 frosty mugs.  Points reduced for the citric bite which I enjoyed but since I review for all walks of life, I’m sure not all would like the flavor.   If you happen to run upon this brew, try it.  I bet you won’t find this very easily.

The product tastes good, but the new "pop top" sucks. The old style bottle cap was much better. I've just tried opening a new style "pop top" and followed exact instructions ("pull out then up") on the tab, only to find the tab popping off but the cap still stuck firmly onto the bottle. Bottom line is if Bundaberg don't go back to the old style bottle cap (and I prefer the old style bottle too, btw), then I'll stop buying their products...and that goes for ginger beer, lemon/lime/bitters, etc, etc. There is lots of competion and the products are just as good...but at least you can open the damn bottles!

I’ve never had a problem
I kind of like the pop when you pull up
I find no issues
Pull it out and up or in then up
