The Root Beer Ratings

The Rootbeer Ratings will list each root beer that we evaluate (or plan to evaluate in the near future) and through our posts we will discuss our impressions, which could include taste, head (foam), carbonation, after-taste, smell, packaging...etc. From our impression we will each provide a rating which will be established based on a direct comparison between the evaluated root beer and A&W Root Beer. The ratings can range between one half of a frosty mug of root beer to 5 frosty mugs of root beer, in half increments. With this in mind A&W, being the standard, is ranked with 3 frosty mugs of root beer which will allow room for much better root beer and much worse root beer on the rating scale.
