RBR Late Entries

Hubby went to yet another store today and came home with 6 more bottles of root beer, thus we have these late entries:

The only one that had cane sugar was the Boylan, so we tried that first which means that the tasting of the corn syrup varieties has been delayed. As for the Boylan there is something of note. It is made by the Boylan Bottle Co., not bottling company. Apparently they weren't making enough on the empty bottles and so they had to branch out into filling them. This root beer does not make it to the top of the list because of one glaring problem - it didn't taste like root beer. It has the same kind of thin sugar water base, slightly more carbonated than the others, but the flavor was that of cherry cola mixed with cream soda. Tastey, but not root beer. Of course this makes it difficult to rank, I'll have to contemplate that one for a bit.

I gotta say, that does sound yummy!

Is that Henry's I see in the new lineup?

It was ok. And yup, that would be Henry's in the new line up. I'm saving that one for close to the end since it's sort of a known quantity, but with my luck it will end up falling short of the mark once I compare it to all the rest. Time will tell.

I think Boylan has to be DQ'd for masquerading as a root beer. I was going to point out it looked like you had a ringer inthe mix with Henry's

I think I agree with you Shadow. You should see some of the weird stuff they put in root beer. It explains why they are so inconsistent. For instance, Boylan has yucca in it. Yucca!! Who came up with that idea?
