Dad's Old Fashioned Root Beer
A well known and widely available root beer with a great history originating in Chicago, IL.
I decided to review Dad's just because it's available in a nice looking 12oz brown glass bottle with a painted label.
A whopping 230 calories, 44 grams of sugar. Sweetened with invert sugar, no specific flavorings listed.
Darker color, small fizzy head that dissipates quickly into small bubbles around the edge of the glass. Good spicy aroma with a fair amount of vanilla & wintergreen. Taste has familiar root beer flavor with vanilla creaminess and a sugary finish. Medium carbonation and a pretty good mouthfeel. Average, mild, and inoffensive overall.
I would maybe drink Dad's once in a while, but the high calories makes me lose interest.
