Dog n Suds Root Beer
"Drive-in style" root beer as stated on the bottle. Same root beer that's available at their restaurants across the midwest. Dog n Suds is headquartered in Champaign, IL.
Cute (but poorly attached) paper label on a 12oz brown glass bottle. Only 110 calories and 30 grams of sugar. Sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, no specific flavorings listed.
Light in color, almost bordering dark amber. Small fizzy head that disappeared quickly. Aroma was vanilla and a touch of licorice. Taste had alot of vanilla creaminess, getting close to a cream soda style. Medium carbonation, lighter mouthfeel, very smooth finish with a mild and pleasant aftertaste.
I can only assume this root beer was designed to go well with their menu items. (e.g. dogs, burgers & fries) I bet it does a great job at that. Not an exciting root beer, but it's light, creamy, and refreshing.
