Abita Root Beer
Brewed at the Abita Brewery in Abita Springs, LA.
12oz short brown glass bottle with an interesting paper label. 177 calories and 38 grams of sugar. Sweetened with pure Louisiana cane sugar and brewed with spring water. No specific flavorings listed.
Medium color, small fizzy head that disappears pretty quickly. Aroma is licorice, root spiciness, and a touch of vanilla. Good root bite on the taste with a soft licorice trail on the finish. High carbonation creates a sharp bubbly mouthfeel. The absence of vanilla creaminess keeps this root beer crisp and refreshing.
Well crafted, a pleasing flavor, good root beer overall.
