Root Beer Review #22 – The Pop Shoppe Root Beer


My Analysis:  “Canada is Weird.”

Logan’s: “It tastes like there’s alcohol in it.”

After a few sips, I also tasted the alcoholy-ness.  It was almost like a rum & coke, which I never liked. There’s a little bite to it that’s off-putting. I’m really hoping that we received a bad bottle, because Canada is known for great things: Canadian bacon, Whippits, poutine, maple leafs, Tim Horton’s, North American Swedish Fish Factory, eh? This is certainly a different tasting root beer. It’s almost medicinal, like Moxie. This is the root beer version of Moxie & Dr. Pepper styling of soda.

We both loved the bottle, with its little smiling root beer, but the flavor was not for either of us. I would, however, buy another bottle since I feel like there must have been something wrong with this batch.
