Root Beer Review #36 – Mason’s Root Beer

We’ve finally made it through three dozen root beers! Honestly, they’re all starting to run together in my brain. I’m sure I’m being influenced by the labels. This label has a good old style comic strip graphic design. This could be a root beer that was consumed on Scooby Doo.

This is a Real Soda brew, but produced under the Monarch Company, Inc. which produces New Age sodas. I’m confused, by the production and distribution scheme, but I wouldn’t go out of your way for this flavor. It’s not bad, but certainly not so unique that you need to find a bottle. The keg brewed flavor is interesting and unique. It’s got a little bite to it on the first few sips but doesn’t last. I’m not a fan of overtly herbal brews without the licorice undertones.

I cheated and looked on some other review sites to get the word herbal. And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!
