Fire Brewed Hard Root Beer
On a semi-dare by Ed Roberts, I picked up Sprecher's Fire Brewed Hard Root Beer earlier this week. I love root beer. My wife says it smells and tastes like toothpaste or Pepto-Bismol but she is of course wrong. This hard root beer has a great aroma of brown sugar and honey with touches of anise, maple and vanilla. YUM!
Flavors very much imitate that of the aroma, but the 5% alcohol provides a noticeable kick and even light burn. The alcohol worked well with the sweetness of the soda base, highlighting the anise and vanilla while giving a bite at the palate. Great flavors, nice that it now takes the edge off too!
