Bottle and Label: Bottle is brown with a unique label that catches the eye, especially the large “Creamy Root Beer.” If the bottle is what matters, this one nails it.
Ingredients: Carbonated water, pure cane sugar, natural and artificial flavor, caramel color, gum arabic, and sodium benzoate as a preservative
Smell: mild to moderate root beer smell
Carbonation: medium level of carbonation, a bit of bite, but still fairly smooth
Color: When poured color is a dark brown, a bit like coffee.
Head: I was disappointed here. From the bottle, I was expecting a lot more fizz in the head, but it had one of the weakest heads I have seen in a root beer.
Flavor: While it disappoints in the “head” category, this root beer makes up for it in the all important taste department. It has a bit of bite, but it does not over do it. It also avoids what some brews do: covering up a lack of flavor with too much carbonation. Zuberfizz has a smooth flavor with a hint of honey. It is like a milder version of Henry Weinhard’s Root Beer (which is my favorite brew thus far). It has no bitter aftertaste at all.
Conclusion: Other than the weak head, this is a very solid brew that gets just about everything right. The flavor is smooth, the bottle is cool, the carbonation is good. It may be a little on the weak side in terms of flavor for some, but there are times when I just want a good root beer that I don’t feel guilty about chugging. This is a great any time root beer that I think just about everyone would like.
