Hank’s Gourmet Root Beer (Philadelphia Recipe)

hanksBottle and Label: Bottle is brown with a nice, classy label. The label has an embossed, metal look that makes you feel like you are drinking a beverage the brewery is proud of

Ingredients: Filtered carbonated water, cane sugar, caramel color, natural and artificial flavor, sodium benzoate (to protect flavor), quillaia and yucca extracts, citric acid and acacia

Smell: very mild root beer smell. If you like a strong smelling brew this might not appeal to you

Carbonation: mild-medium level of carbonation, there is a bit of bite initially but it goes down smooth

Color: A dark amber color that works well

Head: The brew had an excellent, fizzy head when poured in a frosted mug. The head among the best I have seen in a root beer

Flavor: This is one of those brews that is a great “multipurpose” brew. The flavor is on the mild side, so if you like a strong root beer flavor you might not like this brew. On the other hand, this is a great brew for everyday enjoyment. The flavor is one that could easily be enjoyed with a meal or with ice cream. Basically, it’s not especially memorable in the flavor segment, but it’s far from bad which makes it great for general use.

Conclusion: I would recommend this brew to anyone because it has a flavor and look that anyone who enjoys root beer would like.
