Berghoff Famous Root Beer

Bottle and Label: Brown bottle with an attractive, traditional label that fits the tradtional taste of this brew very well

Ingredients: Carbonated water, pure cane sugar, caramel color, sodium benzoate (preservative), natural flavor, and citric acid

Smell: Slightly fruity smell from bottle, not too weak and not too strong

Carbonation: Medium level of carbonation with a bit of a bite on the tongue and back of the mouth

Color: Lighter brown than most root beers, overall a very pleasant color that suggests a balanced brew

Head: A nice, foamy, and long lasting head when poured in a frosted mug

Flavor: Strong, traditional flavor and very unpretentious. This is not the root beer to pick up if you are looking for something exciting. It’s one to pick up if you are looking for a good brew to chug on a hot day or to offer at a party. It is unoffensive and easy to like so anyone who likes root beer should feel comfortable with this brew.

Conclusion: This brew gets everything right in terms of flavor, drinkability, smell, carbonation, and head. It does not try to be adventurous in any of those categories, but it does all of them well. Often a root beer tries to be too much and falls flat, this one shoots for the middle ground and hits a bulls eye. It’s not unique enough to garner an editor’s choice, but I would certainly recommend this brew to anyone. So, if you see Berghoff root beer in the store, don’t hesitate to pick it up and try a bottle. You won’t be disappointed.
