Kutztown Root Beer

Bottle and Label: Brown bottle with a nice blue label that looks well designed and has all the text in fonts and colors that are easy to read

Ingredients: Triple Filtered Carbonated Water, pure cane sugar, natural and artificial flavor, citric acid, sodium benzoate (a preservative), yucca extractives and acacia

Smell: Strong licorice smell from the bottle with a nice hint of vanilla

Carbonation: Low level of carbonation that offers very little bite and makes the brew seem a bit flat

Color: Dark brown color

Head: Just a few bubbles with absolutely no foam

Flavor:  Traditional root beer flavor with licorice and wintergreen being the strongest. Unfortunately, there is also a slightly medicinal aftertaste that spoils the enjoyment of the other flavors

Conclusion: Kutztown Root Beer does not get enough right to rise above the pack. In fact, it falls short in most categories. The biggest downside to this brew is the slightly off flavor. The medicinal taste was just enough to be distracting and to detract from the enjoyment of this root beer. It’s not bad enough to give a full thumb’s down, but by my taste buds it definitely ranks below average
