Caruso’s Legacy Robusto Root Beer

Caruso's Legacy Robusto Root Beer

Bottle and Label: Brown bottle with a fairly nondescript brown label

Ingredients: Filtered Carbonated Water, pure cane sugar, caramel color, natural and artificial flavors, maltodextrin, citric acid, sodium benzoate (preservative)

Smell: Strong licorice smell from the bottle with hints of wintergreen

Carbonation: Low level of carbonation. This brew is very smooth but also just a bit flat for my taste. A little more carbonation would be nice as there is almost no bite

Color: Dark amber

Head: Very tall, very foamy, and very long lasting. This is one of those brews that I had to stop pouring or it would have spilled out of my frosted mug

Flavor: Excellent traditional root beer flavor. It has the licorice and wintergreen that are staples of classic root beer flavor. It also had just a slight hint of vanilla. This brew tastes good from start to finish with no bad aftertastes present anywhere

Conclusion: Caruso’s Legacy Robusto Root Beer is a perfect brew for those who value a smooth, classic root beer. If you find yourself consistently liking root beers that go light on carbonation this root beer should be on your short list. The combination of a pleasing smell, well balanced flavor, and a very foamy head would make this a great pick for a summer BBQ or just a great any time root beer.
