Ingredients: Carbonated Water, cane sugar, malt dextrin, citric acid, natural flavors, caramel coloring, and sodium benzoate
Smell: Strong wintergreen smell from the bottle with a nice hint of licorice to balance it out. The licorice smell becomes stronger after it is poured
Carbonation: High carbonation gives a nice bite from beginning to end and manages to do it without overwhelming the flavor
Color: Almost black
Head: Short but pretty foamy and lasts for quite awhile
Flavor: This brew has a very strong traditional flavor. The licorice and wintergreen are dominant with licorice being the strongest flavor. The strong flavor works well with the heavy carbonation and there is no bad aftertaste
Conclusion: Gray’s Root Beer is another robust root beer. It has a strong smell and a strong flavor. If I could think of one word to describe it I would use, “refreshing.” This is a perfect root beer for a hot summer day. In fact, as I’m drinking this it is upwards of 110 degrees outside and so I am finding it particularly enjoyable. This is a perfect summer brew and the strong flavor would make it a great compliment to a meal.
