365 Every Day Value Root Beer (Whole Foods Brand)

Bottle and Label: A pretty generic looking brown can

Ingredients: Filtered Carbonated Water, cane sugar, natural root beer flavor, citric acid, caramel color (from cane sugar)

Smell: The smell from the can is very hard to discern. Mostly some licorice hints. The smell is still not very strong after being poured with licorice and wintergreen being dominant.

Carbonation: Medium-high level of carbonation gives this brew a pretty good bite

Color: Nearly black

Head: Very tall and very foamy. I had to stop pouring into my tall frosty mug or it would have overflowed on the table. It is also very long lasting.

Flavor: Pretty traditional but a little bit on the weak side (much like the smell). Licorice and wintergreen are the dominant flavors but the stout carbonation makes it hard to discern others. There is also a slightly bitter/medicinal aftertaste

Conclusion: I went to this brew really not sure what to expect. I mean, it’s a store brand and those aren’t typically equated with quality. That said, I was pleasantly surprised that 365 Root Beer is a passable and moderately enjoyable beverage. If you shop at Whole Foods a lot this brew might be worth a try and you could certainly do worse. Also, this would be a great choice for a float because of the very foamy head.
