AJ Stephans Root Beer

AJ Stephans Root Beer

Here's another flavor I was thinking of ordering off of Galco's but instead found at the Fresh Market. I do like the old-tyme lettering on the label, but one thing on the label did trouble me. In the list of ingredients it lists "Flavor." That's it! Just "Flavor"!! Way to be ambiguous there, AJ!

As for taste, it's a mixed bag. Up front the taste is nice, bitey and rooty. Then it just subsides and has a sort of diet soda aftertaste. Yeah, it's that weird, even though it's sweetened with sugar. Ah well, won't be one I'll be getting again in the future.

Sweetened With: "Cane Sugar"

Verdict: Worth trying at least once
