Crooked Oak Root Beer

Crooked OakThis root beer bottle screams coolness and class.  It lists the production code, batch code and the specific approvers on the outside of the bottle.  Wow – It makes you feel sort of special just to have this bottle in the fridge . . . let alone pour it into the boot mug and sip away.

This brew had a massive head, but it dissipated so quickly that if you blinked you missed it.  FYI, I tried to miss it.

Unfortunately, they are not very descriptive in the ingredient department, so all that I know is that it has natural flavors.  This could be by design though, because they emphasize how important simplicity is to them.  These natural flavors give the brew a little bit of a sharp bite at the end of every sip . . . maybe a little bit of licorice and clovers . . . and maybe some other things as well.  I almost feel as if this root beer wants to be creamy, but the bite at the end of each sip stops the creaminess in it’s tracks.

I like this root beer a lot, but I feel like it lacks a depth that’s found in all of the “A” rated brews.  It’s a little too simple for my taste.  Some of my favorite flavors like vanilla and honey don’t seem to be present and at least not in the spotlight.
