Growler courtesy of hopscotch. Clear brown pour. The nose is pure root beer. It’s a little blah, with bland malt, sarsaparilla, and vanilla notes..

Draft at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours a cloudy brown. Small white head. Minimal lacing. Strong aroma of sarasparilla. Flavor of the same. Very unique beer. Feels like you are drinking a soda. Not something I’d want to drink every day, but definitely a nice experimental brew.

Growler... Murky prune-colored lager with a mid-sized, foamy, off-white head. Smells like cream soda with a small splash of sassafras tea or root beer. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is a reflection of the nose - a luscious, sweet, yummy marriage of cream soda and root beer. Finishes crisp and moderately sweet with a nice root-candy nuance. Thanks goes out to StFun for shipping this growler my way!
