Most of the other review sites seem to think that it is mandatory to give the “mass produced” or readily available root beers a low score, but I like A&W. It is creamy and smooth, and has a longer lasting head than anything else in this category. I didn’t take good notes as to why I liked it so much, and honestly, my palate is not that refined to taste the various spices that some of the people mention, I just know if I like it or not — and I like A&W. Perhaps I can amplify this post after another bottle of this liquid goodness. I would be interested to see if there’s a difference between the cans or the bottles, and if I can get a hold of it, I’d like to get some in glass bottles to see if it is any different. I have a lot of other root beer to review first, but I suspect that this post will be updated at some future point.
