This is also a review from a few weeks ago. (I had already taken this picture though, and as much as I would have preferred to show off that I’m still in San Diego, I was too lazy to take a different picture. Maybe next time.)
One thing I’ve learned is that I need to take better notes. All I wrote on the spreadsheet was, “It was good, but not great.” I gave it a score of 80. If I had a buhzillion dollars I’d probably open a bottle of Henry Weinhard’s and a bottle of A&W and maybe another one or two and drink some of each, possibly even in mugs that did not reveal the identity of the root beer until I was done rating them and comparing them against others. Maybe some day, when this hobby has taken over my life, and/or when I have a gazillion dollars, and the time, and someone or a small group of someones to rate the sodas with me (so that I didn’t have to drink four entire bottles every time I did a review).
