Old City Soda Root Beer
Old City Soda hails from the great state of Ohio. Their headquarters are in Cleveland. They have only been around a couple years and are starting to gain traction in the craft soda world. I picked this brew up at a local restaurant in Columbus. Their root beer is a more traditional brew and is made from scratch. I'm starting to see more and more of these...I guess we live in a more health conscious world these days. I think they did an admirable job here. First, the head is extremely praiseworthy. It has a lighter sarsaparilla core with a touch of rootyness. Then it goes into a rich vanilla and sweet molasses undertones. The finish is spicy and has a fruity raisin notes, which is all too smooth and rather enjoyable, I wish I had access to more local brews! 7.5/10.
