A&W, Mug, or Barqs, and why?


I like barq's because it just tastes the most like root beer to me.
#2
inb4 Brits hate on Root Beer for tasting like Geromlene.

Barqs has the most 'draft flavour' to it, Mug has the best creamy-ness, A&W has the best fizziness. My opinions.

I prefer Mug or Barqs.

A&W when at A&W fresh out of the fountain machine is absolute tops. But in terms of canned/bottled I'm just not enough of a connoisseur to give enough of a shit.

I'm British and what is this?

Just think Germolene or cough medicine. You can get a really crappy version of Rootbeer at Asda called Carter's. It's gross. Real rootbeer is better.

I like Barq's 'cause Barq's got bite, as in Barq's got caffeine. No point in decaff soda.

But what about Dad's, and Goose Island, and 1919, and so on, and so on.

):< u so meen.

I didn't know you could get it at Waitrose. How much per can? I'd seen it at various American stores around Manchester (Ashton-u-Lyne specifically), but never in a main store.

Propeller Root Beer is easily the best. It's locally brewed (NS) so I'm not sure of it's availability elsewhere, but my oh my...it is unbelievable.

I don't drink root beer because I don't have a vagina.

Then... Why... I...

Why's it called 'beer' and why would you drink it then?

edit: Just remembered I used to drink ginger beer, I can't talk.

I like Barq's the best as far as canned, but IBC beats out everything else.

^^
Root beer has its origins in what is referred to as "small beers." Small beers are a collection of local beverages (some alcoholic, some not) made during colonial times in America from a variety of herbs, barks, and roots that included: birch beer, sarsparilla beer, ginger beer and root beer.

When I was at a summer camp once when I was a wee lad, I remember one of the activities for older kids was making their own root beer. I tried it and it was the most awful concoction.

Tasted like fizzy water mixed with stale milk and dirt.

I love root beer. I prefer Barqs and A&W but it's an utter nightmare to get over here as very few people have a taste for it, same as other nations tasting Irn Bru I guess.

So little people over here know about it that I got ID'd for buying some of the Carter's shite in Asda.


Edit- I tried IBC last time I was in America and it was fantastic, but why is their cream soda a light brown colour?

Out of those three, Barqs.

IBC is the god of root beer, though.

Any cream soda I've ever seen, not just IBC, is kind of a yellowish color. I wouldn't call it brown.

I don't like cream soda though. The taste does nothing for me.
