CAP Root Beer:
Like a root beer gummy, without any chewy texture. Candy sweetness. Nice wetness. Light on spices, no wintergreen note. No mouthfeel or body, just linear, candy root beer flavour.
Tested at 5%. A bit weak, 5% wasn’t super bold.
Tasty Puff Rasta Root Beer:
Best stand alone root beer, like a one shot. More complete than FLV and a bit sweeter. But more limited in versatility. Nice syrupy body. Touch of effervescence.
Need 10-15% to get full flavour.
Pretty root beer-like. The herbal, molasses part of root beer. Seems pretty authentic. Would be essential ingredient to build a root beer from scratch.
TFA Root Beer:
The least authentic. Root Beer candy. Plastic type off note that’s present in the top notes and lingers in the aftertaste. Strong liquorice note.
TFA Root Beer Float:
TFA Root Beer with some creaminess. But it has a cinnamon-like spiciness TFA Root Beer doesn’t, out of place for a root beer. It stands out a lot, even at a low %.
FW Root Beer:
Too sweet to be really authentic. A bit candied? Some dark spiciness. Heavier on the spicy and herbal side with a lot less of the wintergreen and vanilla elements root beer has.
FW Root Beer Float:
Not a float. Like a cream filled root beer barrel candy, or a root beer flavoured popsicle with creamy centre. Not a bad flavour, just inaccurate.
LB Root Beer:
Flat root beer. Not too candied. No effervescence. Mouthfeel was ok for a beverage.
At 9%, some may find it very harsh. At 5%, far less harsh. Also not much difference in strength of flavour between 5% and 9%.
FLV Root Beer:
Most authentic, robust root beer. Dark, spicy. Really great wintergreen top note. Creamy, almost foamy finish. Has a hole in the middle of the flavour that needs filling.
Use around 4-5% for main root beer note. Can use as an accent as low as 0.25-0.5%.
