Rat Bastard Root Beer is an irreverent offering from Real Soda.  I could not find much information about Rat Bastard.  The website http://www.skeleteens.com found on the bottle cap is no longer in use.

Rat Bastard’s bottle is focused on proclaiming offensive language and broadcasting crude, suggestive double meanings.  Previous iterations of the Rat Bastard label used even more offensive language than the bottle used for this review.  Could Rat Bastard’s disagreeable presentation be overlooked if the root beer itself was agreeable?  Absolutely!  Is Rat Bastard Root Beer agreeable?  No!  It is perhaps as distasteful as its label.

Rat Bastard Root Beer has a harsh bite.  It effectively stuns the inside of your mouth.  My daughter recommended that I warn root beer drinkers that if you drink Rat Bastard Root Beer “your taste buds might die.”  The harsh bite got worse as I continued to drink.  I noticed that my mouth was becoming dry as I drank.  Perhaps the unconventional herbal blend of American, Siberian & Korean Ginseng, Jasmine, Clove, Dong Quai – Angelica; Skullcap (Mud Dog Weed), African Capsicum, Ginko Biloba, Gutu Kola, Goldenseal, Echinacea, Reishi & Shitake & Cordyceps was damaging my salivary glands.  Perhaps I am exaggerating.  In any event, I would not recommend this brew as it is not very good.

Overall Score: 3 of 10.
