This fine country is dotted with root beer oases (I’m not sure if I have ever seen the plural form of oasis before). One such oasis, which I may have to make a pilgrimage to someday, is the Old Town Rootbeer Company in Temecula, California. They carry over 100 varieties of root beer, including their exclusively bottled Old Town Rootbeer Company Root Beer.
This root beer grew on me. The first few sips were alright, but nothing special. As a drank, however, the flavors distinguished themselves, resulting in a quite tasty root beer. Old Town Rootbeer Company Root Beer has a sugary caramel flavor. The caramel quality then gives way to the taste of a touch of honey, and a hint of molasses. The flavors work well together. The honey was an especially welcome flavor. I thought this root beer had just the right strength, and was a worthwhile root beer offering.
