If it is Hippo Size it must be good.  One of my first reviews on this site was Hippo Size Burley Birch Beer, a soda which I really enjoyed.  Although I gave the birch beer a score of 8, I almost immediately regretted not giving it a higher score.  Since then, I have been searching for another bottle of Hippo Size Burley Birch Beer to reassess its score.  With that background, I expected great things from this “Small Bottle, BIG Taste” root beer.

Whether it is Hippo Size Burley Birch Beer or Hippo Size Jumbo Root Beer, you simply cannot go wrong.  Hippo Size Jumbo Root Beer expertly blends its first rate root beer tastes, which play out in a smooth progression.  First, you are welcomed by a typical herbal root beer flavor.  Then, a subtle note of wintergreen makes an appearance.  These two steps in the progression, however, are just a lead up to the wondrous grand finale.  A sweet slightly butterscotch, slightly caramel blend takes over to finish the experience.  It is not a strong butterscotch flavor like a butterscotch root beer, but a just strong enough butterscotch flavor, undergirded by a rich and deep caramel.  Sound good?  It is.  This is close to a 9 out of 10, but for now it gets:

Overall Score: 8 of 10.
