Rhode Island makes shitty root beer. Or so I found out on Wednesday night when I tried this:
Brand: Empire Root Beer.
Origin: Bristol, Rhode Island.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: It wasn't smooth, but it didn't really have bite either. It was like it was trying to be both, but it failed at both - it needed to pick a team and stick with it. I didn't care for the taste. It wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't purchase this again.
