As someone who grew up in Southern Minnesota, I've been raised to have a distrust in all things Iowan. It's in my blood. But my love for root beer is stronger than my negative feelings for Iowa, so I had to try this Iowa-born Millstream Root Beer.
Brand: Millstream Old Time Root Beer
Origin: Amana, Iowa.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Review: This had a unique flavor that I couldn't quite put my finger on. It's a bit herby with a little bit of anise flavor (but not too much for this anise hater right here). Good, but not amazing.
Score: 7 out of 10.
