AJ Stephans Root Beer
Brand: AJ Stephans Root Beer.
Origin: Fall River, Massachusetts.
Purchase Place: Frattallone's Ace Hardware, Burnsville, MN.
Sweetener: Pure Cane Sugar.
Review: It's no secret that I don't care for "fancy" root beer. I had heard this was going to be a fancier one, so I wasn't expecting much. But it was OK! It had a sharp bite, and a hit of anise and vanilla. It had a slightly weird aftertaste, but it wasn't horrible. My wife thought it tasted a little like aftershave. (Weird.) It was better than I thought it would be, but not fantastic.
Score: 7 out of 10.
