About 9 months ago, I reviewed Boylan Root Beer and Virgil's Root Beer. I wasn't impressed by either of them, but felt I needed to try them both again. So I cracked them open head-to-head:
Originally, I'd given them both an "average" rating: 5 out of 10. (Click here for the Boylan review, and click here for the Virgil's review.)
One of the things I said about Virgil's last year was that "it was SUPER creamy, but it was just missing a little something." And I said that Boylans was "fine, but it wasn't great." Well, after a few tastes of each the other night, I have to say that...
Virgil's tasted like anise water (too thin)
... and that...
Boylans just tasted a little burnt.
I think I was a little generous with a "5" rating for each last time. I would re-rank them as:
Virgil's: 4.5 out of 10.
Boylan: 4 out of 10.
