After having the best root beer of my life, I was leery of trying such a strange-sounding pee-colored soda.
This was my 3rd Empire soda, and they've just been getting better - their root beer was pretty bad, their orange was average, and this was pretty good.
Brand: Empire Banana.
Origin: Bristol, Rhode Island.
Purchase Place: Frattallone's Ace Hardware, Burnsville, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: The first sniff was strong of banana. And it tasted sweet and good. It was like drinking liquified banana Runt candies (remember those?). The flavor was sharp, but right on. It had a strong banana flavor with a slight pear aftertaste - which was just fine. For being slightly a "novelty" flavor, it was quite refreshing.
Score: 7.5 out of 10.
