They were all Frostops, and I didn't have a great experience with Frostop Root Beer when I had it in 2012. So I wasn't sure if these would be OK or not. I started with the Red Birch Beer as I was doing some yard work.
This had a very red color. I had to pour some in a glass to show it off:

Brand: Frostop Red Birch Beer.
Origin: Hopkins, MN.
Purchase Place: Frattallones Ace Hardware, Minneapolis, MN.
Sweetener: High Fructose Corn Syrup and Cane Sugar.
Review: This was surprisingly good. I got a hint of cherry and cinnamon out of this, and it had a little sharpness. The best way I can describe this is like if you were to eat Bottle Caps candy and pop a Root Beer one and a Cherry one in your mouth at the same time. Boom. It'd taste just like this. A bit of root beer, a hint of cherry, and just a touch of cinnamon. Tasty. Goes down well. And it's nice that it comes in a larger resealable bottle - I enjoyed this over the course of 2 days.
Score: 9 out of 10.
