"Since 1876"… would this be any good?
Brand: Hires Root Beer.
Origin: Plano, Texas.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Sweetener: High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Review: This tastes like a straight-up mix of popular root beers. It has the smoothness of A&W, with a little bite from Barq's. If you told me it was a mix of those, I would have totally believed it. There's a little hint of something else in the aftertaste, but it's pretty good overall. Nothing fancy, but a slightly better-than-average score from me.
Score: 6.5 out of 10.
