We had a work day in class today, so I had this up at the "instructor station" while some students worked:
Brand: Death Valley Sarsaparilla.
Origin: Inyokern, CA.
Purchase Place: Frattallones Ace Hardware, St. Paul, MN.
Review: This had a little herby, slightly "woodsy" bite to it. It was herby-er than root beer, but otherwise it could have been called root beer without much thought. It was OK - nothing great - but decent. I'll rate it just above average.
Score: 6 out of 10.
