I grabbed this the other day:
Brand: North Star Craft Soda Root Beer.
Origin: Forest Lake, MN.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Review: This wasn't great. It tasted like harsh carbonated water with a bit of flavor. The root beer flavor was quite weak, but at the same time, it had too strong of an anise flavor. No thanks.
Score: 3.5 out of 10.
