Olde Rhode Island Molasses Root Beer

This root beer had the WORST label I'd ever seen.

Olde Rhode Island Molasses Root Beer
It looks like it was designed by a 9-year-old who's using a computer for the 3rd time ever.

Seriously. Look at this label. And that's not discoloration
at the top and bottom - that's part of the design.

Brand: Olde Rhode Island Molasses Root Beer.

Origin: Bristol, RI.

Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.

Sweetener: Cane Sugar.

Review: The taste lived up to the label: it wasn't great. There was a bite that was OK, but the aftertaste was just a little off. A bit "burnt" or chemically. I don't get any special "molasses" flavor from it, and molasses isn't an ingredient. I noticed it was bottle by Empire, and that makes sense: I've had 4 other Empire sodas, and they've averaged about 4.5, so just below average on my rating scale. This was just below average too.

Score: 4 out of 10.
