***Note: This root beer used to be called Beaver Soda Retro Root Beer. It changed its name some time 2010-2011, and it has not been re-reviewed, but barring any formula changes it should be the same. We at RBR regret the loss of such a creatively-named soda.***
Vintage Soda Rodeo Root Beer is one of few truly unique root beers, with no comparable product on the market. It is very light and herby, with an aroma of mint, cinnamon, roots, and (strangely) Jagermeister liquor. It has a fresh, tinny flavour and no aftertaste. It seems as if the manufacturer has chosen to simulate root beer flavour by blending herbs and spices rather than use the traditional flavouring agent (the ubiquitous "artificial flavour"). According to the ingredients list, the flavour is composed of vanilla, corriander, clove, and chicory root. Rodeo Root Beer both looks and tastes like an energy drink, which, according to their website, is what the manufacturer intended. This root beer would be perfect just before an extreme sport, and it would also make an excellent marinading root beer.
This is a 100% Canadian root beer, made in Surry, B.C. Check out their website at http://www.vintagesoda.ca/.
