Bedford’s is one of those cool, “micro-brew” sort of root beers with lots of personality. It’s in a cool old-fashioned bottle, and strives to be very “local”. Unfortunately, the ingredients do not match the marketing. It’s just water, “color” and “flavors”, although there is a bit of “quillaia”, which grants it a bit of street cred. There is liquorice on the nose, and it has a pleasing aftertaste that doesn’t linger. Other than that, it’s pretty generic – not surprising considering the ingredients.
This is a dessert root beer – creamy and sweet.
