A friend of mine picked up this root beer at a local gas station. I can imagine it now: between the vacuum-packed beef jerky and cigarette wrapping papers, a mildewed refrigerator with enormous bottles of soda and energy drinks, and this gem hiding in the back. Thanks Erik for your sharp eye.
Anyways, enough about gas stations — let’s talk about Frostop. It’s decent root beer with a traditional taste, nothing remarkable. However, the stability of the foam is rather remarkable for a root beer, with a long-lasting dense head like Guinness. A shame, really, since I don’t imagine the road warriors who normally buy it from the gas station carry a chilled glass with them, and so I suspect this feature goes largely unnoticed.
The jumbo size is obviously too big for one person (I shared it with a friend over about an hour), and the squooshy plastic bottle is rather downmarket, but I suppose what can you expect for a product sold in a gas station? All in all, a decent brew, with an extra point for the foaminess.Frostop Premium Root Beer,
