|Teddy's Root Beer|

Reviewer "Aristophanes": 2/10
Don't drink this root beer! The bottle is emblazoned with several claims and slogans, all of them either misleading or simply false. I will address each individually:
The bottle was flat, with no carbonation, and no head formation upon pouring. It was very dark and opaque, suggesting a concentrated flavour, so I was surprised to discover it had no aroma whatsoever. The taste reminded me of a melted freezie - alarmingly sweet, syrupy, and cloying. I did detect a creamy vanilla taste, which is the only reason this root beer gets a 2/10 instead of a 0. After drinking a third of the bottle, I dumped the rest down the drain.
Some more information:
- Made in Everett, Washington. This is also where Boeing assembles the 747 jumbo jet. Perhaps the aviation lubricant and root beer lines were accidentally crossed during bottling?
- I acknowledge that the bottle may have been flat. To be fair, if I see Teddy's again I will give it another try. Reluctantly.
