Today we did an IBC Root Beer review. Five of use gave our impression of this creamy root beer.
“IBC Bottles Memories”
The initial impression was that it had a sweet, creamy flavour almost like the flavour you get when drinking the liquid from a root beer float. Likened to the barrel root beer hard candies. Maybe too much (HFCS) High Fructose Corn Syrup? The sweetness is not a good sweet, like honey, or natural sugars.
IBC Root Beer has a mild anise scent.
There is a fairly high level of carbonation which is expelled into the foamy head. The head on IBC root beer is pronounced when poured into a frosted mug, but it dissipates pretty quickly.
IBC root beer is pretty dark in color, but it is simply the fact that caramel coloring is the third ingredient behind carbonated water and high fructose corn syrup.
I don’t find anything special about this root beer. It is drinkable, but not memorable as described on the packaging.
