Sprecher Lo-Cal Root Beer Review Observations:
There is no aspartame in this lo-cal soda, which is refreshing in a diet.
This is the first “official” diet root beer review we have done at Handy Father. Sprecher Lo-Cal Root Beer is a good choice if you feel the need to drink a diet soda. It is not, however, a good substitute for non-diet root beer.
The head is poor, and doesn’t last even in a frosted mug. The more you drink, the worse it tastes, almost like it had some sediment that makes the bitterness sink to the bottom of the soda.
“It smells like a new pair of shoes”
“It is certainly not creamy. I can taste vanilla, but not really the WI honey they are bragging about on the label. Maybe the diet taste overpowers the honey?
Overall, I don’t think it is disgusting for a diet soda…. BUT if I want root beer, this is not what I would choose.”

Sprecher Lo-Cal Root Beer Claim: (from packaging)
Our caffeine free, reduced calorie Root Beer gets its guilt-free flavors from just a touch of pure Wisconsin honey combined with real vanilla and a host of aromatic botanicals. Like our other sodas, it is fire-brewed in our handmade brew kettle for a decadent, refreshing creaminess. For optimum enjoyment serve chilled in frosty mugs. Enjoy in moderation.
Closing Sprecher Lo-Cal Root Beer Review Notes:
Why does the package say to “enjoy in moderation”? This may be the only diet soda we review because I’m not willing to sample anything with aspartame in it.
This review was conducted by 5 people today, three handy fathers, and two handy mothers. We gave it a 1.7 out of 5 stars on the same scale as the regular root beers.
