The US, may or may not be the only country with Root beer so could someone explain what it is?

It's a type of Soda found mostly in the U.S, but I've found a few speciality stores in Finland that sell it also.


Mug definately.

Well that isn't telling me what it is now is it. I looked it up on wiki and that says that the English drink dandelion and burdock is a slight variation of Root Beer, and if thats true then Root Beer is sick as f**k.
Why doesn't someone try and tell me what it tastes like?

It's hard to describe the taste of pop...

It's a unique flavor, I've never actually tasted anything like it that wasn't intentially Root Beer flavored.

It is an exceptionally delicious drink though.

It tastes sort of candyish I can't explain it, but a sweet candy flavour I guess.

I can't explain either, and I don't have a preference of the above.

A&W. I find it sweeter than the other brands of it. It's also one of my favourite type of pop/soda.

It sorta tastes like a sweet version of Coke or Pepsi. Maybe just to me.

You're lucky you've never tried it...because you're absolutely right. It's the most disgusting thing that you'll ever drink. I'd rather drink rubbing alcohol. Nasty stuff, root beer.

So, you'd rather posion yourself? Have fun. I think, I'll try to keep myself alive thanks.

Trust me, it's one of the greatest carbonated drinks you'll ever try. Just trust me.

I like it enough to drink it. It's probably not my favorite carbonated beverage though.
