It tastes like root beer but better. All the flavours just blend together and work so well together. I'm still very interested in the Root Beer .... but I could do with a little more than this to go on..... can you give me a sense of 'all the flavours' what flavours do you taste and which are the more prominent ones, which are in the background etc? ... how sweet/sharp etc. is it? .... is there much/any throat hit from the anise type ingredients? Have you tried any other root beer type flavours you could compare it to? I'm not going to be drinking it so I don't much care what it tastes like on your finger.
