Stewart's Fountain Classics Birch Beer

Stewart's Fountain Classics Birch Beer

So a bunch of my friends are always going on and on about "shower beers." Which is exactly what it sounds like, drinking beers whist taking a shower. They all talked about how great it is, so I decided to have my own version, "shower birch beers." I have to admit, it was pretty awesome. A cool frosty birch beer really complimented a steamy shower.
This is the most mild birch beer I have ever had. It doesn't have the bite that I've come to expect from this beverage. It tastes more like a root beer with one extra ingredient. It's not bad by any means, but I've just had better.

Goya Malta

Goya Malta

Imagine the following. It's Thanksgiving. Everyone has just sat down for a wonderful traditional meal. Suddenly your crazy aunt comes in and pours eight gallons of pureed prunes on everything. That is exactly what Malta Goya tastes like to me. It is the worst beverage I have ever tasted in my life.
Years ago, when I first moved into my current apartment, we had a taco party. Someone thought it would be a good idea to bring a case of this. We all in turn thought it would be a great idea to all chug them at the same time. I then spent the next hour laying on my bathroom floor cringing in pain. I didn't even get another one of these to drink while I wrote this review (which is how I normally do it). It's that bad that I never want the flavor on my tongue again. I wish I could give it a negative rating.
Like this beverage, my sister's boyfriend is from Puerto Rico. I guess people drink it down there like crazy. They can't get enough of it. I can't even come close to understanding that.

Saranac Shirley Temple

Saranac Shirley Temple

Did anyone else’s parents drag them to bowling alleys for their league nights? They would drink and bowl the night away, while you would hide out in the arcade area trying to beat Double Dragon? Eventually they would hand you a glass of sugary goodness, that is a Shirley Temple. It's basically Sprite mixed with cherry syrup. It’s a child's sweet, sweet dream. Okay I'm going back to playing Road Blaster now.

Arizona Arnold Palmer Lite

Arizona  Arnold Palmer Lite

Arizona iced tea has a taste. You could pick it out in a lineup with your eyes closed and mouth open. I think that prior to the "lite" version, I've only had the "zero" which is made with aspartame/poison. This one has HFCS, which is less tastefully disturbing. It's definitely got a distinct taste to it after not really drinking it for a long time, but it's better than I remember. Think of an Arizona iced tea with lemon and then pour some lemonade in it. Simple.

I have never had any other company's half and half, but would be interested in trying them. I've heard that Sweet Leaf has one that's very good, but hard to come by.

Dr. Pepper Cherry

Dr. Pepper Cherry

I wonder why major soft drink companies decided that cherry was the flavor they were going to add to all of their drinks. First there was Cherry Pepsi. Then there was Mountain Dew Code Red. Now Dr. Pepper Cherry. Maybe they tried making Dr. Pepper Orange and it just wasn't good.

This incarnation of cherry infused soda is alright. I like that it's colored red instead of the normal brown that Dr. Pepper is. Some sips taste like cherry soda with a hint of Dr. Pepper, and others taste the exact opposite. It goes down much smoother than normal Dr. Pepper, and doesn't have as much of the usual aftertaste. I got this can for free in downtown Portland. I'm assuming they were trying to get people to be interested in their products, but I doubt I'll ever buy this because it's not amazing.

Saranac Orange Cream

Saranac Orange Cream

I was a bit disappointed in this soda. I expected it to be like drinking a melted creamsicle. Instead it just tastes like generic pop lightly flavored with orange and vanilla. It also doesn't help that it's sweetened with HFCS. By the bottom of the bottle the flavor got stronger, but not enough to make me want to drink it again.

Mountain Dew Livewire

Mountain Dew Livewire

I am not a fan or original Mountain Dew. When they introduced Code Red, I enjoyed it but it wasn't the best. But when Livewire came out, I got really into it. I was drinking about a bottle a day. I couldn't get enough of it. These days, I'm not as crazy about it as I once was but it's definitely a good drink. It tastes like orange soda with a slight Mountain Dew after taste, but not as acidic. Not my favorite orange soda, but not bad.

Stewart's Fountain Classics Cream Soda

Stewart's Fountain Classics Cream Soda

This is good cream soda. I'm better at reviewing drinks than playing video games. I say this because my primary concern is to drink and tell you about good cream soda rather than focus on killing terrorists with 8 year olds that are better than me.

This cream soda really isn't anything you haven't had before. That is a compliment as I have had some horrid stuff in the past. I wish that it was with cane sugar but you can't really taste the corn syrup over the cream and/or vanilla.

Teddy's Root Beer

Teddy's Root Beer

When I saw this bottle I was excited because it reminded me of the IBC root beer "40's" (actually 32oz) my friends and I in high school would buy and drink around Tonawanda, NY. Sadly, this is no IBC. It tastes like any generic root beer, not bad but not amazing. Plus, the HFCS makes it a really heavy root beer. There's also a great drawing of Teddy Roosevelt on the label.

Stewart's Fountain Classics Key Lime

Stewart's Fountain Classics Key Lime

I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would. It tastes like a 7-Up or a Sprite, but minus the lemon flavor with a way more intense lime flavor. Okay that was probably a dumb comparison since those beverages are lemon lime flavored. It was good though. It would be great to be in an old timey diner and for them to have this on tap. I've never heard of Key Lime pop from a fountain machine before, but they claim it to be a "fountain classic," and I for one support it.
