Very sweet. Candy start obscures any actual flavor until maple finally shows up in the middle and hangs in just through the beginning of the finish. Butter does appear but is generally elusive. Mostly this just tastes like medium grade sugar. Ok.
Purchased from Blue Sun Soda Shop (Spring Lake Park)
Very sweet. Intense and rich wintergreen and vanilla blend at the start. Shimmery maple appears in the middle and returns occasionally as a ghost in the long finish. Reasonably complex. Ok.
Purchased at the Saint Paul Midway Menard's.
Medium sweet. Bright natural Lemonade tones in the start clad a ginger and soft vinegar core that grows as it warms. Medium fire. Maple is present though muted. Slightly bitter natural ginger finish. Recommended.

Lakefront Brewery Golden Maple Root Beer: Very subtle maple. Very nice "creamy" flavor. Very sweet. Pretty good.
