Another review:
My sister brought home one bottle (1 Pint .8 oz (500 mL)) of Virgil's Special Edition Bavarian Nutmeg Root Beer last week. We shared the bottle. This root beer comes in a unique bottle with a flip cap. This bottle is so nice that most people would keep this as a collector's/souvenir item - my sister is keeping this bottle. On the label, it says that this root beer won an award for "Outstanding Beverage". It's micro-brewed with 100% natural ingredients including: anise, honey, licorice, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, wintergreen, cassia oil, sweet birch, molasses, carbonated water, natural caramel color, and unbleached cane sugar. This special edition root beer uses well water from the Bohemian Forest region of Bavaria. Virgil's say on their bottle that Bavaria is one of the purest sources in the world for water. I've actually visited part of the Bavarian region in the past, and I have to agree with Virgil's in terms of excellent water and brewing coming from the Bavarian region.
