Food Review: Dryck Julmust
This year, however, we ran across this:
“Swedish Festive Drink”
On the back, it adds: “Aromatized Carbonated Soft Drink”
So of course, after chilling per instructions, we had to try it.
What did it taste like? Mostly, a whole lot of not much.
It smells of something that I can’t quite define. Something I recognize but can’t put a name to.
It tastes mostly of water and sugar and that carbonated bitterness common to most drinks containing copious CO2.
There’s a faint taste of something vaguely fruity, but not fruit, like a lollipop flavor. Erin said it tastes like expired, watered down Pepsi. He’s not that far off. The bottle lists both hops flavor and malt flavor, and I guess that must be the vaguely familiar scent and tang.
Neither as bad or as good as we might have hoped, this festive drink fell a bit flat.
