Ironbeer Soft Drink


Original 1917 flavor! I found this Ironbeer soda drink in a local supermarket. According to Wikipedia, “Ironbeer is a soft drink that originated in Cuba in 1917 and was created by Manuel Rabanal.” On the can label, it says “On a summer’s afternoon, in 1917, a mule-drawn, wooden wagon arrived at a popular cafeteria in Havana, Cuba. It delivered the first four cases of a new soft drink that would soon be called “The National Beverage.” Now, more than 80 years later, IRONBEER is still enjoyed for its refreshing flavor with just a hit of island spices.”

Ironbeer Soft DrinkUpon opening the can, there wasn’t any recognizable aroma coming out from the can and even if you sniff it for couple seconds, you still won’t sense any scents. However, after you pour it into a cup, there’s a lightly sweetened vanilla sort of aroma that you could smell and it reminded me the smell of Dr.Pepper soda drinks, but with less flavor aroma. The color and the texture were the same as Dr.pepper or Coca Cola soda drinks. As for the taste, the first taste was lightly sweet with subtle vanilla hints after you swallow down the sip. After couple more sips, you could tell it tasted similar to cream soda. As you drink more, you will notice that there’s a slight fruity taste when your mouth processes the sip.  If you compare it to Dr.Pepper, Ironbeer would be the less flavor version of Dr.Pepper.  However, it’s still very smooth, easy and pleasant to drink. There’s no aftertaste for it.

Overall, I love the taste of this Ironbeer Soft Drink and it’s a good alternative if you can’t find Dr.Pepper drinks. Just let you know that this soft drink is very hard to find if you are not in Florida, but again you can order it online if you are really craving for it.
