Product Shot 2 It's said to have a more "rooty" taste to it when compared to other root beer on the market. It's also not as carbonated as other root beer on the market and pours very smoothly out of the can.  Regular Barq's has 22.5 mg of caffeine per 12 ounce serving (similar to green tea), while Diet Barq's has no caffeine.

    It has a unique taste. Some may say it is too strong but unless you want a wussy root beer it is the best. Mugs, Hires and A&W all are weak in taste compared to Barq's

G. Jones: #barq_s_root_beer I love Barq's Rootbeer. As a matter of fact, it is much better than Mug, A& W and Hires. Will you please tell me why it not distributed in the 20 pack as the regular Barq's? Thank you. Jan 22, 13
