SOMETHING smells about Not Your Father's Root Beer, and I'm not talking about the heavy dose of vanilla extract that flavors the suddenly popular brew.

Described as "ale with the taste of spices," it tastes exactly like soda and contains 5.9 percent alcohol. Two other versions sold in large bottles contain 10.7 percent and an astonishing 19.5 percent alcohol.

    Spoiler alert: we review this beer in tomorrow's podcast, and I mention how the whole setup is fishy and probably brewed with a bigger conglomerate. Looks like my hunch was right.

      "One day, he serves it to a woman and watches a tear roll down her cheek as she declares, "You just brought back memories of me being a little girl."

      There are other gems, including the discovery of a 17th-century "leather-bound scroll" filled with brewing recipes from a seafaring ancestor who, legend has it, won a brewery in a card game."

    Pabst has stepped up to help meet the high demand. I, for one, would really like to try it, but I don't know if it's available anywhere here in California yet.

    I finally had a chance to try this stuff over the weekend. I bought (2) 6-packs. It cost me $26. It tastes EXACTLY like a sweet root beer without even a hind of beer/hops after taste. I would hate to experience a hangover on this stuff though.
