If a deli in New York City did not offer this to drink, it would lose its deli license, I'm sure.

Bottle appearance:
Very unassuming bottle.

Soda appearance:
Looks just like ginger ale with a fast-dying head.

Smell:
Smells exactly like celery.

First Impression of taste:
My initial take on this is of ginger. Greg thinks it tastes like a flat Vernors.

Second Impression:
The celery seed kicks in quickly, but it's not as gross as you might be thinking.

Flavor:
Just like the name and ingredients imply, it tastes like celery. It is fresh and clean and really tasty.

Carbonation:
Med/high - fast forming and fast-dying head, nice prickle as you drink it.

Full Description:
This isn't a gimmicky drink like some of the exotic sodas - it is just a celery seed flavored soda that has been around for years. I really like it, but I used to drink it back in college all the time. It tastes great despite the fact that a vegetable based soda isn't "normal". Greg is clueless on this one - he can't taste the celery at all and just feels it's a wimpy ginger ale.

Score:
Greg and I don't agree on this one, but as I mentioned above, he doesn't have a very refined nose or pallet. He gives it an apathetic 4 and I give it a 5 - I love this stuff!
