Dark and Sioux City Ginger Beer

The first difference I noticed between this one and the Maine Root was the color. Maine was cloudy and slightly green, while Sioux City was clear and brown, like iced tea. Sioux City also paled in comparison when it came to flavor/taste. It didn't have the bite of the Maine Root, and while it has more punch than a ginger ale, it is a big meh on the ginger beer spectrum. Tasting it alone, without the rum, it reminds me of Sioux City's sarsaparilla with ginger added, and sort of an artificial flavor.

As for with the rum, it isn't any thing to write home about (though it is enough to blog about). I don't know what Barritt's is like or what the other five I have are, but this one seems to be sitting on the fence twixt ginger ale and ginger beer, so I'd rather have one of those two, than one that doesn't know what it wants to do.
