Root beer

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A glass of root beer

Root beer is a sweet soda. It is traditionally made using sassafras or sarsaparilla as the main flavor.

It does not have caffeine, though some root beer makers add caffeine. It can be carbonated or non-carbonated. Modern, commercially produced root beer is generally sweet, foamy, carbonated, nonalcoholic, and flavoured using artificial sassafras flavouring.
