SBIG? A&W new vintage bottle

This could be considered bad, but I strangely find it good! Over the weekend, kinda had an impulse buy at the cash register and picked up a bottle of A&W rootbeer. Haven't had it in ages, and the thought of rootbeer sounded really good- but what do my its(k)notwood eyes notice right away? They have changed the bottle and label art! Apparently this happened sometime late last year. According to the website, this is called the "A&W New Vintage bottle"- They went back to their "roots" (pun intended) using the faux wood/barrel look, and made the bottle resemble a glass one- but it's still plastic. I appreciate the kitchy woodgrain pattern, and it tastes good too!
