Cool bottle there John, it's damn good to see they made something different.

You got any odd labels? Different style bottles?

i really hoped there would be more interest and comments about this bottle. any ideas about it? i always wondered what flavor was bottled in these.

I don't like ACL bottles, but I'll make an exception for this one! For some inexplicable reason, I like it... I figure maybe they bottled root beer in it, because amber is usually synonymous with root beer?

Hey John. That's a great bottle. I saw one at the Knoxville show about 15 years ago. They wanted $75 for it I think. I know it's rare, but that's about it. I always associate amber glass ACLs with either rootbeer (like Wheelah pointed out) or chocolate.

i'm leaning toward it containing chocolate drink myself. kist had a seperate bottle for rootbeer which was labled kist rootbeer. maybe one day when it's nothing going on i'll get out all my kist bottles and take a newer picture. it's grown alot since i started posing in 2005.
