2 oz Butterscotch Schnapps 6 - 8 oz good Cream Soda
You get a smooth, bright, butterscotch flavor and that slightly beery look.
If you replace the Schnapps with syrup, I can easily see it served to kids. On edit - the article was complaining about English drinking habits. Most English, like Europeans, think that drinking is okay in moderation, and encourage kids to learn to drink responsibly so they're not tempted to binge-drinking (unless, of course they're Football Hooligans) once they leave home. My understanding is that the first real alcohol kids drink at around 8 or so are Shandies; half pilsner and half lemon soda. I imagine the Harry Potter "Butter Beer" is a similar type product.
At least the homemade variety. I made a batch of root beer with my son and I told him it would make a great science project for school. He told me his teacher was all for it, but the school administration vetoed. Homemade root beer does have a very small alcohol content, but you would have to drink several liters of the stuff just to get a slight buzz and would probably throw up well before the alcohol effects ever kicked in.
