Red Bull Energy Drink Review
When it first came out Red Bull Energy Drinks were the coolest thing on the market. They are currently the number one energy beverage on the market, the reason behind this is that they are absolutely everywhere. I have tried them before and I am sure you have too. But just in case you have not tried one of the originals in the energy beverage category, I will share with you my Red Bull Energy Drink Review.
Red Bull Energy Drink Review: Taste
Alright I have been using the Red Bull energy drink as a staple for comparing other drinks. That might not be the best way to do it but almost everybody has had one of these. Well in my opinion there are way better drinks out there than this, Red Bull does not have the best taste. To me it seems like there is a medicinal aftertaste. The sugar free version tastes even worse. On the bright side this drink tastes unbelievable when you mix it with Jägermeister. These Jager-Bombs are just the thing to get you going all night at a party. The Jager-Bomb is a shot of Jägermeister dropped into a glass that is then filled with Red Bull. In my opinion,
one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century! Well unless you count a Reddy (Vodka – Red Bull mix drink). The review for taste gets a moderate 7.5.
Red Bull Drink Review: Kick
Alright the Red Bull Energy drink has an average of 9.64 mg of caffeine per ounce. When it first came out this was quite a bit of caffeine, but when you compare it too today's energy drinks you get the same or more caffeine and it usually comes in 16 ounce cans versus the Red Bull Energy drinks 8 ounce can. Overall it does give a decent kick, I am just saying that for your money you can get more kick. But since it is a decent kick, I will give it a moderate 8.0.
Red Bull Drink Review: Final Judgment
Alright I know that it sounds like I am bashing Red Bull but I am not. It is a great energy beverage but one can only drink so many of them before you figure out that there are better alternatives. It does have a decent kick, the flavor is mediocre, the price sucks (unless you buy in bulk) but I will give it a 9 out of 10 for a final judgment because with out this drink we would not have Bawls, Vaults, or Monster's of the world.
