Roaring Lion Energy Drink Review
The Roaring Lion Energy Drink promotes them selves as an Alternative to Red Bull. So why would I review the Roaring Lion Energy drink if I have already tried Red Bull. Well there are a couple reasons. First and foremost I am big on cost savings. Roaring Lion contains is 16.9 ounces, which is roughly twice the size of a normal Red Bull (8.3 ounces). Roaring Lion also costs about $1.50 per bottle. So this is a $0.50 savings for twice the energy drink. Savings also seem to get even better if ordered in bulk. When ordered in bulk you can pay as little as $1.00 per bottle. They also offer the options of serving this drink straight off the gun, which would be perfect for the bar or restaurant owner. Second I wanted to see how close in comparison the two formulas actually were. In order to do that I would have to try it. I did, and here's my thoughts.

Roaring Lion Energy Drink Review: Taste
Does it taste similar to Red Bull. You bet! It is so close that I actually did a blind taste test between the two. I poured red bull in one cup, Roaring Lion in another cup. I then had my girlfriend mix them up. After tasting both I had no idea which was which. So, there claims are true. Tastes just like Red Bull. The only downfall is that Red Bull as well as Roaring Lion have a slight medicinal aftertaste. This can be solved quickly by mixing with your favorite cocktail or by having a Jager Bomb! So there is really nothing new in the taste category so I will give it the same average rating as Red Bull - 7.5
Roaring Lion Energy Drink Review: Kick
On the plus side Red Bull did give a decent kick. Times that kick by two and you have Roaring Lion. They have twice the energy ingredients (Taurine, Caffeine) as Red Bull as the serving size is twice as big. Red Bull got a moderate kick rating of 8.0 so I will bump Roaring Lion's Kick Rating up to 9.0! While not the strongest it still gives a decent kick!
Roaring Lion Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Well they did a great job of duplicating the Red Bull taste, they upped the serving size in turn increasing the kick and the price is unbelievable when compared to Red Bull. I would have to say that anyone addicted to or used to Red Bull should give Roaring Lion a try. They probably won't even know the difference, until they look in their wallet. Another plus for this beverage is that it would be a viable alternative to Red Bull for restaurant owners and bar owners. Think of it this way. Your patrons order some Jager Bombs or their favorite cocktail. Substitute Roaring Lion and they won't even know the difference, especially if you are pouring out of the gun! Kick some of this savings back to your customers and not only will you be happy but they will too. Usually I don't like knock off energy drinks, but I will make an exception with this drink as the only thing they are trying to accomplish is save you and me money! Final Rating - a nice 9.1!
