Advantages: The tall cans look nice
Disadvantages: Didn't give me an energy boost and does not taste nice
Red Bull is a fizzy energy drink which comes in blue and silver coloured tall cans of which regular is the most common size but larger ones are sometimes available. The regular cans contain the same amount of caffeine as a standard cup of coffee. If you have ever seen the company's advertising you will know that their slogan is 'Red Bull gives you wings' which relates to the energy boosting claims of the drink.
After drinking a can of red bull I can definitely confirm that it did not give me wings! In facts, I felt absolutely no difference in terms of energy levels or anything like that at all after drinking it. I would be more willing to forgive this if it just functioned as a pleasant fizzy drink but it was not at all to my liking. I regretted pouring it into a glass as it is a pale, rather insipid yellowish colour which isn't particularly appealing. Maybe that's why it comes in cans rather than see through bottles!
However, the main reason I will not be buying this drink again is because of the taste which I found to be very sweet and not particularly pleasant. I like plenty of other fizzy drinks but Red Bull seems to lack a specific flavour and just has a generic sweet taste that can't be pinned down as a particular flavour. It wouldn't surprise me if it was made by melting down a bag of pick 'n' mix, dissolving it in lemonade and siphoning it off into a can...
Red Bull seems to be the most popular energy drink in the world so perhaps I'm all alone in my thoughts here but nonetheless I am giving it just the one star.
Summary: I would not recommend it
