Guide Review - Red Bull

I'm so used to my caffeine coming from coffee, tea or cola, I really didn't know what to expect for taste with Red Bull. Well, it doesn't taste like any of those drinks. Red Bull is extremely sweet, with a bit of a tang in there too. A little bit like Mountain Dew, I'd say. It was a little less fizzy than typical soft drinks. I definately got that familiar caffeine rush after drinking Red Bull.
The can is a little small, though the slim design did have an exotic feel to it after drinking from regular cans for so many years. Besides the energy-boosting caffeine in Red Bull, it has a selection of B vitamins (niacin, B6, pantothenic acid and B12) and the amino acid, taurine.
