A very nice Red Bull clone from a supermarket in Amsterdam. I like the name, and the can design is much more appealing than many other own brand drinks, but other than that I don’t have much more to say about it. It is available in sugar-free, orange and shot forms so keep your eyes open for those reviews coming up.
Another own-brand energy shot, and I expected it to be sour and nasty… maybe it was due to these low expectations but I was surprised. It was quite sweet, with a very slight sour taste but not enough to ruin the experience. Great value if you can find one at a Kruidvat supermarket, stock up!
Woah, how much orange flavour can one squeeze in to a drink??!? Lots apparantly. This is the most orangy orange flavoured orange drink ever, and very sweet too. Imagine Tango, but concentrated loads and you’re nearly there. Nice though and despite the average caffeine content, it gave me quite a kick.
Much better (yes, I know I’m biased to sugar free drinks) than the full fat version, but not only due to the sweeteners. It appears to have a different taste to the sugary version – slightly more sour but not too much. It’s still a Red Bull clone, and a cheap tasting one at that so probably not worth hunting down if you’re in to that.
Technically this is not an energy drink. It doesn’t contain any caffeine despite me listing it with 0.01mg/100ml – this is just to stop it from breaking my ratings system. What it does contain in its place however is 0.02% hemp extract. Other than the sugar, you don’t get any other ‘revitalising’ effects, so the drink is pretty much just existing for the name and branding! Flavour-wise, it’s nice and fruity though, so I’d suggest you try it on that basis alone.
A black can with white designed writing on gives this drink a premium look. It is, however, just another Red Bull clone although a nice one at that. It has a smooth flavour not too dissimilar to Red Bull, contains the same amount of caffeine, and even comes from Austria. Sadly, it was priced the same as Red Bull – and given the choice, I’d go for the original!
I’m guessing, given the clue in the name, that this drink was supposed to be orange flavoured. It definitely had a citrus taste to it, but it was more akin to a tropical drink than orange to be honest. I also didn’t get that much of a kick from it despite the regular 30mg/100ml of caffeine in the huge 568ml can. Nah, I’ll not bother with this one again.
Big name, big can. This is a Red Bull clone. It’s sweet, nice, and there’s lots of it. Other than that, there’s not a lot more I can say. I always feel bad when I can’t think of anything else to write about a drink, especially when I like it, but there we go – it’s not original but functional.
Very cheap and widely available in Amsterdam – this tastes pretty good. It is a Red Bull clone, but it’s neither too sweet, too sickly, or too sour. I enjoyed it a lot and consider it nice enough to try again especially as it’s a lot cheaper than Red Bull itself. I would tell you more, but I’m afraid I couldn’t read the Dutch blurb on the can – so I’ll just leave you to try it for yourselves.
