I have to say, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. With the note on the can to say there’s no alcohol, I was puzzled – turns out that the drink is brewed so basically tastes like non-alcoholic beer! I’m not a fan of beer, so I didn’t particularly enjoy it. Also, I couldn’t taste any grapefruit or lime… I’m sure it was in there somewhere but the brewed flavour was overwhelmingly the dominant flavour.
Honestly, I had to look up this drink on their web site in order to find out what flavour ‘Ice’ is. It turns out that it’s Grapefruit and Lemon, so it’s no wonder I couldn’t guess the combination. (Note: I’ve realised that the can actually mentions this too, I should have looked more closely!) It’s tangy and fresh, quite nice, but very sweet. The can also has the lift and slide style re-sealable can which is tricky to use.
What I like about trying different energy drinks are the moments when a flavour sends me back in time. Pit Bull Cranberry and Pink Grapefruit has answered a question I’ve had for many years – When I was 18 and discovered alcohol, there existed a drink known as Red. This was a caffeinated alcopop popular with students around the country at that time with an unknown fruity flavour. For me and my friends this drink was the tipple of choice on many weekends, but we never did find out what the ‘fruit’ flavour of Red was. Well, now I think I have the answer because this particular Pit Bull tastes how I remember Red tasting. It’s a good combination without any bitterness of the other Pit Bull drinks I’ve tried and I’m finally impressed with flavoured Pit Bull.
