I’m a big fan of lemon flavoured energy drinks, especially chilled ones opened on a hot summer’s day because they are usually very refreshing. This one was so close, but the lemon flavour is just slightly too strong. It’s sugar-free (without making a song and dance about it on the can) which is I am assuming to avoid the sugar-tax imposed on high sugar beverages in the UK.
A fresh and very sweet sugar-free energy drink. It’s so sweet in fact that you’d struggle to believe it’s sugar free. Very nice, very refreshing.
I drank this one with memories of the other Aspire drinks close to hand… and as I suspected I didn’t enjoy it. It’s really bitter and watery, with no real fruity flavouring or sweetness to it at all. It tastes how you’d expect something really healthy to taste! There’s no tropical or lemon hints there at all, sorry…
A nice little lemon-lime energy drink. The selling point of this one is its use of natural fruit juice instead of artificial flavourings. I think it really makes a different because it’s fruity and refreshing… it’s just a shame that fruit juice isn’t low calorie!
I’m a massive fan of lemon energy drinks and this is no disappointment. It’s pretty much Lemon Fanta with caffeine and goes down a treat. The can is larger than normal UK energy drinks (at 355ml) and of course includes the associated increase in caffeine and sugar as a consequence.
A very nice lemon and lime flavoured energy drink. Quite often with the lemon/lime flavours, they taste like someone has used way too much cordial. But, this one is balanced just right. This is the first ESTAR drink I’ve discovered and looking at their web site they seem to have many flavour varieties. If I come across any others I’ll be sure to grab and review them quickly.
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.
A complete winner. Zero calories and a fresh citrus taste. It’s not as harsh as lemon, and not too sweet. A very smooth and refreshing drink which packs a decent caffeine kick. Definitely one for sporty energy drink drinkers.
It tastes nice, but it’s basically diabetes in a can. According to the web site it “delivers higher levels of energy than current market leaders.” which is technically correct – it packs a whopping 62 kcal per 100ml which at least rivals Lucozade, but delivering it in a 250ml can and comparing it to other similar products it really does pack a lot more energy in the form of sugar I’m guessing from looking at the carb content.
