Another energy drink, but luckily this time there were no floating chunks. See Eric’s Famous Energy Root Beer for that debacle. I was given this drink as I was about to embark on a twenty-hour drive from Wisconsin to Connecticut, so I welcomed the caffeine with open arms. The design of the can is interesting. The background behind the large “XS” is a jungle of buzzwords, like “explosive” and “performance.” Other than that it is standard for an energy drink. The root beer itself wasn’t anything to get excited about. The taste is exactly what you would expect: a blend between diet root beer and an energy drink, neither of which usually make for top tier ratings. Nonetheless, this drink did its job and provided energy for a long drive without making me want to throw up.
