Look at how un-shiny the cans are! The taste and effectiveness are also un-shiny. See rambling review below.
BTWs, the Rockstar site tells me this drink contains some shit called milk thistle. Sounds DELISH!
First impressions: doesn't taste like much. I suppose that's better than being immediately revolting like RED BULL COLA EW HAVE I MENTIONED IT'S GROSS?
Update: This stuff is really sweet, but not in an overpowering way. I wouldn't say I "like" the flavor, but it's inoffensive.
Further update: Rockstar claims this beverage is "lightly carbonated," but it has been open for like at least twenty minutes, and there's still a lot of bubbly noises happening in the can. Maybe it's the matte finish on the can. Though I doubt it's matte inside. I just wanted to write "matte finish." MATTE MATTE MATTE. It's like my friend Matty, but duller and metal-er.
Final update: It kind of just tastes like watered-down regular Coke. I only like Diet Coke. Because it's all synthetic and burns the enamel on my teeth. The Rockstar Cola seems to be somewhat effective caffeine-wise, but it is difficult to tell since the taste was not jarring in anyway. I'm already tired again. I might have to go acquire something better. Overall, for a regular caffeine fiend like myself, not worth it. 2/5 stars or whatever my scale used to be when I did these reviews all the time. Time to stop watching Very Mary Kate and outlining, and time to actually write this shit. Boo. Wish me luck, friends.
