FLAVOR: Absolutely Zero, despite missing key elements of life on earth, actually has a lot of delicious flavor. I guess if I had to choose, I'd say it would fall under the "synthetic berry" category of fruitiness. It is also VERY smooth. If you hate most energy drinks for their chemical aftertaste (and foretaste, and duringtaste, let's be honest), but need massive amounts of caffeine delivered via not-coffee, this may be a good solution for you. Now I will attempt to grade some papers and let you know how I feel after drinking it for a bit.
EFFICACY: About halfway through the can, I am feel alert. Also, hungry. I'm glad I brought a granola bar with me. It still tastes good and seems to be working, though I have yet to tip over the edge into manic giddiness or more fidgeting than usual. Later: still not finished, but feeling slightly jittery and focusing well. Still later: I just finished the drink, and while I'm not experiencing a serious high, I drank it slowly and have felt consistently good energy throughout.
I'd recommend the Absolutely Zero. It's tasty and not overly strong (if that's what you're into).
