Redbull is pretty much the classic energy drink. It tastes really good but it has that energy drink taste. I don't know how else to put it but it's the general flavor for when they are not clearly another flavor. Red Bull could be better however it tends to not be as strong in the energy aspect of itself. Red Bull really likes to over price itself also. It's a case of you're paying for the brand. I've seen the little 8.4oz cans run higher around 2$ or 2.50$ while a rockstar costs me around 1.50 and a monster around 1.88 or so. In terms of price they don't do well paired with the lack of caffeine it doesn't earn them many buys from me. I won't turn down a redbull though any day they are still a good beverage but being the earliest energy drink they can price jack a bit. I still recommend it if you want an energy drink but maybe not a 16oz.
