Ethanol is an alleged blend of the company's Octane and Fuel varieties, a creative experience that is equally uncreative. The truthfulness is disputable, but based on my previous reviews, I would validate their claim. Each sip is super sweet with a dull edge of lemon and orange, hardly sour and with even less initial depth. Eventually traces of mango break through the dimensionless blend of shallow fruits, an originally abstract taste that soon replaces the yellow citrus as a predominate. Unfortunately, everything is muddled behind the beverage's thick sugariness, a distracting saccharinity that forces the experience to drink passively and without passion. The can was empty before I knew what happened, but it was a flavor not long remembered.
B vitamins, caffeine (187.5 mg), inositol, taurine, and guarana fuel a three plus hour buzz, one without subsequent crash or jitters. On the whole, in a race between Speed varieties, Ethanol comes in third out of four total racers.
