Flat flavors of orange are tasted, bitter with synthetic sugars and a misunderstanding of how to make a decent taste. The body is watery, obviously, but it serves no purpose other than to make platitudinousness even more platitudinous. Supposititious citrus flavors are pity falsifications of flavors deserving so much more. That, the decided lack of effervescence, and everything else, makes for twenty ounces of complete misery.
Taurine, B vitamins, guarana, ginseng, and 200 milligrams of caffeine cough up a buzz lasting four plus hours, I would almost round it to the five hour mark. The problem is that the kick just was not that powerful, and likely lasted solely because of its grossly awkward taste that forces much time to finish. Overall, of all the Rockstar Energy Waters, this is the worst of the company's worst spin-off.
