Incult effervescence and stentoriously synthetic saccharinity gives the twelve ounce beverage a very soda-like feel, especially its dimensionless taste. The lime is a flagrantly artificial flavor, lacking the pungent acidity of the actual citrus, as well as the fruit's nuance and grace, engineering an ersatz experience that tastes like Sprite Zero with the lemon surgically removed. The customarily dynamic duo sucrose and ace-k do the sweetening, but they are not sweet enough here to fit the bill of the billed "limeade" on the bottom right of the can, nor can they furnish the weight to quench the thirst on a hot, humid day- though I guess we do not get many of those in February.
The kick is a disappointment, lasting an hour and a half when it should have and could have been more potent, Each can contains: B vitamins, taurine, and 114 milligrams of caffeine. Overall, Red Bull The Lime Edition Sugar Free looks better than it tastes or feels.
