I like energy drinks, but I also don't like to imbibe too many calories, so it's nice to see there's a selection of low calorie energy drinks on the market. It used to be that there was only one variety per big brand, but a few more have popped up over the years. The latest I've stumbled across is this Monster Ultra. Sure, there's already a Monster Absolute Zero, and this one doesn't seem to add any new flavour, but the can informs me that this drink is a little less sweet and lighter tasting with a full load of Monster energy. That was good enough for me, as much as I like Monster Absolute Zero, I must admit it is a little sickly.
Turns out this one does exactly what it says on the tin. It really is a lighter tasting drink, instead of a slightly syrupy texture, this can has more focus on the fizz, and it's really easy to drink. It tastes a lot more flavoursome as well, definitely less sweet, and actually closer to the regular variety Monster drink, but of course with an even lighter taste. All in all, this is great, probably one of the best sugar free energy drinks I've tasted. Sure, it may not be completely calorie free, as it says on the can, but 11 calories for the whole thing isn't bad. This is a fine tasting kick of energy that I'm sure I'll be picking up again.
My rating: 5/5
