Go Fast! Sports Lemonade

Technically, the name of this energy drink also includes "energy hybrid lime with stevia"...or is it "lemonade lime energy hybrid with stevia"? Why do designers still use this crappy multi-line wording? It is so hard to read it and make sense of it.


This does smell and taste like lemonade, but like a very cheap lemonade. It reminds me a lot of those effervescent lemon tablets that flooded the Eastern European market after the collapse of communism. You dissolve them in a glass of water as per the instructions, yet they taste a little watery and have an odd chemical twist. Well, this is what the base of this drink is like and there is a lime twist followed by a heavy stevia presence. The lemonade is sort of refreshing and drinkable, but other energy drinks have pulled off the lemonade flavor so much better.


With 150 mg of caffeine in the can, the effects are very similar to the other Go Fast! drinks so I will just recycle this portion of the review from another one:

The kick comes in quick and it is jittery. My body felt energized before my brain was awake. Not a good combination if you are doing mental work, but het, perfect for physical activities. Give it another 5-10 minutes and the brain will slowly start to wake up. Once the active ingredients have been absorbed, I got a good 3 to 4 hours of top notch energy and didn't experience a crash when it all died down.

Cost - $2.59
Taste - 6.5/10
Energy - 8.8/10

Overall - 15.3/20...chemical-like lemonade flavor, but a very good kick
