The Look: I really like the look of the bottles that NOS came in. I feel it really appealed to the crowd is was targeting. The can does look nice but it doesn't have that same factor to it the bottle did. Basically a different color scheme to note the sugar free aspect and the NOS logo on the front. Alright look for a can but this would be so much nicer looking in the NOS bottle.

Taste: One of the great things about the original NOS was the great taste it had. I was hoping they kept the passion fruit taste with the sugar free version. I open it up and I am greated with the same wonderful scent of the original. They really did a great job here on the flavor even though it is sugar free. In fact I had to be careful because I was very tempted to chug it this morning. Just like the other flavors of NOS there is no weird aftertaste but there is a slight taste of the artifical sweetners(I have become accustomed to them though).

Does It Work: Shortly after consuming all 16 oz, I was greeted with a nice alertness. For the whole can you get a nice 260 mg of caffeine (great amount IMO). My yawning and tiredness became a thing of the past after downing it. I got a good solid 3 - 4 hour buzz with no crash (one of the reasons I love sugar free). Once again NOS has really came through with a great product.

Final Thoughts: Well I think they did a great job with the NOS sugar free. I do hope it becomes available in the bottles because I think that packaging is much better. Whenever I want a great sugar free energy drink this will be one of my top choices. I would drink this again without hesitation. I also recommend if you see one in the store to grab one and try it(you will not be disappointed).
