The Look: This one comes in an 8.4 oz can(same as a Red Bull). On the front we get a chain linked background with a picture of a pit bull on the front. Underneath we get the slogan, "Attitude in a can!". I think this goes very well with the company name. On the back there is a short description of the drink as well as nutritional information.

Taste: The only indication I had about the flavor was the short description on the can. It states, "a lightly carbonated beverage with a great lemon/line ginger ale taste". So I open up the can and take a sip. I was very pleasantly surprised here with the flavor. I have tried so many Red Bull knock-offs I had originally feared this might be one(before reading the back). I was greeted with a very crisp lemon/lime flavor. It reminded me of a tamed down Sprite with less carbonation. I could of easily chugged this little can down but I wanted to enjoy it. There is no taste of any nasty chemicals or bad sugarfree aftertaste. Well done Pitbull!

Kick: So they have a nice package and a great taste, how well does it perform. From the back of the can I see they have 80 mg of caffeine along with many vitamins. I drank this first thing in the morning upon arriving at work(about 8am). I rely on whatever I drink in the morning to wake me up so I will not be drowsy at work. After consuming the can I got a very nice lift, nothing crazy here. I would say it is about the same kick as a standard sized Redbull (I think Pit Bull stomps them on flavor though). The drink kept me going until about lunch time (10:30, 11:00ish).

Final Thoughts: I think Pitbull has a good product here. They have about the same kick as your standard 8 oz drink with an above average flavor. I noticed from their website they have a bunch of other flavors (I will review them as I try them all). You can find all the information you want to about them at : http://www.hiphopbev.com/. If you want an alternative to your everyday Redbull flavored knockoff this is a great choice. I would drink this again without hesitation.
