The Look: I really like the look of the two new Rockstar cans. This one comes in the traditional 16 oz Rockstar size. I think the color scheme they used works very well here. It list the ingredients on the back of the can and has the usual Rockstar stuff on the front. I also really like how they did the top of the can all in black. Very well done IMO. This is the kind of can that really draws attention.

Taste: Rockstar usually comes through pretty good on the taste of their drinks. I cannot think of one that has disappointed me yet. This one is no different. I open up the can and take a drink. I am greeted with a very nice cola taste that is cooling, crisp, and refreshing. I think the nailed the flavor on this very well. I haven't tried it yet but I think this would be a killer mixer for alcohol (assuming you are of age of course). Jack and Cola, Crown and Cola, or my personal favorite Jagermeister and Cola. There is no aftertaste here just a very refreshing cola.

Does It Work: I got a pretty nice buzz from this stuff. I don't know if it is because I drank it so quickly or what. This looks to have your standard Rockstar Energy Blend in it. I wish they could of went with a little less sugar, all personal preference though. This is your typical energy buzz, maybe slightly above normal.
Final Thoughts: I was rather impressed with the new cola from Rockstar. I think they really nailed the packaging and the flavor. I plan on trying this with some Jager soon to be able to try it as a mixer. I would drink this again even though it wouldn't be one of the first I would go for because of the above average sugar in it. If you are at the store and like cola, you should buy one and give it a try.
