It is vile! It reminds me of the liquid I had to take for a bowel prep before my surgeries. The burning esophagus is not quite as pronounced and I'm hoping that it doesn't have the same effect on my intestines. I left the can on my desk, and mistakenly took a second sip - my co-workers did not appreciate the scream of disgust.
He claims that it is better if the drink is chilled, but I'm not risking it. I'm also thinking I'll never try a Red Bull. Why in the hell would people actually drink these things?
ps - I just looked up Taurine - it was first isolated in Ox bile - need I say more?
