Independent Knockout Review

Knockout Energy Drink seems to portray the tough man (with the fist with brass knuckles on the can), but it also markets itself to the common man, advertising itself at "the beat down energy price of $1"

There are a number of energy drinks that push a tough image, yet at the end leave you flat. To be the bully on this populated block, you need to deliver a energy fueled rush along with being gentle on the taste buds,

I was sent some Knockout to try out, so I'll see if its got what it takes.

Taste

The first sip was more of a wimpy right hook then the knockout punch I was expecting. Now I see why it's a discount energy, they put $0 into taste development.

As generic as can be, a Red Bull knockoff. Not that there is anything wrong with Red Bull, but come on, try and set yourself apart a little bit.

Knockout's taste comes with a good amount of carbonation with a sweet taste, with close to no aftertaste.

Effect/Verdict

As much as the taste left me wanting more, after consuming the entire can, the energy it provided left me wanting more as well (not what I expected since the can says it contains 320mg caffeine!).

As I did get a mild pick me up within 15 minutes of consumption, mild was as high as it got. At the end of the day, Knockout Energy Drink gave me enough energy rush to get me through a boring movie, but no where near the rush to climb in the ring fearless.

Yet, it's only $1, so I guess in this instance you really do get what you pay for.
