It has been 2 months since I "Unleashed the Beast" and had a Monster. With this review of Monster Lo-Carb, I will have tried all 6 original flavors. In case you didn't know, the original flavors are as follows: Monster, Monster Khaos, Monster M-80, Monster Mixxd, Monster Assault, and Monster Lo-Carb. I really wanted to get a feel for what this tasted like so upon opening it, I closed my eyes, concentrated hard, and took a sip. Monster Lo-Carb is definitely better than the original Monster as it is not as syrupy or gummy. The flavor is best described as an apple-candy like flavor with subtle hints of grape and citrus. There is also much less sourness than original Monster which I like. I can't really see why people drink original Monster, but I can why some people choose this. It is much better. So, what is in Monster Lo-Carb? Well, you have 3.4 milligrams of riboflavin, 40 milligrams of niacin, 4 milligrams of vitamin b6, 12 micrograms of vitamin b12, 360 milligrams of sodium, 2,000 milligrams of taurine, 400 milligrams of panax ginseng, and a 2,500 milligram energy blend consisting of l-carnitine, glucose, caffeine, guarana, inositol, glucuronolactone, and maltodextrin. Not to mention only 20 calories, 6 grams of carbohydrates, and 6 grams of sugar. The caffeine content is rated at 160 milligrams per 16 ounce can. Now we can finally move on to the kick. Monster Lo-Carb is one of those drinks where I just don't get a good kick out of. They are the kind of energy drinks that taste good and sweet but don't give you a whole lot of energy. The kick I got lasted about 3 or 4 hours and it had a modest energy level. This would be a great drink to just sip on and hang out with friends. So, Monster Lo-Carb has a nice, sweet, citrus taste, a moderate kick, and a lot of energy enhancing ingredients. Rating? 7.8 out of 10.
