X-RAY energy drink, black

The X-RAY (or X.RAY as it says on the can) energy drink originates from Denmark, Harboe Brewery to be more precise. They also produce the ISO-TONIC energy drink which I have in my collection, although bruised and battered.

X-RAY tastes almost like Red Bull but not as pronounced and with a somewhat sweeter after taste.

Interesting to note is that although they proclaim to have a high caffeine content they actually only have 24 mg caffeine per 100ml compared to the 32mg per 100 ml that almost every other drink has.

The design of the can is not much to get excited about but Harboe deserves a pat on the back for being consistent with their colors. They also deserve a kick in the nads for the cheesy tag line: X-RAY your drink for the taste of strong power.

I'm not even going to bother picking that one apart.

X-rays - also called Röntgen rays after Wilhelm Röntgen, the man who "discovered" the phenomenon - are a form of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength in the range of 10 to 0.01 nanometres.

X-rays are generally considered invisible to the naked eye but Röntgen created an experiment where he managed to see x-rays without any sort of aid. This experiment is considered very dangerous due to the ionized radiation and is therefor not repeated today.

Seeing (pun intended) that x-rays are quite dangerous to humans I think there's quite a bit of evolution needed before we'll be able to acquire x-ray vision. An X-RAY energy drink will have to do for now.
