RATING: 6.9 OUT OF 10. 

     I'm not mysophobic by any means, but I do appreciate it when things are clean. And I think most people would agree. So when I heard of a company that sells a "clean energy drink" I had to see what all the fuss was about, and after a quick email exchange, I acquired some samples. So without further ado, here's what I think of Runa Clean Energy.

     The can itself is certainly very clean and sleek, with its silver 8.4 ounce bullet can. While I have seen better package designs, I do enjoy the simplicity of Runa. As I looked for a flavor on the can, the only thing I could find was the word "original" which leads me to believe that this could either be a Red Bull clone or something very unique. Thankfully, it was the latter. It's very difficult to describe the flavor of this drink, but basically it is an extremely lightly carbonated, lightly flavored beverage. As a matter of fact, you could describe the flavor as clean, like water. While it isn't big on flavor, it still manages to be a refreshing drink.

     With a name like Clean Energy, you'd expect it to have a very limited amount of energy enhancing ingredients, and you'd be right. It does have something called guayusa, which is an all-natural Amazonian leaf that delivers a "clean energy boost." I don't know how much guayusa is in this beverage, but it's enough to yield 120 milligrams of caffeine.

     So now that we know why it's called Clean Energy, the question now is, does it feel like a clean energy boost? I suppose what they mean by a clean boost is that there are no jitters or edginess. If that's the case, then yes, it did it's job.

     With all the lawsuits that are happening to the big energy drink companies, a drink like this is actually a smart idea. It doesn't really make sense for companies to cram in every single chemical that ends in -ine into their drink, so Runa just went with what works: Caffeine. From guayusa of course. In a nutshell, I like the drink, and I can't wait to review the other flavor they sent me.
