Beaver Buzz's Green Melon is a melon flavored energy drink packaged in a 16 oz. can. That’s certainly a first for us, with “green melon” flavoring more or less resembling what a honeydew melon might taste like if paired with a lot of sugar, some carbonation, and energy ingredients. In all seriousness, it’s a nice change of pace from green apple or other sweet and sour fruit flavors. Plus, it’s something unique to the Beaver Buzz brand – that’s always nice in a category that’s as crowded as the energy drink sector. From an energy point of view, this product delivers 100 mg of caffeine per serving (that’s 200 per can) as well as guarana, taurine, ginseng, insoitol, and D-Glucuronolactone. Packaging, like the other flavors, now features a more angry, almost rabid looking, image of a beaver. It keeps with the slightly off kilter style of the brand, while also making it look more in line with what we’d expect from an energy drink (sporty and aggressive). Overall, very clean presentation, enjoyable flavor, and good kick make this a good entry to the revised lineup.
