Camo Silver Ice has an extremely thin, white head, a clear, golden, somewhat bubbly appearance, but the overall look is not so clean. The aroma is very offensive and is picked up right when the can is cracked open. It is a sickly-sweet, pungent, strong, odor of wet grain husk and rotted candy. The flavor is equally repellent, with grain husk, unusual sweetness, with strong and cheap alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, with a dastardly chalky under-taste. Camo Silver Ice finishes semi-wet, boozy, and stomach turning. I poured it out.

This is number 2 of 3 Camo's that were a "gift" from my brother! This stuff gives new meaning to the term "gag" gift!

Comes in a tall 24 oz. silver can with "stencil" style lettering. I poured the contents into a liter mug. Color was a pale yellow that would do any macro brew proud. The coarse white head was huge and left a lot of sticky lace on the glass. Smell was corny with the added aroma of alcohol. Taste was cloying sweetness, corn, and alcohol burn. The taste had a harshness that the regular Camo lacked. In fact, I only finished half of this before the other half hit the kitchen sink! Absolutely the worst beer I've ever tasted!

I saw this at a house party and gave it a try. My mistake. A pale straw color with a white head that is soon gone. Aromas on bitter yeast and moldy dirt. The flavor profile is no better. Possibly similar to EA-85 gas. Body is light and watery. Over carbonated. Stay away if you can.

Clear pale in color with a moderate head that quickly disappears. Aromas of vegetables, fish, light grains and DMS. Flavor is fairly clean and it tastes like corn. Hints of paint thinner and gasoline as well. Gruesome. Beware. Must malt liquor reviews require 250 characters?

Camo Silver “ICE” High Gravity Lager pours a pale amber from a 24oz aluminum pop top can. Head goes to about two fingers before dissipating to a full covering carpet of fine foam bubbles. Lovely lace forms as sips of fluid are cautiously taken.

Nose is an up front and in your face sweet corn with strong updrafts of alcohol vapor. Palate is cloyingly sweet corn adjunct and some bitter hops, but not nearly bitter enough to balance out the sweet adjunct. The bite of carbonation comes too late to do more to the palate than just fizz.

I’ve had fairly good high gravity lagers before... Camo Silver “ICE” High Gravity Lager is not one of them.

What the heck, why not try another cheapo. Should have known this one would be that bad. Sure, it was only $2.50, but that doesn't matter. It pours a lifeless medium yelow with a white, fizzy, quickly diminishing head. Smells of musty, straw-like, weak grains and a little harsh alcohol. Tastes the same, except with a more pronounced harsh alcohol burn. It has a light body, oily texture and moderate carbonation. No reason to drink this stuff unless your looking for a cheap buzz, which is what I'm sure this swill was created for.

pours out of the 40 oz. bottle a deep golden colour with a lots of fast rising bubbles to feed a furious and frothy head. strong corn syrup aroma...alcohol and some perceptible hop notes. upon tasting...whoa nelly is this some potent stuff...syrupy sweet and full of alcohol. it does not taste good. it's strangely smooth, though...the mouthfeel is really odd...hollow and empty somehow...lifeless and without a soul. and at 9% ABV....if you dare to polish off a 40 of this...you might also become lifeless and missing your soul.

this stuff is awful...this is one of the worst beers i have ever consumed. only the brave or very insanely curious should attempt to drink.

CANtastic! Another new beer in a CAN, albeit high gravity lager.

It began with a finger of bone-white head but experienced such low retention that it became wisps even before I finished pouring. Color was a lemon-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose was fusel, really bitingly so. Phew! Mouthfeel was medium with a hot alcohol burn on the tongue obscuring any flavor. A second swallow evinced a sweet-tartness, like a candy, but not a good one. Finish left me breathless, but not in a good way. Oof.

Thanks to my good buddy Jesse13713 for splitting his only can of this with me; I owe you man.

A: Pours a hazy piss-yellow with, actually four or so fingers of white head (it may have been a dramatic pour). No retention or lacing, this fades like soda.

S: Aroma is of stale must, wholly unpleasant. Not even any corn sweetness to be found.

T: Corn sweetness definitely comes through here, sugar and corn is all I can taste. Well, that and the alcohol. Metallic, bitter finish.

M: Thin, watery body with light carbonation which fades so quickly it can't even hide this beer's taste.

O: Well, it does go down easily thanks to its watery qualities. But as far as taste, think I'll be holding off on my next drink of this for quite a while.

Camo Silver Ice is one cheap brew. with an abv of 10.6 per 12 oz. The taste is just pain awful. I got the whole 24 oz can down. I will not get this brew again. Even if it is cheap. Rot gut and death in a can. The color is a dark Amber/Yellow color. Smell of alcohol and cheap brew.

Bottled by "Camo Brewing Co, Lacrosse, WI" and inkjetted "0239". Hope this isn't years old, doubt it will matter that much though.

Clear glass 40 out of a random dingy cooler. Poured into a large mug, it forms a pretty good sized head and has some rings of lacing that coat the glass. Rapid rising carbonation in sparse streams, urine gold shade. Head lasts for the first couple sips, and eventually breaks apart.

Skunky aroma of the euro pils variety, something vaguely floral suggesting hops. Clear glass will do that… light sweet grain and some musty oxidized notes.

Harsh astringency, tacky and mealy aftertaste. Sticky sweet grain flavor, envelope glue, wet manila folders. Blehhh. Weak and unpleasant in the taste and mouthfeel departments. The astringency is the real dealbreaker here though. Turrible. Run far far away.

Drinking something this godawful really makes one appreciate the good stuff even more.

Cheap and strong, strong and cheap. I drank it straight from it's 24 oz. silver can. Smell skunky and corny. Taste is so offensive it was a chore to take a sip. About halfway through the second can I couldn't taste it, because of it's 9.0% ABV. Not a quality product, unless you are looking for a cheap buzz.

Appearance: Straw color golden tone with a large bubbled white head leaves thin spread lacing. Aroma: Smells of cooked veggies namingly corn and rice sugary sweetness some actual fruity notes in there as well possibly pear, kinda weird. Taste: Consists of sugary corn/rice adjuncts slightly syrupy with a pretty harsh mix of flavors alcohol evident at 9%, wow this stuff is not something one should drink on the regular. When a pour college student needs to get mildly lubricated on limited money supply, there's really no better time to sample cheap ass malt liquors. Mouthfeel: Somewhat syrupy light to medium bodied artificial carbonation. Drinkability: Not something I will be drinking regularly interesting experience.

Ultra pale yellow, very translucent, minimal animation, foamy bright white head, fair retention, a speck of lace. Strong fusel alcohol and sweet adjunct nose, not inviting at all. I reluctantly took a sip… yuck, burning alcohol, raw, sweet adjunct riddled. There is something oddly empty about it, very hollow. It is very harsh on the back of the throat. The mouthfeel is very thin, minimal carbonation aids this phenomenon. My palate is too sophisticated for this evil Lager. This is only for idiotic people who seek to quickly get loaded… cheaply. My advice for BAs: Skip it.

I could not finish half of the 24 oz. can; at a $1.19 it was way overpriced.

I don't find this to be the worst malt liquor out there, since it is actually drinkable, but it's fairly close.

This is gold, rather fizzy, with a medium, bubbly, airy white head that soon dissipates to a few clear, ugly bubbles.

The aroma is musty, cheap, sweet white wine.

The taste is also basically a cheap, musty, sweet white wine with a faint hint of grain in the finish. The alcohol is quite noticeable in the taste but the palate is rather watery, lacking the smooth fullness of something like Steel Reserve.

pours a deep gold, with a two finger head that remains for about 30 seconds. Strong malt aroma. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth for a high gravity lager. However, the taste puts this beer where it belongs, on the bottom shelf. This is a beer best served cold, when you can't scrape together enough change for a 40 oz. but want to get drunk.

Got from Scoobydank as an extra ugly in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly BIF - thanks? Poured from a 16oz can into a shaker pint. This one didn't deserve one of my good pints so shaker it is. Was a clear light yellow color with some carb. No lacing. It had a small fizzy white head that quickly dissipated into nothing.

The aroma was not good. Sweet malt with I swear an overtone of wine cooler. Very sweet. The taste was just as sweet and just as bad. Wasn't gonna drink all this one anyway but it would have been too sweet to drink it all.

Overall, a really terrible beer and I feel sorry for people who think this is good beer. You are entitled to drink what you want but when I think of what they are missing in good beer it's a shame. This gives real beer a bad name.

Pours light gold color, with a fizzy 1 finger head that dissipated quickly. smelled sweet and like alcohol. tastes like a big fat mcnasty, it tasted like they mixed a cheap beer with cheap tequila. Alcohol was overwhelming. This one did taste better straight from the can however, which still isnt saying much. AVOID, unless you want a cheap buzz. But still if thats what your looking for your better of drinking liquor anyway.

As it goes for the silver ice, original, and genuine ale the Camo Silver Ice would definately be the least vile. The fact that it is ice brewed and slightly more drinkable make it Camo of choice if it Camo is the only choice. It has a sub average appearance, slightly dark with a frothy head. Smell isn't anything special. The taste is that same old horrible sickly sweet taste only not as strong. The mouthfeel is kinda watery. The reduced taste, high alcohol, and ice brewyness increase drinkabilty. Alcohol hits you hard than the original, which is good because of the shitty taste. It is not like I am gonna come back to this unless I have to (maybe this weekend because I am paying off a speeding ticket) ,but for two bucks I was falling all over the place on the way to bed.
