Camo is the strongest, cheapest swill I have ever had. At 8.5% ABV it serves one purpose, getting you shitfaced for small price. The 24 oz. cans are always trouble, but in it's 40 oz. incarnation it's bearable when served ice cold, but you better get it down before it warms up or you'll be making love to the porcelain god all night long. If you have $3 bucks and REALLY wanna get wasted, this stuff is second to none, but otherwise steer clear of this crap at all costs.

oh snaps. the camo tall boy. no one poors this out come on. but the can is camo colored! so it makes up for the fact that this beer looks like typical crapola. the smells is of alcohol, nasty grains and maybe paint thinner i dont know, but it isnt pleasant. the taste? well if served ice cold, the goal is to swallow as much of the devil fluid as possible because once you stop and breath your senses will wake up to how truly fould this stuff is.the mouthfeel is thin and mineralish and finishing the tall boy can be a little challenging, especially if it has started to warm, but you can do it cow poke. this is also one of those beers that gives you the nasty shitty drunk, so be forewarned. but hey for 99 cents a tall boy, what did you expect....have fun...

Fizzy pale yellow beer. Large head. Aroma is a cross between wet cardboard and three day old garbage. It';s sweet, full of corn and watery, medicinal tasting and 8.6% alcohol, and on the bad side its only 8.6 % alcohol. This is by far the worst beer I've ever rated. I can't drink any more so the rest of this rating is from memory. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is medicinal. Aftertaste is alcohol and sweet. Turned on the tap and garbage disposal when I poured the rest of this crap down the drain...

24oz.Can. This beer poured a medium creamy/soapy white head with fine-small sized bubbles that quickly diminished.The body was clear and carbonated. The hue of this beer was golden and there was no lacing.The nose was that of alcohol and it had a very weird flavor to it.This beer had a burning sensation as it was swallowed, it was bitey, it had an aftertaste that lingered and it was just plain unpleasing to my palate.

Ok, I thought I would get this, because it looked cheesey. I mean, come on, a camoflage can? Well, I was expecting something rather bland and without distinction. Sure, it's no Weste 12, but it's got it's perks. The color was a reddish/straw color. Had no head whatsoever after a few minutes. Sure the head started out big and fluffy, but fell back quicker than the Iraqi army. But seriously folks, this wasn't a bad brew as far as Malts go. It's got a kind of flat citrusy taste to it mixed with alcohol. The alcohol is strong at 8.5%. Lemme tell you, it ain't masked either. The alcohol is out there and showin' everything it's got!

Notes: 24oz Camo can. looks and tastes horrible. This stuff pours out a crazy yellow/amber colour with almost no head. It smells of pure alcohol, adjuncts, and fruit. It tastes like alcohol and fruit. Horrible stuff, but it will get you messed up fast...but why would you want to get messed up drinking this stuff? The mouthfeel is very thin and the drinkability is non-existant.
My advise: stay away from this stuff!
Cheers!,
F.

Goldish-amber hue, brilliantly white head, soapy retention. Gasoline nose, grainy, sweet… basically disgusting. Repulsively sweet, totally undrinkable. Alcohol is completely unpleasant. Harsh. Warms the belly immediately, sedates the brain equally as fast. Not fit for human consumption.

I wasted $1.59 for this 40 ounce, which I struggled to finish a glass of, I guess not every beer is worth reviewing.

I remember this stuff, we used to use it to embalm dead cats, right before we dissected them in biology class.

Camo, a “High Gravity Lager” beer, comes in a green camouflage decorated 24oz can. Camo HGL pours an amber colour with hardly any carbonation to speak of. The 8.5% alcohol by volume is the only thing of interest with this substitute for formaldehyde. Unpleasantly sticky and with some saccharide sweetness, Camo HGL pours just about dead flat.

Maybe the can makers thought that if we can sell the brewers on the idea of a camouflaged can, then nobody will see the stuff on the shelf and we will all be safe from this beer.

I picked up three of the 24oz cans, and within a few hours I was back in the form of a can of camo. I had been possessed by the Camo HGL, and found my self buying a case of twelve 24oz cans, that I still regret to this day. Drink with restraint or in restraints, your choice, but preferably the latter, everyone will be a lot safer.

high octane, high probability that you could breath fire with this stuff. sweet and full of alcohol. only sensation i can detect is of burning alcohol in my belly. and a numbing of my brain. i suppose this beer serves a purpose....a fast and quick buzz for cheap. use with caution!
