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.

" Fortune favors the bold ".

Yeah..we'll see about that.

L - Poured see through piss yellow without any trace of a head

S - This one smelled like some booze. Not good booze either. More of the kinda booze that leaves an ever present headache of bastard children after a one night stand turns into an unwanted.comittment and a shotgun wedding type of booze.

T - Tases like grain alcohol had geschlechsverkher with a stalk of pesticide ridden corn.

F - Numbing at least.

O - This may rival steel reserve in terms of worst beer I've ever consumed.

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?

Where to start... uh... ok, no prelude... let's just get to it.

Look - something is off here. It pours a golden color, not unlike a macro adjunct, but it has a haze to it that just doesn't seem to be right. Remember Buffalo Bill from Silence Of The Lambs? Yeah... looks kinda like that. Upgraded from 1 to 1.25 as it does have some (fast dissipating) head that settles into a surprisingly nice little foam ring.

Smell - nothing... No, I'm serious... literally NOTHING! Had to bring my wife over and ask for verification. She said she got something, but it was very subtle. Once it warms a bit it does get somewhat of sweet grain odor, but it never REALLY develops a proper smell.

Taste - "Naturally Brewed" my a**... There ain't nothing natural about this s***... Prior to the first sip, I ran in place a bit... like when a God fearing human being sees a wasp on the patio. Fear and anxiety ensued. HOWEVER... tasting in wasn't quite as bad as confronting the evil that is the wasp (seriously... one of God's sick little jokes). While this is one step away from worshiping the Devil, it does develop some adjunct flavor as it warms. I never thought I'd appreciate grainy, corny adjunct nastiness... but it was a nice distraction from the actual flavor of this "beer."

SIDE NOTE - many have complained about the booziness of this beer... I honestly cannot taste the alcohol (even at 10.6%) over the overall yucky blah in this so-called "lager."

Feel - it's carbonated. I think.

Overall - I feel like I need a Bible, an old priest and a young priest... the fact that I drank 24 oz of this is proof that I am not living right with Jesus.

In retrospect (about 10 years since I've had one of these) they're terrible. But I suppose they're bearable when you're a broke college kid.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Grabbed it just to see how bad it was. Even as a poor college kid there is better beer i fan afford. I think Budweiser is much better. That's..... saying something... Drank a Victory Moon Glow and Firestone Walker Wookey Jack to clease the palate :D

It does exactly what you want it to do. I picked up three of these for $7 and just one of them got me to a real good place. It's not for enjoying.

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.

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.

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.
