Tall can ($1.79) from Vegas. This is a putrid beer. I almost dry heaved when I took a whiff. Pretty brutal stuff. Super sweet corn flavors with a fair amount of rubbing alcohol added for character. One of the worst brew Iíve ever had. The bums donít even stoop so low as to drink this stuff.

A 24 oz can with no freshness or made on date. The beer poured a golden yellow with no head to talk about. A smell of peaches and a overpowering sweetness. The taste is a wired slight malt candied flavor. A very carbonated poor laced malt beer. Not bad though for what it was made for.

Personally I love this shit, my first experience I was expecting the worst, I cracked it open and the aroma was pleasant, and the taste was definately way better than I had expected. For the price and the APV this is by far my favorite warm up drink, throw a couple of these bad boys down before hitting the bars and you are set for the night!

light orange yellow body with a lacing white heade.smells like a fruit cup. orange lemon zest, pineapple and mango.aloe vera & pumpkin, grape & alcohol flavor hit me first. reminds me of some so called "tripels" iíve had. too fruity for me and gets a bit cloying, overly sweet, but for some reason i canít say i donít like it. i will buy this again and use it as a finisher.

Purchased for the alcohol%. Pours straw yellow with faint white head. Sickly sweet aroma. Flavor is very similar to that taste you get after just vomiting.

garrison (773) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2006
From a twenty-four ounce can - This brew pours a straw yellow brew with a thin white head and a sickeningly sweet almond-like aroma. Tastewise... well, I guess that means that I have to take a sip... YARRGH!!! It burns, IT BURNS!!! Wino-blasting for sure, but itís crap!

Aroma walks the line between malt liquors &some beligans. The expected chemical aroma is lighter than usual. some natural esthers, slightly prunish. typical yellow color, quckly gone thin white head. dare I say the flavor better than expected, minimal nasty over-sweet, soemthing kinda fruity, aplle-ish, vanilla.

Looks like pee, smells okay. The head is okay but the alcohol is there. Actually, though, for a beer labeled an ice and a malt liqour, this is pretty good. You canít taste the high alcohol that much and the flavor is better than most other beers of this style and most lagers.

frankenkitty, Whereís the Camo Silver Ice High Gravity Lager?!?!?

No matter. Lured to that mecca of beer stores, Bridgeview Liquors, by his rating (and thereby, deliberate enticement) of the aforementioned malt liquor, I found no trace of said malt liquor, yet found this gem. And at an abv of 10.5%, it is obviously a superior drink to his meager 9% brew. Why, even the color of my Ice, Black, is way cooler than his pansy Silver Ice!

I wouldíve guessed this to be an European strong lager.

It pours a deep golden body, highly effervescent, with a frothy white head that actually hangs around for most of the drink. The aroma is full of alcohol, corn, plastics, industrial chemicals, and a trace of sweet malt. No hops. Not in the flavor, either. Just some alcohol charged corn syrup, diesel fuel, malt, and that dose of metallica that one comes to appreciate in a fine malt liquor. The alcohol lines the mouth (perhaps thanks to strange, condemned chemicals) and leaves a burning fuel finish.

Now, one might think that, given the above description, Iíve rated this too high. But itís on target for the style. And, considering the sturdy abv and the fact that this is no craft brewery wannabe, this may be the Mother of Malt Liquors.... although Iím sure that some of you have found "better."
