2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smooth, malty... but not overly sweet with the typical dog breath finish I find with most ML’s. it kept its carbonation, and went down easy... not a bad malt liquor. I decided to try it at the lake catfishing. The only thing I caught was a buzz.

Compared to Steel Reserve itís alot smoother. Not as sweet as Camo Lager. Still a good malt liqour and at .99 a double duece thatís a sweet deal.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rich amber color with a thick creamy lacy head. This is hands down the most attractive malt liquor Iíve ever seen. So long as nobody sees the forty you poured it from, it could easily pass for Newcastle or something like that. Dosenít smell that bad either: it has a hoppy bready slightly metallic smell that is similar to some expensive imported lagers. Notwithstanding the beautiful appearance and decent smell, this tastes like a typical forty: sweet, sewer gas-creamed corn taste. There is also a very strong ethanol taste and a sweet slightly cloying finish. Overall, this product adheres well to the guidelines for a good forty with the added bonus that it is a joy to look at. This stuff does the 8-Ball proud.

Why is my over all impression much righer than my other ratings?
Itís all about context. Compared to your average high-quality beer, Ice 800 is horrible. Quite simply, imagine the worst beer youíve ever had...now imagine pouring 2 shots of the cheapest vodka you can find into the glass. That is Ice 800.
Ice 800 is honest. Itís not about flavor. Itís not about image. Itís not about quality. Itís about getting you hammered.
Thatís what it wants to do and thatís what it does. $3 for a six-pack of tall boys...and it has twice as much alcohol than an 12-pack of most other beers. It serves itís purpose and, for that, I give it respect.

Death in a bottle. Great to drink after you get fired or break up with your girlfriend. For world-class level 40-drinkers ONLY. Not kid stuff.
