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.

I knew I had to try this when I was walking down the street in Georgetown and I saw a huge woman wearing an OE Ice advertising shirt that said, in huge letters on the back, íThis one goes out to all my homies and all the dead niggaz.í The company actually put out that shirt!!! Rokkin! Tasty too.

The best malt liquer you can get. Its good stuff for the price they sell it for. Colt 45 is still my number 1 malt liquer though

This is the only malt liquor I can finish out of the three Iíve tried. Colt 45 makes me almost puke, and MAX Bull is crap. This one seems to be decent and it goes good with a pack of colts and some hooches.
