It’s like taking a stroll down memory lane!!! I used to drink a lot of this. I remember on more than one occassion drinking this while tailgating at Razorback football games! I remember strolling around talking with folks and thinking that I was hot stuff carrying one of these in my hand.

Anyhow, pours darker than your average beer but still within that straw color range. Has a nice thick head that goes away within a few seconds....Aroma, doesn’t really have one. It’s sweet smelling, but that’s about all I can say about it.

Taste again sweet, there’s not a lot to mention because there’s really nothing that stands out.

Mouthfeel. it’s perhaps fuller than most beers. But the taste is very very smooth, and that’s probably the best feature of this beer.

Overall, I rate it higher than most but the sentimental value of this beer is high. Haven’t had one in a while, but I’m glad I did. Go Hogs!!

This stuff is probably made out of bourbon barrel aged puke. This beer is awful.

Clear yellow colour with a small white head. Malt, corn and grass in the aroma. Watery body and taste. Overall, do they call this a beer?

Pour is the color of paradise we know as the Jersey Shore. Has the fizzle and smell of Valentine’’s Day in a Myrtle Beach trailer park. Taste is unknown, almost like the X-men’s origins. Like an afternoon toodle through a field of daisies.

"mmmmm...a slightly drier version of the pee water we know as the "king" of beers. why all the different variations. college students drink this swill to get drunk. smells, looks, and tastes like urine."

Bud Ice is a beer use to drink on occasion years ago. But since then it has fallen way down on my list of "go to" beers. Aroma-non-deScript, generic adjunct lager smell. Appearance- a yellowish color with carbonation and little head noticed. Taste- I find this less enjoyable than the standard bearer Budweiser, not horrible but this beer has a bland and almost unrecognizable flavor. Palate- i really noticed the carbonation. Overall- this beer isn’t horrible nor is it a great beer, it is simply a beer that I will drink if someone offers it to me, If it was on a menu with a half a dozen other beers I would almost certainly choose something else over this.

Absolutely irrelevant brew. Thankfully this one never hit Europe, as regular Budwesier did. I would be embarrassed as an American to allow others to taste this one.

Transfer from BA review on 12-25-12- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance- Pours a light straw color with a one finger fizzy white head. The head fades very fast to leave very little lacing. Smell – The aroma is a mix of corn, some breadiness and some cardboard aromas. Taste –The taste actually follows the nose quite well. It starts out with a very light sweet corn flavor and some malt. The flavor sweetens out more toward the middle to the end all the while a cardboard taste gets more potent. In the end a rather bland papery and bready flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is average to below average in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. A crisper feel appropriate for the style, but nothing too exceptional. Overall – Ah nothing you really want to go to even for a cheap session.

Typical ’ice’ lager, a marketing trend dating back some years which has lead to some of the most boring lagers in the world. Thinnish but stable, dense, yellowish white head, colour a pale straw yellow with a peachy hue, cristal clear. Grainy nose with some faint pale malts, corn, vanilla, white bread, bubblegum, almost no hops noticeable. Taste neutral, light grainy sweetishness, smooth and thin mouthfeel, sourish note, quickly fading away and with no hop bitterness worth mentioning. Very bland and dull, as expected...

Yep, about what I was expecting. pale color taste of low malts, corn, rice. fizzy head. d, no bitterness and a slight alcohol kick at the end. bought at a gas station with the remainder of my gift card.
