Pale gold pour. Corny ash nose. More taste than regular bud or BL. I canít say its bad because thereís nothing bad there. Its just bland beer. Inoffensive and easy drinking. Near flavorless with a little corn. Very smooth. Slightly dry, oily finish.

All these years and I hadnít rated this! A 24oz can here, served ICE COLD. Nose sickly sweet and corn-inflected, pours clear golden with a short and fizzy white head. A little fizzy carbonation, mild stale grain that reminds of damp laundry forgotten in the machine overnight, husky with corn but not too sweet -- more like semi-dry. Light-medium body. Has that unique quality where you know a few pints would leave you with a headache in the morning, but without surface aggression. As far as BMC, one of the least painful alcohol-delivery mechanisms.

This beer is for the cheap and easy crowd. Not much on character, just makes for quick drinking and fills you up quick.

After reviewing the Natural Ice from A-B, decided to see the differences with this one. Came in a 12-pack in the States, of clear bottles. Pours the same light golden colour, with a white frothy head, average retention and dirty lace. Pretty much just smells like corn. The mouthfeel gave me some sticky teeth, but overall refreshing when real cold. The taste is pretty mild with the corn again. Nothing too chemical here. Kind of reminds me a stronger Corona (with the clear bottle). Less offensive than the Natural Ice, so better and not bad for the price when had cold.

Bud Ice looks, smells and taste like beer .As rule I drink J.D. straight but right now it is 90 some degrees. The word ice got my attention. God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

This is a stronger version of budweiser (regular bud). A couple extra points for alc %

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2013 This actually isnít as bad as people would like to say it is. Yes its pale, yes its grainy, yes its watery & no there arenít any hops but it was never intended to be a craft beer. Its a slightly harsh but smooth macro lager that goes down easy & gives you a buzz. The old bottles with the jagged edges were the coolest thing about this beer.

Well this is one terrible tasting beer. Very astringent with almost no hop presence.

Bought at a nondiscript Wegmans in Syracuse enjoyed with Sushi and some game 7 NHL playoff goodness. Who gives a fuck what this looks like? Drank right out of the road soda sized 24 oz can. Ohh such a nice big blue can. Nose of corn, corn, metal, more corn. Taste has some mild bitterness quickly over ran by corn sweetness and metallic. Body is watery This reminds me of college for some reason. Fuck the PenguinsKingsBruinsLeafsSenatorsRedwingsSharksBlac
