Bud Iceís slightly higher alcohol content is much more immediatey apparent by its aroma and flavor than the other "Ice" beers, and is vastly inferior to Icehouse. This is sweeter than most lagers (kind of reminds me of the sugar alcohol used in zero calorie chewing gum), and actually offers a decent middle of the road mouth-feel that is pleasingly full but not too heavy. Itís alright every once-in-awhile, I reckon, but not great, and not the best in its field. Give this one at least one shot; some folks really seem to like it, but you probably wonít.

25oz can. Pours golden clear with an off white head. Aroma is of alcohol, corn, and straw. Smells absolutely terrible. Taste is of alcohol, straw, and dusty malt. Doesnít taste as bad as it smells, but itís pretty bad. Not overly hard to put down, but just very unpleasant. Not the worst thing ever, but very close.

Found in a 1L can or something in Las Vegas. People literally wander up and down the strip drinking these monsters. It has that bleached white head and industrial yellow body that all Bud products seem to have. Flavour is a mix of urine and lemon. Of course itís bad - and why suck down on these when you can have a vodka cooler? Iíll never understand Americans.

I pretty much chugged a 32 ounce of this bad boy last night, straight from da bottle. A nice golden coloring with seafoam bubbles occasionally, the appearance is nice. No harshness to this, very smooth and drinkable. Little taste, but thatís ok. No skunk factor and no complexity makes it satisfying and smooth. I also drank it warm - I was amazing just how little harshness there was to this very cheap, bottom of the barrel beer. I liked it! Honestly itís way better than normal Bud. Iíll buy it again.

Itís 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, doesnít really have one. Itís sweet smelling, but thatís about all I can say about it.

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

Mouthfeel. itís perhaps fuller than most beers. But the taste is very very smooth, and thatís probably the best feature of this beer.



Overall, I rate it higher than most but the sentimental value of this beer is high. Havenít had one in a while, but Iím 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 Valentineíís Day in a Myrtle Beach trailer park. Taste is unknown, almost like the X-menís 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 isnít 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.
