COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Busch Ice has a rich, smooth taste with exceptional drinkability and a slightly sweet finish. Busch Ice undergoes Anheuser-Busch’s exclusive ice-brewing process, which takes the beer to a temperature below freezing. This leads to the formation of ice crystals in the finishing process, which help create its rich, smooth taste. Ice beer is rumored to have been developed by accident in Germany during Oktoberfest celebrations. A particularly cold year froze the celebrated bock beers, which are traditionally brewed for spring, and a new taste was noticed by the drinkers.

10/5/07 From 24oz can. Aroma is sweet, crisp and corny as hell. Appearance is very yellow with a low white head. Flavor is simple and artificial with rice, corn and some kind of slightly earthy hop extract. This is weird and carbonic and I presume left me slightly sterile. Mouthfeel is light bodied, watery, spritzy, with a high carb texture. Overall, this is drinkable, but has such low character, I really wish it was a 12oz can so I could finish it twice as fast. It’s like watching masterpiece theater reruns with a bottle of wild turkey in your lap; bland and white trash all at the same time.

Imagine the flavorless busch light. Now take that, and throw in more alcohol. That’s all you are getting with this beer. Buy this or any other ’ice’ beer for similar tastes and similar effects - get drunk quicker for less money.

Another supercan purchase to sip while strolling the Vegas Strip, another supercan discard after about 10 sips. "Bland" is being complimentary of this featureless macro,

Typical male, dorm beer pong material. Tastes little better than battery acid, but hell, you’ll be rowdy and raucus in no time. SUPER CHEAP

Can. This beer is best used for those times that you’ve run out of cash for crack, and need a good buzz. Otherwise, avoid this beer at all costs. Complete and total crap. Living in Jacksonville FL (home of an A-B brewery) I get to see every mistake A-B makes. This is one of them. Thanks for nothing guys.
