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.

beats busch light, but by a hair. watery taste, skunky aroma, great for beer pong or college drinking games, not much else.

Much better than it’s Light sister, but only because it doesn’t leave your mouth feeling like you need to pressure wash it. Also, the higher alcohol content helps the wallet on those looking for a high buzz-per-dollar ratio

Why are beers like this even made? Tastes like gutter swill ice. Looks like corn water and tastes harldy like beer. Don’t buy.

Hmmm. Right from the can .WOW they took regular busch and left it in the freezer for a few days. Wow what a really refreshing piece of crap beer this is. Bland, thin , lack luster, unimaginative garbage.

i could not believe my eyes once i saw this fine dirty thirty sitting in the woodmans ice cooler. i thought busch ice was a myth, but i was wrong, it is real and it has alcohol in it, and thats about all i can say about it.

We dubbed this "The Fancy", if only becuase we had five dollars and 7 mouths to buy beer for. It is terrible, terrible beer. It’s sort of like a pitcher filled with one Busch light, 6 cups of water, and whatever they use to flavor banana Runts. If you’re going to drink an Ice beer (which you probably shouldn’t), don’t let it be this one.

For those who "don’t get" this s tyle of beer: It is about people who are not interested in beer (as we are, anyway) and want to get a buzz or maybe get really drunk. Alcohol can be fun, and if you want to drink to get drunk, rather than drink to enjoy some really tasty concoctions, Busch Ice is a reasonable choice. It has more alcohol per can than other commen or cheap domestic beers, and it is easy for non-hop heads to drink (i.e. not very bitter, or flavorful at all). It serves a purpose.

This is my favorite ice beer. It’s so much better than Natural Ice (but then again, anything is). For the price you pay, you can’t really go wrong with Busch Ice.
