COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Busch Ice has a rich, smooth taste with exceptional drinkability and a slightly sweet finish. Busch Ice undergoes Anheuser-Buschís 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.

We dubbed this "The Fancy", if only becuase we had five dollars and 7 mouths to buy beer for. It is terrible, terrible beer. Itís sort of like a pitcher filled with one Busch light, 6 cups of water, and whatever they use to flavor banana Runts. If youíre going to drink an Ice beer (which you probably shouldnít), donít let it be this one.

For those who "donít 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. Itís so much better than Natural Ice (but then again, anything is). For the price you pay, you canít really go wrong with Busch Ice.

Sampled from a 16 ounce can, it doesnít have an body what so ever and its taste is seriously lacking, it does have a good abv and is quite cheap, so you decide. ......rerate...i guess....i really thought i hadnít had this before but that shows ya, the mind starts to wonder after 500+ beers....nice smell really,doesnít smell cheap at all....good good lacing to ,wow, looks and smells the part so far...and the taste is of corn flakes, i have underestimated this beer,...hey its still in the lower ranks of pale lagers but this one isnít that digusting so....(scores changed accordingly)

Even long before I was old enough to drink, I used to shudder at the thought of this beer. Tastes like it was fermented next to a heater in a prison. Actually, that would explain a lot about ABís beers. This beer really sucks, even more than ABís other fine offerings. Taste is of corn and rice, and the flavor is of cotton candy mixed with terpentine. Donít drink this. If you have children in college, call them and tell them not to drink this. Yuk.

Uhg, outa 24 oz can. Poured out like week old dish water with a faint aroma of bum piss. Sorry, once again the American mega brewers embarrass me again with this poor excuse that they branded as beer. The taste is of tin and aluminum with a slight flavor of salt. About the most fun or enjoyment I get outa this crap is letting my dog Sammy Girl drink the rest of the can and watch her get buzzed. Poor Sammy.

24oz can. Looks like piss. Smells like metal and fusels, perhaps some rotten malt or hops. Taste is amazingly awful. Normally I pour something this bad on my plants, but I donít want to kill them, and this might do it.

does "ice" mean "watered down"? because this beer doesnít taste like anything more than dirty water...

Not really that good but something that is super cheap and good for quenching your thirst on a hot summer day.
