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.

Sampled from a 16 ounce can, it doesn’t 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 hadn’t had this before but that shows ya, the mind starts to wonder after 500+ beers....nice smell really,doesn’t 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 isn’t 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 AB’s beers. This beer really sucks, even more than AB’s other fine offerings. Taste is of corn and rice, and the flavor is of cotton candy mixed with terpentine. Don’t 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 don’t want to kill them, and this might do it.

TheStPauliGirl (9) - USA - OCT 13, 2006 does not count
does "ice" mean "watered down"? because this beer doesn’t 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.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - AUG 8, 2006
Another loser from Anheuser. 12 oz. can. Pours out a little darker than water, but not much more than that. Thin white head leaves quickly. Typical aromas, a little rice, not much else. No hops aromas, but I wasn’t expecting any. Practically flavorless. Decent enough for hot summer weather, but not much else.

everything said of busch goes doubly so for busch ice. Its not so bad if you dont consider it beer. Its just water with alcohol in it and a mild skunk aftertaste.
