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.

Ugh. Yet another "college" beer I had to endure while playing "beer pong." I had a hard time trying to gulp this. To the bins!

Pours a golden yellow color with aroma of corn and some hops. Flavor is more or less water with some hops present.

Corno-alcoho-water! Best describes the stench of this amalgamation of maze and other atrocities. Appearance is a pale urine like yellow that glistens like a freshly filled toilet bowl. Head? Very little. That disappears faster than asking my wife to give me a Cleveland Steamer. Light and crisp mouth-feel combined with the gurgle in my stomach is always promising. Perhaps a BM will be in order after completing the fine alcoholic beverage from Anheuser. Palate is as lifeless as the surface of the moon. Itís not as exquisite as a Black Label 11-11 or a Josef Hoffbauer Light per se, but the awful-atude is palpable. Something to pick up for your lady when you want a divorce.

Pours a light golden yellow. Aromas of minor hops, corn, grains. Flavor is light, crisp, watery with a little hop and not much else.

Pass on this one. If offered to you, donít drink it. Youíll get a stomach ache and a swirling migraine. And thatís after one. Sucks. Pour it in a cold, clean glass right in the middle, the big-assed, white, sour-corn head is crazy, like 90% of a glass.

Busch Ice taste like a sweet water down Busch, if your want to go with an Anheuser Ice go with Bud Ice. Itís the better beer of the two. It just tastes acidic. and Bailz is right it looks like pee.

Urine color with big white head. It goes all downhill from there. Little aroma of note. Tastes acidic. Stay away like the plague.
