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.

Very little hop aroma. Mostly a metallic, industrial aroma. Pale golden yellow. Huge head at first pour leaves immediately. Medium-light body with heavy carbonation. Very weak in flavor. A little sweet but mostly some weird industrial adjunct flavor. You get what you pay for in this beer.

Well...um...you get drunk faster using this than the normal Busch, so if you buy a case, you only really taste the first 7 or so.

This beer is no different than any of its counterparts. It sucks. It is watered down and is only good if you want to get drunk.

It’s the beer of choice for poor college students.

Beer ratings here based on my only trip to Pittsburgh. Only beer bought at PNC park this year. Trip was great, so beer was too. :) Go Bucs...

Some people say beer is beer. Not me. If you like beer at all, dont drink this rank garbage. Regular busch isnt bad, but this givs it a bad name.

A bit more of an alcohol kick at 5.9% but that’s about the only redeeming factor you’ll find here. Otherwise, no different from the rest of the mass produced American Standard swill.
