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.

Canette 355ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez végétal de légumes bouilli et de maïs avec des notes herbeuses (gazon mouillé). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aqueuse. Léger goût de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve des traces de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) avec des notes de sucre chimique. Post-goût court, composé d’un goût résiduel de sucre chimique.

Ghastly, appalling, disgusting beer. Truly, honestly, desperately bad beer.

Common everyday beer with 0 taste. Horrible after taste. Just good for getting drunk

Terrible beer. I’m hoping once I graduate from college, I will never see this again.

This is a competitor for the lowest of the low, but it beats out Natural Light because it doesn’t give me a splitting headache after a single can the way that beer does. Also, less heavy and disgusting than miller high life. Overall, about on par with coors light, but a very different character. This is a heavy beer, strong, high alcohol content. In my opinion, this is the worst I’ve tried, however, among the "ice" beers. I strongly prefer milwaukee’s best ice (if I’m going to be drinking one, honestly they’re not something I’d usually choose on my own. That one has a stronger alcohol character to it...and in this one the alcohol is less noticeable, more masked...but it’s masked by a nasty, sour taste that is, in my opinion, worse than the alcohol. I do not recommend this one.
