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.

This is a competitor for the lowest of the low, but it beats out Natural Light because it doesnít 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 Iíve tried, however, among the "ice" beers. I strongly prefer milwaukeeís best ice (if Iím going to be drinking one, honestly theyíre not something Iíd 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 itís masked by a nasty, sour taste that is, in my opinion, worse than the alcohol. I do not recommend this one.

Get it in the camo packs. Canned. Busch with the maybe a little more booze and "ice filtering." Whatever that means. Again only worth a broke drunkerds time.

Health piss. Medium white head. Aroma: Malt, chemicals. Flavor: Corn, toilet bowl cleaner. Finish: Something DuPont would spill in the river. Ice Beers are brewed for a cheap drunk. Bums: Molson Ice, Ice House, Bud Ice or any Malt Liquor is better. Still, it beats Natty Ice but that isnít saying much.

College beer and nothing more. Or as we called it at 33 Clayton "Blackout juice."

Well, it has a relatively high alcohol content, and thatís the only upside. A horrid mess of metal and slight hay and cereal.

Can. You know this wasnít as bad as I would have originally thought. It pours a rather deep, sickly urine color with a rather dense white head that has very little retention and no lacing. Aroma is big corn, esters, formaldihyde, some vegetal notes. Big seltzer mouthfeel with a slightly creamy body. Taste is pretty much typical macro lager but has a bit more depth. At 6.7%, itís not quite a malt liquor or full ice beer, which is probably why it is overall inoffensive. Not bad. I was terrified to try it but now Iím a firm believer.

Ugh...Iíve gone on a cheap beer kick and this is awful. Barely any aroma. What was there was mostly metal. Pour was a medium gold with not many bubbles and no head. Taste was nasty. Lightly carbonated corn water with no aftertaste. Near syrupy which isnít good for a pale lager. Blah. No wonder the 8 pack was only 7 dollars. Less than a dollar a beer is natureís warning side.
