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.

Overall Impression: Higher alcohol terribleness that really there is almost no reason to ever drink.

Headache in a can. Natural Ice clone. Do not drink. You do not need to get drunk this badly.

High in alcohol, so hopefully you can get drunk enough to not realize how offensive the flavor it is. Yellow color, watery with a bitter, awful taste. Absolute pee.

The only saving grace for the ice beers is that the alcohol content is high, to facilitate effective funneling.

Sampled during Swig-a-Swill Guzzler in St Paul, MN. Good grief! I could not tell the difference between this Bud Ice. It has to be the same beer with a different package label.

Tastes just like regular Busch, but nose has a faint hint of lime or something citrus. Basically not a good beer.

The only reason I am rating this overall as an 5 is the price. One word...COLLEGE!

Tried it at a friends. This is supposed to be different from Busch? I hated Busch and I hate this. I rarely trash a beer but this is the worst excuse for a beer I ever had. If you like drinking razor blades then this is the beer for you. Exact same review as I gave Busch. Not much aroma, bitter taste, pale yellow, fizzy, head ok but disappeared fast and no lacing. Very light body, did not enjoy this beer at all. Would never buy again.

I don’t think there is a terrible amount of difference in flavor between this and regular Busch. This has a bit more alcohol, with that faint fruit skin and artifical malt liquor finish. Garbage.
