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 Jolly Rancher centric ice beer. Itís kind of sharp w/ fruity stressed yeast notes on the nose. Itís sweet and thick w/ lots of oxidized cardboardy elements. I guess you can get drunk on this stuff if you like so, hey, excellent beer.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Brutalist can, guaranteeing me of 25 oz of sexiness. Clear, yella, sticky white head. Powdery aroma. Very low hopping, slightly sweet, really not much going on here at all. ABV is well masked, FWIW. Medium to slightly light body. Picked this tick up at the RaceTrac minimart in Cumming, GA.

ArŰmes de malt, gas carbonique et leger sucre. Rien ŗ signaler en bouche ŗ part un goŻt subtil de houblon, melon et malt. Carbonation trop ťlevť.

Drank from a bottle. Canadian (Labatt) version, 5.5%, used to be 6.0%. Overall not bad for an ice beer, and leagues ahead of Busch Light. Less watery, with a nice golden colour. Would buy again, but in smaller quantity if possible.

24 oz. can from notes. Pours a clear yellow gold with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have corn and grainy malts, metallic notes, not smooth, actually a bit harsh, I admit I am doing this strictly for the tick, not worth having again.

Can 473ml @ Hotel room, Hyatt Place, Pittsburgh, PA
Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma has notes of malt, corn and apples. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft. Why am I willingly buying these shitty beers? Too punish my self maybe? I really need to make better life choices...

Can, A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is rather corn-ish, with some generic fruityness. Itís medium bodied and quite dry, with a decent carbonation level. Corn and a generic fruityness in the flavor, as well as a hint of bitterness. Medium length finish. Rather bland and unpleasant this one. 150617

Pours a straw color. Large white but thin head at the pour. Lots and lots of little bubbles coming up from the bottom. Thereís some lacing. Eh, for the most part, nothing special.

Aroma is sweet. Itís a clean smell. Fresh almost. I donít pick up on much of anything else.

Taste is pretty good. Iím guessing it has some rice in it. Most ice beer has a pretty harsh, or at least, a noticable alcohol taste. This doesnít. I like that. Other than that, not a lot of taste.I do taste some light hops in there.

Mouthfeel is light. I would call this a light ice beer. Very drinkable.

Overall, this is very tasty. This is the first time Iíve had this. I used to think Bud Ice was King of Ice Beers. But, I stand corrected. i think this is. Itís very drinkable. Itís cheap. Itís high in alcohol. Itís easy to drink. Itís really good. Iíll buy this again!
