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.

A light corny aroma. Very pale gold with a substantial white head. Near medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is very pale malt. Finishes with virtually no hop and something of a papery taste. After awhile some bitter does seem to come forth, but not much.

Can shared at RBWG 2014 Late Night tasting - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. Pale malts abound in this one, some light cereal notes, hay. Simple stuff. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more sugary cereal, hay. Basic but not terrible.

I think I offered this to a bum once and he even threw it away. One of the worst beverages in history.

GT2 (8332) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Can. You know this wasn’t 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%, it’s 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 I’m a firm believer.

I missed this classy, classy beer at RBWG, so I searched far and wide amongst all the gas stations in Kentucky until I found one. Well worth the search. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin fizzy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of green apple jolly ranchers and a faint bit of grainy malt. The taste is the same Jolly Rancher apple notes, grainy malts, mild corn in the finish. Thin and watery, high carbonation. Not terribly offensive.

Can at RBWG. Pours yellow with white head. Nose and taste of corn and metal. Pretty awful. Light body.
