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.

pours a very pale yellow with next to no head. taste is typical macro lager with just a hint of alcohol to provide a bit of taste. You know what to expect going into this one, but I will give it credit for hiding the alcohol well which is not typical of high gravity bargain beers.

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

Why not, you are trying to get drunk so you might as well buy the stuff with more alcohol so you can really fell horrible the next morning.

beats busch light, but by a hair. watery taste, skunky aroma, great for beer pong or college drinking games, not much else.

We dubbed this "The Fancy", if only becuase we had five dollars and 7 mouths to buy beer for. It is terrible, terrible beer. It’s sort of like a pitcher filled with one Busch light, 6 cups of water, and whatever they use to flavor banana Runts. If you’re going to drink an Ice beer (which you probably shouldn’t), don’t let it be this one.

Had this at a neighbor’s BBQ. Pale gold color and faint tangy/hoppy aroma---at least it had an aroma...Taste is what you’d expect: Adjunct-influenced sweetness with light hop profile and moderately hefty carbonation for bite. Quaffable when served good and cold.

Gold cheap beer. Smells bad tastes pretty bad. Regular Busch is better. This stuff is harsh and is not easy to drink.

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 isn’t saying much.

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