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.

This was not very good. Even when ice was the “happinin” thing in beer. I can’t remember any Busch being good.

10/5/07 From 24oz can. Aroma is sweet, crisp and corny as hell. Appearance is very yellow with a low white head. Flavor is simple and artificial with rice, corn and some kind of slightly earthy hop extract. This is weird and carbonic and I presume left me slightly sterile. Mouthfeel is light bodied, watery, spritzy, with a high carb texture. Overall, this is drinkable, but has such low character, I really wish it was a 12oz can so I could finish it twice as fast. It’s like watching masterpiece theater reruns with a bottle of wild turkey in your lap; bland and white trash all at the same time.

Can. This beer is best used for those times that you’ve run out of cash for crack, and need a good buzz. Otherwise, avoid this beer at all costs. Complete and total crap. Living in Jacksonville FL (home of an A-B brewery) I get to see every mistake A-B makes. This is one of them. Thanks for nothing guys.

A bit more of an alcohol kick at 5.9% but that’s about the only redeeming factor you’ll find here. Otherwise, no different from the rest of the mass produced American Standard swill.

Pours a golden yellow color with aroma of corn and some hops. Flavor is more or less water with some hops present.

I do not understand the whole ice thing other than as a marketing ploy by the big boys

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 Busch with more alcohol, whoopee! Less corny than Bud, gets you drunk if that’s what you are after.

..nothing good about this iced down, worse version of busch. I really think it’s for the hardcore alcoholics that have lost the taste receptors in their tongue, cause this rice ice is shit.
