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.

Arômes de malt, gas carbonique et leger sucre. Rien à signaler en bouche à part un goût subtil de houblon, melon et malt. Carbonation trop élevé.

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

..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.

This is a competitor for the lowest of the low, but it beats out Natural Light because it doesn’t give me a splitting headache after a single can the way that beer does. Also, less heavy and disgusting than miller high life. Overall, about on par with coors light, but a very different character. This is a heavy beer, strong, high alcohol content. In my opinion, this is the worst I’ve tried, however, among the "ice" beers. I strongly prefer milwaukee’s best ice (if I’m going to be drinking one, honestly they’re not something I’d usually choose on my own. That one has a stronger alcohol character to it...and in this one the alcohol is less noticeable, more masked...but it’s masked by a nasty, sour taste that is, in my opinion, worse than the alcohol. I do not recommend this one.

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.
