COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Urine color with big white head. It goes all downhill from there. Little aroma of note. Tastes acidic. Stay away like the plague.

Just another cheap ice brew. It also causes really bad hangovers.

24oz can. Looks like piss. Smells like metal and fusels, perhaps some rotten malt or hops. Taste is amazingly awful. Normally I pour something this bad on my plants, but I donít want to kill them, and this might do it.

Bad beer and less taste. Actually. I take that back. More taste, itís just a really shitty taste.

Even long before I was old enough to drink, I used to shudder at the thought of this beer. Tastes like it was fermented next to a heater in a prison. Actually, that would explain a lot about ABís beers. This beer really sucks, even more than ABís other fine offerings. Taste is of corn and rice, and the flavor is of cotton candy mixed with terpentine. Donít drink this. If you have children in college, call them and tell them not to drink this. Yuk.

For those who "donít get" this s tyle of beer: It is about people who are not interested in beer (as we are, anyway) and want to get a buzz or maybe get really drunk. Alcohol can be fun, and if you want to drink to get drunk, rather than drink to enjoy some really tasty concoctions, Busch Ice is a reasonable choice. It has more alcohol per can than other commen or cheap domestic beers, and it is easy for non-hop heads to drink (i.e. not very bitter, or flavorful at all). It serves a purpose.

everything said of busch goes doubly so for busch ice. Its not so bad if you dont consider it beer. Its just water with alcohol in it and a mild skunk aftertaste.

SERVE THIS STUFF COLD AS POSSIBLE. If it starts to warm up then you will know what I am talking about. This stuff is terrible
