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.

It’s the beer of choice for poor college students.

Had this in a 24 oz. can. Maybe it wasn’t cold enough, but the flavor was actively bad. It gave me a buzz, though. If you ever drink this, have it as cold as possible to keep that flavor from rearing its ugly head.

Light yellow in color, small thin white head that fades quickly. Light sweet off smelling corn aroma with a geriatric little hop. As expected it is thin on the palate with a grainy watery, slightly sweet finish but packs a little whollop.

Busch Ice smells cheap. It’s taste is essentially neutral. What flavor is present is a little sweet and very grainy. It has a malt liquor profile. Not a great beer, but the price point fits any budget.

This beer is no different than any of its counterparts. It sucks. It is watered down and is only good if you want to get drunk.

5.9% ABV, and taste o.k. Plus it is cheap. I drank 8 of these and felt good. Kudos.

Ugh. Yet another "college" beer I had to endure while playing "beer pong." I had a hard time trying to gulp this. To the bins!
