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.

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

Busch Ice smells cheap. Itís 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.

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

Itís the beer of choice for poor college students.

Had this in a 24 oz. can. Maybe it wasnít 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.
