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.

Green apple, corn aroma. Kind of tart flavor in a semi-disgusting way. Hell of a deal though. Thin body, pours pale yellow. Head goes away right away.

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.

Pours a straw color. Large white but thin head at the pour. Lots and lots of little bubbles coming up from the bottom. Thereís some lacing. Eh, for the most part, nothing special.

Aroma is sweet. Itís a clean smell. Fresh almost. I donít pick up on much of anything else.

Taste is pretty good. Iím guessing it has some rice in it. Most ice beer has a pretty harsh, or at least, a noticable alcohol taste. This doesnít. I like that. Other than that, not a lot of taste.I do taste some light hops in there.

Mouthfeel is light. I would call this a light ice beer. Very drinkable.

Overall, this is very tasty. This is the first time Iíve had this. I used to think Bud Ice was King of Ice Beers. But, I stand corrected. i think this is. Itís very drinkable. Itís cheap. Itís high in alcohol. Itís easy to drink. Itís really good. Iíll buy this again!

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