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.

Busch Ice taste like a sweet water down Busch, if your want to go with an Anheuser Ice go with Bud Ice. Itís the better beer of the two. It just tastes acidic. and Bailz is right it looks like pee.

I would rate it lower if I could. Immitation beer at its finest, and a wonderful example of capitalism in action, that is, making the cheapest product possible and selling for highest price market will allow. Acquisition wholesale cost = 25 cents, sells for $2.50 and up at restaurants. Calling this thing beer is disrepectful to the word, and the entire concept of the tradition.

Some people say beer is beer. Not me. If you like beer at all, dont drink this rank garbage. Regular busch isnt bad, but this givs it a bad name.

Imagine the flavorless busch light. Now take that, and throw in more alcohol. Thatís all you are getting with this beer. Buy this or any other íiceí beer for similar tastes and similar effects - get drunk quicker for less money.

does "ice" mean "watered down"? because this beer doesnít taste like anything more than dirty water...

Much better than itís Light sister, but only because it doesnít leave your mouth feeling like you need to pressure wash it. Also, the higher alcohol content helps the wallet on those looking for a high buzz-per-dollar ratio

From the makers of Crap, bring you: Crap Ice. Thing is, Iím not too sure that this camel piss is anything but melted ice cubes with yellow food coloring. In a word: delicious.
