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.

Just Busch with the fictitious "ice filtering" procedure. Not worth drinking at any temperature.

shrubber85 (7290) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Can. Sour, old vegetable malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Primarily a metallic bitterness with light sour malt flavor. Drinkable but just barely.

Another supercan purchase to sip while strolling the Vegas Strip, another supercan discard after about 10 sips. "Bland" is being complimentary of this featureless macro,

For the price, highest alcohol content in class. Therefore, it achieves exactly what it is meant to do. Like every other íIceí beer, this doesnít go down as smooth as other cheapies.

Well, it has a relatively high alcohol content, and thatís the only upside. A horrid mess of metal and slight hay and cereal.

Oh my word... Iím not a big fan of ice beers, but this is far from one of the best (though thatís like picking the shiniest turd).

SudsMcDuff (5789) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Sampled from a 16 ounce can, it doesnít have an body what so ever and its taste is seriously lacking, it does have a good abv and is quite cheap, so you decide. ......rerate...i guess....i really thought i hadnít had this before but that shows ya, the mind starts to wonder after 500+ beers....nice smell really,doesnít smell cheap at all....good good lacing to ,wow, looks and smells the part so far...and the taste is of corn flakes, i have underestimated this beer,...hey its still in the lower ranks of pale lagers but this one isnít that digusting so....(scores changed accordingly)

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Soddy-Daisy, Tn. - some random convenience store - 24 oz. can. Light golden pour, pithy white head. Wet paper bag aroma with some grainy accents. Non-descript cheap lager flavor with some corniness, a hint of soggy cereal and some slight boozy notes. Very dry mouthfeel. Palatable.
