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.

Tastes just like regular Busch, but nose has a faint hint of lime or something citrus. Basically not a good beer.

The best part about this beer is that it’s 5.9% - so even though you’re practically drinking water, you’ll at least feel it sooner. So yay?

25oz can 11/26/13 (Hotel Stl)-Pours clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of corn and swetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just another malt liquor.

473ml can at the golf course. Smells rough......corn, fusel, sweet, cheap malts. Flavor actually isnt that bad. Its kinda refreshing, the sweetness disapears and its actually kinda crisp. Light cereals in the finish with a hint of apples. Super cold on the golf course, this is passable. Im shocked!

Sixth of eight in the eugene malt liqour experiment. Very nasty chemical skunk to this brew, just painful to smell, the taste lets the alcohol jump through and really assult the tastebuds with nastiness. This brew just tastes stall and god awful.

Canette 355ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez végétal de légumes bouilli et de maïs avec des notes herbeuses (gazon mouillé). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aqueuse. Léger goût de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve des traces de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) avec des notes de sucre chimique. Post-goût court, composé d’un goût résiduel de sucre chimique.

Ugh...I’ve gone on a cheap beer kick and this is awful. Barely any aroma. What was there was mostly metal. Pour was a medium gold with not many bubbles and no head. Taste was nasty. Lightly carbonated corn water with no aftertaste. Near syrupy which isn’t good for a pale lager. Blah. No wonder the 8 pack was only 7 dollars. Less than a dollar a beer is nature’s warning side.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2004 The beer leaves the cana light gold with a moderate sized whit semi-creamy head and the left over lace a thin coating upon the glass. Nose is malt, crisp and clean, start is lightly sweet with the top thin as water. Finish is strict in its acidity, the hops meek and the aftertaste dry as a desert summer. Been four plus years since I gagged one of these down.
