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.

High in alcohol, so hopefully you can get drunk enough to not realize how offensive the flavor it is. Yellow color, watery with a bitter, awful taste. Absolute pee.

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

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!

Pours a light golden yellow. Aromas of minor hops, corn, grains. Flavor is light, crisp, watery with a little hop and not much else.

Can, lots and lots of cans, this is what we used to drink in college, kept it ice cold, then broke it out to get that 5.9% ABV, which was much more than all those light beers we used to drink. Not a proud rating for me, but I did respect this beer in my childhood.
