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.

Headache in a can. Natural Ice clone. Do not drink. You do not need to get drunk this badly.

Can. Sour malt aroma. Clear gold with a small white head. Waery sour barley malt flavor. Watery, highly carbonated body.

Yes it looks like a very bad beer but I cant give it any points for that. That is the best I can say about this slop.

Unreal I found this, but my ticking ass scooped it up! Smells like expired corn and gasoline. The flavor is not that offensive, well its not good. Lots of cereal grains, corn, and booze going on. This might even be a tad better than Icehouse and certainly beats Natty Ice. But what compare turds? 3 points of interest.....1)Still sucks 2)will get you wasted 3)Less rubbing alcohol burn than Natty Ice or Beast Ice for the same coin. Take that for what its worth. Overall still sucks!

Bottle. Pours yellow with an average sized white head. Aroma of corn, grain, and alcohol. Flavor is pretty much a beefy version of busch, i liked this better than the regular version and the light version. But still not good.

Hmmm. Right from the can .WOW they took regular busch and left it in the freezer for a few days. Wow what a really refreshing piece of crap beer this is. Bland, thin , lack luster, unimaginative garbage.

Why are beers like this even made? Tastes like gutter swill ice. Looks like corn water and tastes harldy like beer. Don’t buy.

473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear bright golden colour with lasting white head. Aroma is vegetal with stale grains. Flavour is corny with some stale graininess. No finish. Weak body. Bad but not putrid.
