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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can, pours bright yellow, strong smell, but clean and crisp taste, what you would expect.
