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.

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.

Onward ho. Reviewed from notes. This was poured more than enough times in a pint glass and a pilsener. The appearance was a decent clear golden yellow color with a fast rising carbonation running about it. There is a head, but that dies within less than about fifteen seconds. There is some lacing, but that ends up sliding right on into the beer. The smell had some cooked vegetable/sort of sweet corniness to it. Its actually quite a weird smell to be honest. The taste well, that leaves a lot to be desired as it portrays a lot of wateriness to it. The palate, it sits light and the carbonation is not really there. Overall, this is not much of a beer to me. I realize "light" can be good, but I say really only if you’re seeking it. I’m not seeking it.

355ml can. Clear yellow pour, white foam. Apples in the aroma, a little lemon. Taste has some sweet grains and apple notes. Finish is pretty bland and flat. Light body, fizzy in the mouth. I knew what I was getting into with this one, but I had to tick it.

Beerdedone (3112) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2006
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.

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