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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
