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.

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.

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.

Not a fan of Busch and wondering why these make their way up in Canada. Alright, seems like Labatt brews it here, and at 5.5% ABV. Expecting this one to be a bit more golden, but no. Pale yellow like their normal version. White head, does last a while and the lacing is pretty good (almost with a creamy edge). Mild aromas of corn and other adjuncts. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel and medium-bodied. Same for the flavours, mild, corn, adjuncts. Nothing really bad here (overall mild) and I can understand why my friend like this one to get drunk on. The Canadian version seems better, judging from the reviews.

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!

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.

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.
