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.

Consumed out of a 24oz can.It had a bit of that "nail polish remover" taste to it.I don’t know if it was old because A.B. uses the "julian" coding on their bottle.I like bad beers but I will pass on this one.

Stumbling onto the crappiest beer list inspired me to pick up a $0.99 25oz tall boy. Clear golden pour with giant initial white head that goes bye bye. Wow the smell of this is just horrible. Like dead beer garbage with stale vitamins and sweet corn booze. Taste is slightly better, but weak stale corny nastiness. Really is deserving for its ranking.

i could not believe my eyes once i saw this fine dirty thirty sitting in the woodmans ice cooler. i thought busch ice was a myth, but i was wrong, it is real and it has alcohol in it, and thats about all i can say about it.

Ghastly, appalling, disgusting beer. Truly, honestly, desperately bad beer.

One for the tick only. Putrid vegetal aroma is in your face as soon as you crack the can. Luckily, the flavor is not half as bad. Mellow corny sweetness with a whisper of hop grassiness towards the back. Medium bodied with a fizzy but not unpleasant finish. Pours pale yellow, as expected, and holds a wispy head. Its bad but not atrocious.

The only saving grace for the ice beers is that the alcohol content is high, to facilitate effective funneling.

I just shotgunned three of these things and I didn’t puke so it can’t be all bad.
