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.

Corno-alcoho-water! Best describes the stench of this amalgamation of maze and other atrocities. Appearance is a pale urine like yellow that glistens like a freshly filled toilet bowl. Head? Very little. That disappears faster than asking my wife to give me a Cleveland Steamer. Light and crisp mouth-feel combined with the gurgle in my stomach is always promising. Perhaps a BM will be in order after completing the fine alcoholic beverage from Anheuser. Palate is as lifeless as the surface of the moon. It’s not as exquisite as a Black Label 11-11 or a Josef Hoffbauer Light per se, but the awful-atude is palpable. Something to pick up for your lady when you want a divorce.

Pours a golden yellow color with aroma of corn and some hops. Flavor is more or less water with some hops present.

We dubbed this "The Fancy", if only becuase we had five dollars and 7 mouths to buy beer for. It is terrible, terrible beer. It’s sort of like a pitcher filled with one Busch light, 6 cups of water, and whatever they use to flavor banana Runts. If you’re going to drink an Ice beer (which you probably shouldn’t), don’t let it be this one.

Pale yellow, fizzy, watery and just awful. Definitely one of the worst ice beers out there. Not much taste, a little alcohol, and a lot of headache.

everything said of busch goes doubly so for busch ice. Its not so bad if you dont consider it beer. Its just water with alcohol in it and a mild skunk aftertaste.

Not really that good but something that is super cheap and good for quenching your thirst on a hot summer day.

does "ice" mean "watered down"? because this beer doesn’t taste like anything more than dirty water...

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.

Why are beers like this even made? Tastes like gutter swill ice. Looks like corn water and tastes harldy like beer. Don’t buy.
