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.

It’s the beer of choice for poor college students.

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.

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.

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...

I thought Bush Light was bad until I ran into this, now this is really bad.

Imagine the flavorless busch light. Now take that, and throw in more alcohol. That’s all you are getting with this beer. Buy this or any other ’ice’ beer for similar tastes and similar effects - get drunk quicker for less money.

I don’t think there is a terrible amount of difference in flavor between this and regular Busch. This has a bit more alcohol, with that faint fruit skin and artifical malt liquor finish. Garbage.

Well, it has a relatively high alcohol content, and that’s the only upside. A horrid mess of metal and slight hay and cereal.

The best part about this beer is that it’s 5.9% - so even though you’re practically drinking water, you’ll at least feel it sooner. So yay?
