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.

Can shared at RBWG 2014 Late Night tasting - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. Pale malts abound in this one, some light cereal notes, hay. Simple stuff. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more sugary cereal, hay. Basic but not terrible.

Some people say beer is beer. Not me. If you like beer at all, dont drink this rank garbage. Regular busch isnt bad, but this givs it a bad name.

I get some sweetish banana Runts candy on the nose along with the tiniest bit of malt underneath. Somewhat sweet on the palate with the same light malt and banana flavors up front. The flavor doesn’t last long though, despite the somewhat sweet intensity of the initial impression. The carbonation scrubs the malt and banana flavor to a bland sourness at the midway and then turns to this very watery flavor followed by a very dry, almost “furry” impression on the tongue and cheek during the not so short finish. The weird over-carbonated and dry feeling on the finish lasts longer than the actual taste of flavors.

Drank from a bottle. Canadian (Labatt) version, 5.5%, used to be 6.0%. Overall not bad for an ice beer, and leagues ahead of Busch Light. Less watery, with a nice golden colour. Would buy again, but in smaller quantity if possible.

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.

Sampled from a 16 ounce can, it doesn’t have an body what so ever and its taste is seriously lacking, it does have a good abv and is quite cheap, so you decide. ......rerate...i guess....i really thought i hadn’t had this before but that shows ya, the mind starts to wonder after 500+ beers....nice smell really,doesn’t smell cheap at all....good good lacing to ,wow, looks and smells the part so far...and the taste is of corn flakes, i have underestimated this beer,...hey its still in the lower ranks of pale lagers but this one isn’t that digusting so....(scores changed accordingly)
