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.

Had this at a neighbor’s BBQ. Pale gold color and faint tangy/hoppy aroma---at least it had an aroma...Taste is what you’d expect: Adjunct-influenced sweetness with light hop profile and moderately hefty carbonation for bite. Quaffable when served good and cold.

can. Poured clear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Sweet corny grain aroma. Light body, average carbonation. Pale malts, cereal grain flavour, sweet pale malt. I don’t drink Busch often but i prefer just plain ol’ Busch, the extra 0.5% alcohol is not worth it.

Busch Ice smells cheap. It’s taste is essentially neutral. What flavor is present is a little sweet and very grainy. It has a malt liquor profile. Not a great beer, but the price point fits any budget.

473ml can at the golf course. Smells rough......corn, fusel, sweet, cheap malts. Flavor actually isnt that bad. Its kinda refreshing, the sweetness disapears and its actually kinda crisp. Light cereals in the finish with a hint of apples. Super cold on the golf course, this is passable. Im shocked!

Can. Pours a golden colour with almost no head. Light body. As refreshing as drinking a glass of water. That’s it.
