Busch Ice has a rich, smooth taste with exceptional drinkability and a slightly sweet finish. Busch Ice undergoes Anheuser-Buschís 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. You know this wasnít as bad as I would have originally thought. It pours a rather deep, sickly urine color with a rather dense white head that has very little retention and no lacing. Aroma is big corn, esters, formaldihyde, some vegetal notes. Big seltzer mouthfeel with a slightly creamy body. Taste is pretty much typical macro lager but has a bit more depth. At 6.7%, itís not quite a malt liquor or full ice beer, which is probably why it is overall inoffensive. Not bad. I was terrified to try it but now Iím a firm believer.

Not a fan of Busch and wondering why these make their way up in Canada. Alright, seems like Labatt brews it here, and at 5.5% ABV. Expecting this one to be a bit more golden, but no. Pale yellow like their normal version. White head, does last a while and the lacing is pretty good (almost with a creamy edge). Mild aromas of corn and other adjuncts. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel and medium-bodied. Same for the flavours, mild, corn, adjuncts. Nothing really bad here (overall mild) and I can understand why my friend like this one to get drunk on. The Canadian version seems better, judging from the reviews.

Clear golden yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of nail polish remover. Fortunately Iíve never tasted actual nail polich remover, so Iím not sure how the flavor compares.

Not much difference btw. Ice or normal Bush . Not much of anything , alco-sweet ... Small head , pale ... Slightly toxic :)... Remember NATURAL CARBONATION !!!

A light corny aroma. Very pale gold with a substantial white head. Near medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is very pale malt. Finishes with virtually no hop and something of a papery taste. After awhile some bitter does seem to come forth, but not much.

24 ounce can. Pours a clear golden yellow, with a thin white head. Is very similiar to the regular Busch beer, but for me the alcohol balances out the flavor abit. Not bad as it is a cheap way to get liquored up, but Iíd rather go an alternate route when looking to get drunk.

355ml can. Clear yellow pour, white foam. Apples in the aroma, a little lemon. Taste has some sweet grains and apple notes. Finish is pretty bland and flat. Light body, fizzy in the mouth. I knew what I was getting into with this one, but I had to tick it.

Soddy-Daisy, Tn. - some random convenience store - 24 oz. can. Light golden pour, pithy white head. Wet paper bag aroma with some grainy accents. Non-deScript cheap lager flavor with some corniness, a hint of soggy cereal and some slight boozy notes. Very dry mouthfeel. Palatable.

Big boy can picked up at a gas station near the VA/NC border. Split with some chill bros. Light gold with hardly any head whatsoever. Pretty papery nose. Little else. Light body, tastes of nothing really. Very active carbonation. Watery. Overall, thereís nothing to hate here. Nothing to commend, either.
