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.

Stumbling onto the crappiest beer list inspired me to pick up a $0.99 25oz tall boy. Clear golden pour with giant initial white head that goes bye bye. Wow the smell of this is just horrible. Like dead beer garbage with stale vitamins and sweet corn booze. Taste is slightly better, but weak stale corny nastiness. Really is deserving for its ranking.

pours a very pale yellow with next to no head. taste is typical macro lager with just a hint of alcohol to provide a bit of taste. You know what to expect going into this one, but I will give it credit for hiding the alcohol well which is not typical of high gravity bargain beers.

Pours a light golden yellow. Aromas of minor hops, corn, grains. Flavor is light, crisp, watery with a little hop and not much else.

Yup. Definitely this is a straight-up "COLLEGE ONLY" beer. I’d take Steel Reserve over this stuff.

I would rather drink regular ol busch. The ice is like drinking busch, but added nastyness. Its slightly sweeter which messes with what little taste it has.

25oz can 11/26/13 (Hotel Stl)-Pours clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of corn and swetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just another malt liquor.
