Bud Iceís slightly higher alcohol content is much more immediatey apparent by its aroma and flavor than the other "Ice" beers, and is vastly inferior to Icehouse. This is sweeter than most lagers (kind of reminds me of the sugar alcohol used in zero calorie chewing gum), and actually offers a decent middle of the road mouth-feel that is pleasingly full but not too heavy. Itís alright every once-in-awhile, I reckon, but not great, and not the best in its field. Give this one at least one shot; some folks really seem to like it, but you probably wonít.

33cl can @ home. Payed Ä4.29 for it, so this better be the best America has got to offer me. Clear golden yellow colour with a medium sized white head. Smells malts, pilsener. Tastes malts, grains, corn. Easily drinkable, thin body. Probably great beer for a beerpong tournament.

25floz can with "170902" that is perhaps some kind of freshness date ($1.50). Poured into a nonic pint glass. Ice House is my go to "Ice" beer, but sometimes itís Bud Ice (not that I drink "Ice" beers all that often). It glows a light golden hue, erstwhile the the bubbly carbonation soars upward to support an adequate amount of head. Inoffensive on the nose similar to cardboard. Tastes kinda like cardboard too, but with maybe a little mold for some zing. An easy drinkiní pale American macro lager that is alright for what it is.

Can. Pours a fizzy golden color with minimal head. Corny, sweet aroma. Sweet flavor with grain and corn notes. Slightly viscous on the palate. Not good.

Yessss, Bud Ice...that cereal flavored water that goes down so smooth like piss-water. What the doctor orders when you need to cycle the kidneys out ;)

Can (technically not a malt liquor, but part of the line up regardless). The following is a compilation of a dozen peoplesí thoughts who shared this brew with me at my first (and perhaps last?) Malt Liquor Dexterity Games Tournament to celebrate my birthday. Keeping in mind that most of the participants are not regular beer raters, here we go: clear pale yellow, aroma of wet dog, weak corny flavour, thin, insipid, nearly flavourless, the lordís drink, this makes my pee clear, not premium, more like freemium, like Mrs. Anheuserís bush, no flavour so easy light drinking, like a cool glass of water, no different from cold Bud Light, essence of clydesdale, a nice break from beer

Cut and paste all these mass produced beers would have a hard time telling any of them apart

Backlog. College chugging beer. Goes down easy but has a weird aftertaste. Not nice. Avoid.

As a cheap beer, Iíd say go for it. When I want a cold beer but Iím strapped for cash, Iíll pick a 40oz of this up and relax. Typically I drink IPAs and Stouts, but on occasion I have to go back to my white trash roots. It goes down easy, doesnít make the mouth taste horrible, and at 5.5% Alc, it does the job if you just want to relax before bed or after work. Where I live it is only $2.49 for a 40oz, so itís cheaper than water.

Originally rated on 6/25/08.Another beer for high schoolers and college kids, ah i can remember this from back then. Not good beer -no flavor, smells bad and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. Avoid this and most other A.B. products

ozzy70 (1125) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 2, 2016
24 oz. can from Quicky Speedee Mart. Pours clear golden, no head. Aroma was grains, rice and corn. Taste was sweet. Better than expected.
