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.

What can I say it’s swill but I enjoy a 40oz non the less I’d pick this over any other iced beer for its "drinkability" its pretty smooth and crisp and actually drinks more like a malt liquor no need to describe it we all know what it is but gets the job done without the hangover the next day we’ll in my case....cheers

not sure what "ice" has to do with brewing. It appears that marketing, rather than brewing, has more effect on beers in the USA. go figure.

I prefer Busch, to the supposed "king". I assume they are both brewed with rice per AB company guidelines. but, for my taste Busch has more beer taste. I have no issue with having a couple Busch. as for the retarded "king", I expect more because they gladly give themselves that crown. too bad, they dont follow the crown with quality.

12oz can from the state store

Pours clear light golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates fairly quick, some lacing. Corn, malts, grains and alcohols.

Not going to finish this one, footbalmed.

Not much of anything other than mild corn/malts in the aroma. The flavor is corn/malts, rather bland in the middle and a heat/noticeable alcohol in the finish.

Backlog. This one is foul...even highschool kids know it is. Watery and chemical like character. Yuck.

Can: Ugh. Like drinking bleach!!!! Corn water light yellow pour. Astringent aroma. As bad as all ice beers are this is even worse!

donandres (681) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle poured to pint glass very cold beer
Appearance: Light yellow head, a lot of lacing
Aroma: scent smell of malt, nothing else
Taste: not really great
Mouth feel: very carbonated
Overall: good beer for the hot weather, specially camping outdoors, nothing special
One of the cheapest beers in the grocery aisle
just got it to taste it, i promise not to do it again

AgentAle (1817) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Aroma is light roasted malts and corn/rice adjunct. Definitely some sulphur notes. Taste is bland graininess with almost no hop character. The 6 percent abv is obvious and the dank maltiness is all encompassing. Appearance is a clear gold body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
