COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Busch Ice has a rich, smooth taste with exceptional drinkability and a slightly sweet finish. Busch Ice undergoes Anheuser-Buschs 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.

This is a competitor for the lowest of the low, but it beats out Natural Light because it doesnt give me a splitting headache after a single can the way that beer does. Also, less heavy and disgusting than miller high life. Overall, about on par with coors light, but a very different character. This is a heavy beer, strong, high alcohol content. In my opinion, this is the worst Ive tried, however, among the "ice" beers. I strongly prefer milwaukees best ice (if Im going to be drinking one, honestly theyre not something Id usually choose on my own. That one has a stronger alcohol character to it...and in this one the alcohol is less noticeable, more masked...but its masked by a nasty, sour taste that is, in my opinion, worse than the alcohol. I do not recommend this one.

Pours a straw color. Large white but thin head at the pour. Lots and lots of little bubbles coming up from the bottom. Theres some lacing. Eh, for the most part, nothing special.

Aroma is sweet. Its a clean smell. Fresh almost. I dont pick up on much of anything else.

Taste is pretty good. Im guessing it has some rice in it. Most ice beer has a pretty harsh, or at least, a noticable alcohol taste. This doesnt. I like that. Other than that, not a lot of taste.I do taste some light hops in there.

Mouthfeel is light. I would call this a light ice beer. Very drinkable.

Overall, this is very tasty. This is the first time Ive had this. I used to think Bud Ice was King of Ice Beers. But, I stand corrected. i think this is. Its very drinkable. Its cheap. Its high in alcohol. Its easy to drink. Its really good. Ill buy this again!

We dubbed this "The Fancy", if only becuase we had five dollars and 7 mouths to buy beer for. It is terrible, terrible beer. Its sort of like a pitcher filled with one Busch light, 6 cups of water, and whatever they use to flavor banana Runts. If youre going to drink an Ice beer (which you probably shouldnt), dont let it be this one.

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.

College beer and nothing more. Or as we called it at 33 Clayton "Blackout juice."

Why not, you are trying to get drunk so you might as well buy the stuff with more alcohol so you can really fell horrible the next morning.
