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.

Had this at a neighbors BBQ. Pale gold color and faint tangy/hoppy aroma---at least it had an aroma...Taste is what youd expect: Adjunct-influenced sweetness with light hop profile and moderately hefty carbonation for bite. Quaffable when served good and cold.

Gold cheap beer. Smells bad tastes pretty bad. Regular Busch is better. This stuff is harsh and is not easy to drink.

Health piss. Medium white head. Aroma: Malt, chemicals. Flavor: Corn, toilet bowl cleaner. Finish: Something DuPont would spill in the river. Ice Beers are brewed for a cheap drunk. Bums: Molson Ice, Ice House, Bud Ice or any Malt Liquor is better. Still, it beats Natty Ice but that isnt saying much.

Busch Ice smells cheap. Its taste is essentially neutral. What flavor is present is a little sweet and very grainy. It has a malt liquor profile. Not a great beer, but the price point fits any budget.

I get some sweetish banana Runts candy on the nose along with the tiniest bit of malt underneath. Somewhat sweet on the palate with the same light malt and banana flavors up front. The flavor doesnt last long though, despite the somewhat sweet intensity of the initial impression. The carbonation scrubs the malt and banana flavor to a bland sourness at the midway and then turns to this very watery flavor followed by a very dry, almost furry impression on the tongue and cheek during the not so short finish. The weird over-carbonated and dry feeling on the finish lasts longer than the actual taste of flavors.
