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.

Sampled during Swig-a-Swill Guzzler in St Paul, MN. Good grief! I could not tell the difference between this Bud Ice. It has to be the same beer with a different package label.

Onward ho. Reviewed from notes. This was poured more than enough times in a pint glass and a pilsener. The appearance was a decent clear golden yellow color with a fast rising carbonation running about it. There is a head, but that dies within less than about fifteen seconds. There is some lacing, but that ends up sliding right on into the beer. The smell had some cooked vegetable/sort of sweet corniness to it. Its actually quite a weird smell to be honest. The taste well, that leaves a lot to be desired as it portrays a lot of wateriness to it. The palate, it sits light and the carbonation is not really there. Overall, this is not much of a beer to me. I realize "light" can be good, but I say really only if you’re seeking it. I’m not seeking it.

After drinking Busch and Busch light, I was certainly expecting less rudeness. Aroma is about the same but...Much more crude than Busch in flavor, which I consider a decent lager. Very good carbonation and I appreciated that. Almost has that metallic coarse Melanie attitude about it. Could have a few more manners but after all it is an ICE beer, heheheh.

Tastes just like regular Busch, but nose has a faint hint of lime or something citrus. Basically not a good beer.

Brutalist can, guaranteeing me of 25 oz of sexiness. Clear, yella, sticky white head. Powdery aroma. Very low hopping, slightly sweet, really not much going on here at all. ABV is well masked, FWIW. Medium to slightly light body. Picked this tick up at the RaceTrac minimart in Cumming, GA.

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

High in alcohol, so hopefully you can get drunk enough to not realize how offensive the flavor it is. Yellow color, watery with a bitter, awful taste. Absolute pee.

473ml can at the golf course. Smells rough......corn, fusel, sweet, cheap malts. Flavor actually isnt that bad. Its kinda refreshing, the sweetness disapears and its actually kinda crisp. Light cereals in the finish with a hint of apples. Super cold on the golf course, this is passable. Im shocked!

This beer was great because I didnt have to change the numbers to rate it! Had this at a friends party, lets just say I was glad for the roughly 1 percent more alcohol it boasted over other pale lagers. Oh yeah, it tastes bad.

The best part about this beer is that it’s 5.9% - so even though you’re practically drinking water, you’ll at least feel it sooner. So yay?
