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.

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.

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.

Frank (4043) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2015
This is a Jolly Rancher centric ice beer. Its kind of sharp w/ fruity stressed yeast notes on the nose. Its sweet and thick w/ lots of oxidized cardboardy elements. I guess you can get drunk on this stuff if you like so, hey, excellent beer.

Aurelius (5128) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2015
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.

Armes de malt, gas carbonique et leger sucre. Rien signaler en bouche part un got subtil de houblon, melon et malt. Carbonation trop lev.

Drank from a bottle. Canadian (Labatt) version, 5.5%, used to be 6.0%. Overall not bad for an ice beer, and leagues ahead of Busch Light. Less watery, with a nice golden colour. Would buy again, but in smaller quantity if possible.
