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.

This beer is better than you would expect. For .58 cents per can at 6.99 a 12 Pack, this beer is a bargain buy. Everyone on this website compares this ~.60 cent beer to beers that cost up to $5.00 a piece. That’s ridiculous. Busch Ice is only sold in certain markets, and in Raleigh, NC this beer in sold in 6.99 12 packs (I have not seen it in bottles, 24 packs, 16 oz cans, etc). For the price, this beer is very good. It pours a delicious amber color with a 2 inch head which quickly fades in the face of consistent streaming bubbles. First of all, there are no offensive aromas or tastes, and that’s important for a "cheap beer" (it’s commonly alleged that "cheap beers" are nasty). The taste is slightly sweet yet very smooth with a slight carbonation scrub Second, this beer rivals Bud Light Platinum in taste, costs much less, and has approximately the same amount of alcohol. Third, this beer has some "cult" appeal because it is only sold regionally - unlike Bud Platinum and other ice beers. Ultimately, I would highly recommend this beer. It is my favorite ice beer. Busch Ice is better than Natural Ice, though I prefer Natural for its light beer variety (Natural Light). Finally, this beer is just as good as Bud Light Platinum (or another other ice beer) for a fraction of the cost. *Note that I am not comparing this beer to craft brews or other specialty lagers, but there is no denying that this beer has been greatly underrated by the self-proclaimed beer snobs of the world wide web. Suddenly, everyone is a beer expert, and no one likes the mass produced brews. Rethink the group think. Busch Ice is pretty darn good.
