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.

Unlike it’s brother Busch regular beer, this is just nasty in my opinion. Usually when a beer has the word "Ice" in it, it immediately means strong skunky, high alcohol content beer. This one is no exception. This just is hard to drink period, the alcohol content just overrides any flavor. I give the appearance a 3 because it’s really hard to foul that one up in a beer. The aroma isn’t pleasant at all, like a malt liquor and completely different then Busch regular beer in my opinion. I guess if one wants to get smashed on the cheaper per ml alcohol content, other then a Malt Liquor, this has rank right up there. Just not an enjoyable beer.

This beer is no different than any of its counterparts. It sucks. It is watered down and is only good if you want to get drunk.

blech...I’m rating these cause they were stapels. Bland yellow color with some alchol in the smell and flavor. Not much bitterness. Worse as it warms

The only reason I am rating this overall as an 5 is the price. One word...COLLEGE!

Can. Sour malt aroma. Clear gold with a small white head. Waery sour barley malt flavor. Watery, highly carbonated body.

Consumed out of a 24oz can.It had a bit of that "nail polish remover" taste to it.I don’t know if it was old because A.B. uses the "julian" coding on their bottle.I like bad beers but I will pass on this one.

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.
