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.

Can. Sour, old vegetable malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Primarily a metallic bitterness with light sour malt flavor. Drinkable but just barely.

Light yellow in color, small thin white head that fades quickly. Light sweet off smelling corn aroma with a geriatric little hop. As expected it is thin on the palate with a grainy watery, slightly sweet finish but packs a little whollop.

Corno-alcoho-water! Best describes the stench of this amalgamation of maze and other atrocities. Appearance is a pale urine like yellow that glistens like a freshly filled toilet bowl. Head? Very little. That disappears faster than asking my wife to give me a Cleveland Steamer. Light and crisp mouth-feel combined with the gurgle in my stomach is always promising. Perhaps a BM will be in order after completing the fine alcoholic beverage from Anheuser. Palate is as lifeless as the surface of the moon. Its not as exquisite as a Black Label 11-11 or a Josef Hoffbauer Light per se, but the awful-atude is palpable. Something to pick up for your lady when you want a divorce.

Pours a golden yellow color with aroma of corn and some hops. Flavor is more or less water with some hops present.

Even long before I was old enough to drink, I used to shudder at the thought of this beer. Tastes like it was fermented next to a heater in a prison. Actually, that would explain a lot about ABs beers. This beer really sucks, even more than ABs other fine offerings. Taste is of corn and rice, and the flavor is of cotton candy mixed with terpentine. Dont drink this. If you have children in college, call them and tell them not to drink this. Yuk.

Can. This beer is best used for those times that youve run out of cash for crack, and need a good buzz. Otherwise, avoid this beer at all costs. Complete and total crap. Living in Jacksonville FL (home of an A-B brewery) I get to see every mistake A-B makes. This is one of them. Thanks for nothing guys.

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

This is a competitor for the lowest of the low, but it beats out Natural Light because it doesnt give me a splitting headache after a single can the way that beer does. Also, less heavy and disgusting than miller high life. Overall, about on par with coors light, but a very different character. This is a heavy beer, strong, high alcohol content. In my opinion, this is the worst Ive tried, however, among the "ice" beers. I strongly prefer milwaukees best ice (if Im going to be drinking one, honestly theyre not something Id usually choose on my own. That one has a stronger alcohol character to it...and in this one the alcohol is less noticeable, more masked...but its masked by a nasty, sour taste that is, in my opinion, worse than the alcohol. I do not recommend this one.
