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.

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.

473ml can from the lcbo. Pours yellow with a white head that lasts and laces. Aroma of dust. Minimal flavour but not sweet or overly adjucty. Not fucken bad!

Had this at a neighbor’s BBQ. Pale gold color and faint tangy/hoppy aroma---at least it had an aroma...Taste is what you’d expect: Adjunct-influenced sweetness with light hop profile and moderately hefty carbonation for bite. Quaffable when served good and cold.

can. Poured clear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Sweet corny grain aroma. Light body, average carbonation. Pale malts, cereal grain flavour, sweet pale malt. I don’t drink Busch often but i prefer just plain ol’ Busch, the extra 0.5% alcohol is not worth it.

Can. Pours clear yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is corn and rice with Pils malt, earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Busch Ice smells cheap. It’s 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.

Can. Pours a golden colour with almost no head. Light body. As refreshing as drinking a glass of water. That’s it.
