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.

This is my favorite ice beer. Its so much better than Natural Ice (but then again, anything is). For the price you pay, you cant really go wrong with Busch Ice.

Green apple, corn aroma. Kind of tart flavor in a semi-disgusting way. Hell of a deal though. Thin body, pours pale yellow. Head goes away right away.

Soddy-Daisy, Tn. - some random convenience store - 24 oz. can. Light golden pour, pithy white head. Wet paper bag aroma with some grainy accents. Non-descript cheap lager flavor with some corniness, a hint of soggy cereal and some slight boozy notes. Very dry mouthfeel. Palatable.

Big boy can picked up at a gas station near the VA/NC border. Split with some chill bros. Light gold with hardly any head whatsoever. Pretty papery nose. Little else. Light body, tastes of nothing really. Very active carbonation. Watery. Overall, theres nothing to hate here. Nothing to commend, either.

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

473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear bright golden colour with lasting white head. Aroma is vegetal with stale grains. Flavour is corny with some stale graininess. No finish. Weak body. Bad but not putrid.
