24 oz. can - Born on 04 April 08:
Pours straw yellow with a white head that disappears after the first sip. The glass is clean as a whistle. Looks "flat" even though "fresh".
The smell is of some sweet grain...not much - almost nothing. Clean, to say the least.
The taste is of sweet grain, a touch of wet cardboard, tonic water, more sweetness (from alcohol?). Astringent harshness - odd from a macro. It leaves a rather unpleasant, bland aftertaste.
Light...fizzy despite lack of bubbles.
Very bland. A sweeter than typical macro. The .5% alcohol is part of the gimmick. Not much higher abv, but the alcohol, I assume is what's lending its higher sweetness than normal for the style. I had to force it down, as it's rather unpleasant. There are much better "ice beers" and macros out there.

I have been enjoying a few Ice style beers lately. Most of them seem to be a bolder version of the parent beer which to me is a good thing.
In this case I could see little in Bud Ice that resembled any A-B product. Maybe it could have come from Bud Light but certainly not from regular Bud.
Pours pale gold with a small white head that leaves rather quickly leaving almost no lace.
Smell is a pungent rice like scent.
Taste is modest and little in common with beer.
Mouthfeel is less than average.
Overall a disappointment. I thought it would be a bigger Bud but it was not. Recommended for those who don't enjoy the taste of beer.

This is the epitome of cheap/college beers. Horrible taste, but after one 16oz. you stop caring about taste. This is great for wanting to get plastered on a budget. Other than that, do your self a favor and pay a few cents more for a full flavored Budweiser.
