In my close friends quest (hey Oscar) to have me kill my tongue he also provided Bud Ice. I don't have the best or perhaps even good taste... but I know my dislike of this and Keystone is more than justified.
Pours almost as clear as distilled water if not just as clear. Bleached white pourous head that disappeared between blinks. Slightly sweet smell perhaps but really so faint I'd have to spend more time around it and I won't. Tasted like wet plain rice and just barely that. Seriously, take some rice and boild it without salt or anything. Put it in the middle of a teaspoon for your texture test and this is the same taste. I know rice. :-D
Very plain on the tongue and drinks just like water should. Err.

Appearance I was surprised to see a nice head cover the clear yellow body.
Smell Grain and alcohol.
Taste This is an odd brew. I can kind of taste The Original in there, but the flavors arent as crisp and that traditional Bud sweetness is gone from the finish.
Mouthfeel Carbonation is too light to help this one along.
Sinkability Its not bad, but inferior to The Bud sans ice.
Comments Sorry for the short review, but this one was uninspiring to say the least, causing a severe case of writers block. I dont know what to say it was blah.

This is easily the most drinkable ice beer I have ever had. It did not have much flavor to srart out with other than grain and corn, but the taste was smoothe and not to intrusive. This is definantly a beer to get wasted on and not to seriously drink. Bud dry is much better as far as an AB beer goes. But if I were you, I'd stick to the Sierra Nevada's or Stone's of the world if you want new exciting beers! Cheerz

this beer tastes bad, but bad taste coupled with memories make for a truely heinous beer. this beer is yellower than the darkest piss i ever seen. this beer has but 1 purpose, to get you drunk the fastest, and leave you hung over like ted kennedy. the taste is there and then it's not but when it is there it's not good. this visions of my friends brother uninating in public, shouting racial slurs, threatening to kill people, shooting fireworks at buildings, engaging in rediculos conversation and making statements that would make president clinton blush have tainted my feelings about this beer even moreso than the bad flavor, stupid bottle can.

A- Very light straw yellow with a very thin oily white film of a head. Looks really watery with lots of carbonation bubbles but at least there is a bit of lacing.
S- Weak sugary pale malt with a little bit of canned corn and alcohol underneath. The canned corn is a little off putting but its about what I expected.
T- Fairly weak but nothing overly bad, tastes like water with a little bit of light lager sweetness which is a bit of malt and a bit of adjuncts.
M- This is one of the worst feeling beer I've ever had, extremely thin and watery with annoyingly high carbonation. It feels like tonic water only thinner.
D- This beer isn't awful and I could certainly have a few but it is not what I would choose to go back for.

Presentation: 12 oz red, white and blue coloured can with a “Born on date” on the bottom. “Ice Brewed” on the label.
Appearance: Straw color with a white head that dissipates like cheap root beer, big bubbled carbonation loses a fighting battle to keep the head.
Smell: Clean, clean and clean. Too clean, a vague cooked cereal grain aroma and that is about it.
Taste: Oddly placed light to medium body, very crisp though when it doubles with the grain flavours it becomes a bit harsh. Hop bitterness is two dimensional with absolutely no flavour at all. Slight sweetness is noticeable perhaps from the alcohol or some residual sweetness that lost its way. The harsh grain seems to linger for a while but fades quickly as soon as the beer dries up leaving an almost immaculate finish.
Notes: Somewhat hard to coax down, there are better and easier drinking American Ice beers out there. Some breweries should stick with what they do best and some beer drinkers should stick to what they can drink without making a face.
