Notes/Commercial Description:
Anheuser-Busch’s exclusive ice-brewing process takes the beer to a temperature below freezing, which leads to the formation of ice crystals in the finishing process that gives Bud Ice its rich, smooth taste.

Bud Ice

Look: Pale yellow in color, fizzy , over carbonated lager.

Smell: Adjunct grainy smell with sweet corn and cooked veggie notes coming out.

Taste: Sweet corn, rice and stale hop flavor. Somewhat crisp but near cloying sweetness is king here. The rest is just a hodgepodge of spent grains, generic hops, and alcohol.

Overall: Malt liquor lite, this has all the downfalls of cheap malt liquor, without the benefit of high abv.
