Busch Ice brewed by Anheuser-Busch pours out a nice amber color. This brew has a small white head that goes away fast. Busch Ice looks like an american style lager. This brew dose not look like most Ice beers out on the market. Most of them are a darker amber color. The smell is the same as any american style lager beer. The smell is a strong with alcohol but not bad. The taste is smooth for being 5.9 ABV. This is one Ice brew that goes down like a regular american style beer. Busch Ice is not as sweet as Busch, it has a more bitter taste. Not too bitter to make a bad taste. The mouth feel is nice and crisp and refreshing. Overall for being an ICE Beer I giving this beer a 4 out 5. I will get this brew again.

I have a hard time with the large number of "1" ratings for this beer. I'm not going to do a A-S-T-M-O type review since this stuff will mostly be drank out of the can anyway.

This is a perfectly acceptable "Ice" style beer. I poured a little in a glass and as expected it was pale yellow with fleeting head. The smell and taste are actually quite neutral. The mouthfeel is pleasant due to a moderate level of carbonation. Even several minutes after finishing a 24 ounce can I still have a pleasant after taste.

There is a multitude of malt beverages that make this stuff look like a world class beer which makes me wonder how anyone can rate it a "1".

This is a drinkable, 5.9 class ice beer. No - it's not world class but it's hardly bottom of the barrel either.
