Natural Ice is brewed with a blend of premium American-grown and imported hops and a combination of malt and corn that lends Natural Ice its delicate sweetness. It then undergoes Anheuser-Buschís exclusive ice-brewing process, which takes the beer to a temperature below freezing and leads to the formation of ice crystals which create its signature rich and smooth taste.

Characterized by its robust body, delicate sweetness and smooth, rich taste.

The introduction of Natural Ice provided the company with two brands in the value priced ice beer category (Busch Ice was also introduced in 1995).

The body has a light golden straw color with very good clarity. Its head is bright white and foamy. It builds up fast and thick before fading out quickly, leaving some bubbles around the edges of the glass. The aroma is very simple and typical of the style. There is a sweet grainy malt scent with lots of corn and rice adjunct notes and some far off grassy hops. Its flavor is similar to its aroma with a light sweet malt flavor that is full of grainy corn and rice. The hops add a light grassy flavor and some bitterness to the finish which ends quickly with a slightly corny aftertaste. It has a light body with a smooth watery texture and moderate carbonation. Overall it is light and easy to drink with a light price tag. Itís not bad for a cheap buzz although itís not a beer I would normally seek out.

Found on any collge campus in south Florida, this below average beer is made king in the hands of any underage drinker. This beer, when opened, smells as a urine soaked hallway on a hot afternoon, and, when poured looks as such urine. When sipped, hmm upon this first sip I am compelled to yell íCHUGí since the cheap and poorly brewed tatse lingers on the pallete and no one wants that any longer than is nescessary. The abv however, is without a doubt the focal point of the drinking experience. Overall the Natural Ice is easy on the wallet an heavier in the GRAVITY!!!

Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a moderate white head that disappears quickly. Nose is light, and thank god for that. I can get a little corn to it, but relatively little else. Taste is also light and slightly sweet, and makes me thankful I drink beer that actually has taste most of the time.

Other than having a higher abv for its style, there really isnít much to this beer.

25oz can. Pours a pale yellow, fizzy with minimal head. Aroma is just sweet, corn and adjuncts maybe? Flavor is sweet as hell- reminds me of the few malt liquors Iíve tried. Light bodied, sweet finish. Mostly inoffensive, but if you canít stand a beer thatís cotton candy sweet, stay away.

Natural ice is my go to cheap beer.... Because when the dust settles, it just reminds me of crazy parties and all the good parts of college.... Much like sometimes itís just fun to drink a 40 itís also fun to Sometimes drink 19 natty ices, and then throw up. What points it loses in flavor, it makes up for in fun....... And yeah so, thatís what I have to say.....

This is a good bad beer. That is to say, compared to craft beer, Natural Ice sucks. Compared to other bad generic beer, itís really good. Itís taste isnít half bad and it goes down extremely easy. Itíd not an amazing of a beer, but to get a 25oz can for a dollar and having it be 6% abv, itís pretty Damn good. This is my go to beer when Iím trying to be cheap.

Twenty five ounce can. LIght gold pour. Aroma of not much. Flavor is pretty bland. Carbonation is high and body is light. Non offensive and not as bad as I thought it would be. Just not too much to it.
