COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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-Busch’s 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).

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.

25 oz can woo hoo thanks for the extra added ounce! Pour has a golden color with a thin cap of white head and good streaming carbonation visible in the glass. Aroma has grains, corn, and some sweetness. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation average. Flavor is lightly malted, grains, corn, and a fairly uneventful finish. I will say it was pretty smooth especially when icy cold.

Used to drink this a lot, as it was about $7 for a 12pk. Then one day it made me gag and I haven’t gone back. Very metallic tasting.

Go to college beer from 2002-2003. Twelve pack for $8 or less. Pours a straw yellow with huge white head. As if anyone ever poured this from the can in anything other than their mouth. Taste is a headache inducing grain nightmare. You can taste the residual alcohol and vomit.

I love the taste of this beer. It's a lower priced beer but overall good taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Seemed like an obligatory tick, as I only ever tried Natty Light during college. Pours gold with a large foamy white head that actually lasts longer than I expected. Aroma is faintly tap water. Taste is astringent corn and yuck. Tastes best straight from the can (after the third one or so), and best accompanies Dave Matthews Band and Gamecube.

12oz can (old notes)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just plain rank.

Like drinking liquid tinfoil. The only beer I’ve ever tasted that I simply can’t drink.

32 oz. bottle with a born on date of 4/18/13. Tasted blind alongside Coors Original and Busch Beer. This was the least fresh among the group, and it showed, yet still had more character than either of them. Especially hops. It pours a yellow color with a dissipating white head. The aroma is almost nonexistent with just a faint whiff of noble hops (possibly skunked). No sweetness or off aromas. The flavor is noticeably drier than either of the other two with much more noble hop character (even though it was a bit skunky). A little bit of malt and slightly fuller body than the others at 5.9%. Not too bad. I’ll look for a fresher bottle to put up against other Pale Lagers.
