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).

Bottle. HGT Brew club tasting night. Not a fun tasting at all. This beer barely beat out Hamms as the worse beer at the event. Skunky, tin smell and taste. Pretty well tasted like the can it came in.

Can 25oz. A clear, pale golden beer with a nice creamy white head. Next to none aroma, some fruity notes and a vague malty touch. Some grass and pine cones too. There’s a faint bitterness in the flavor, as well as green apples, some pale malts and a generic fruityness. Thin on the palate, very low on carbonation level. Mostly water this one. 130811

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Fruity, mostly banana-like esters, dominate the nose. Kinda reminds me of banana Runts candy with the sweet sugariness also. Not much in the way of malt and no hops to speak of. I get a bit of Circus Peanuts as it warms. The flavor is even more boring than the nose. The banana-like thing is here also, but the sweetness up front is almost immediately drowned out by a watery impression. Super short on the finish because there’s not much flavor to begin with. It’s mostly a carbonic and watery. Overall, this brew is remarkably flavorless for the near 6% ABV. The carbonation is probably much to blame as you can almost feel it “scrubbing” the flavor off your tongue as you drink it. Over-carbonated “Light beer” type of feel.
