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-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).

Yes there are better tasting beers out there. Yes there are more expensive beers out there. But Iíll tell ya Iíve been drinking this "piss" for years now and good luck finding a beer thatíll get you screwed right up for as cheap as this beer does. You all talk like your beer experts and talk about the body, the taste, the head, etc. I understand that, I love beer myself but if you canít handle a beer that donít taste like roses than go drink some wine. Beer is piss no matter how you look at or love it, some just taste a little better. And usually the ones that do taste better take an extra six cans to get the job done. Iíll stick with my "nasty" ass natty ice, you go right ahead and keep pissing your money away for something that only tastes better till the third one. Have fun with that.

MALT LIKKA MAYHEM!!! Consumed at home while a hungry cat stared at my plate of Swedish gravlax. Fuck off, youíll just have to starve! Pours apple juicy yellow with a quickly-diminishing snowy white bubbly ring. Aromas of pistachios, vitamins, tin, and and malt extract. Tastes exactly the same. Ends, however, with limes, yeast and a bit of heat.

Can-first couple of sips werenít too bad, again right after chores I was thirsty and it didnít look as bad as Busch light, but why is it that the glass is only half empty after 40 minutes? Time to move on to something else.

Clear yellow gold with white lacing. Musky, wet cereal smell. Ohhh...thatís terrible! Tastes like watery wet Cheerios covered with Splenda...with a lovely aftertaste of aluminum can. Gross.

The worst beer on planet Earth. Youíre better off drinking rubbing alcohol.

I held off trying this for years. Had it out of a 22 oz. bottle. Cannot comment on the color and head and those factors are really insignificant to judging this style of beer. What I can say is that it has some body, is smooth, and has just enough hop to notice and make it pass for a lager rather than the over-sweet profile of most malt liquors. I thought it was a better brew than Budweiser, and it aided me in taking a refreshing nap.

24oz can from gas station in Virginia. Pours clear straw. Low carbonation. Denser white head settles down quickly. Little lacing. Nose is cinnamon apples. Taste is awful papery oatmeal water. Gritty, corn flakes. Very soapy plus butter. Just the nadir of macro taste.

Fatehunter (1092) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Three fingers of head in a tulip glass, descent retention. Clear, light straw colored body. Smell is grainy with a hint of honey... and hint of some unidentifiable metallic type of smell. Taste is fairly bad: watery with a note of bitterness that despite itís low profile manages to make the beer worse. Light body with moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty bad.
