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).

Cantacular.
Appearance: Iím pretty shocked at how good this beer looks. The body is crystal clear and the head is tall and dense with, surprisingly, good retention. If nothing else, this is a good looking lager.
Aroma: Sweet corn with a touch of floral and toasted dryness. Almost completely dominated by corn though.
Taste: Oh boy, completely dominated by sweet adjunct lager flavor. I guess I was thrown off by the not completely crap aroma. Thereís some spice on the finish, but boy this is going to be hard to drink.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a great looking lager and the aroma isnít awful. In-fact Iím surprised that there are some hops here. Thatís where the good in this beer ends.

The best thing I can say about this beer is that itís made by the people who bought Goose Island.

I will give this a little higher than Natty Lite mainly b/c of the alcohol content.

The smell is water, floral, not much, done grain, skunk. The look is clear, white head, and golden in color. The taste is corn, grains, floral, weak, and eh.

Allegedly the third worst beer available, and I am unlikely to rate the other two. I have to rate this due to its inspiring a college-drunk nickname for a local hero/choker. Certainly anyone who looks will find more offensive stuff than this...itís just so... insubstantial. Aroma could be old cereal grains and frozen cream of corn, although maybe it isnít. Flavor might be frozen sugar cubes and metallic stale malts. Really no different than other pissy ice beers, and too light to be a true malt liquor. Just a strong cheapo lager here. A very easy too drink one at that.

It got me feeling nice faster than anything else. Didnít notice taste after the second can. Iíd definitely drink it again.

12oz can. No aroma/decent head. Taste is watery and unpleasant. As was the headache the next day!

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.
