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).

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 (1399) - 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.

HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Huge bottle, I think it was 40 oz which is more than a liter. Looks like gasoline, moderate head than dies a quick death. Aroma is corn chips and apple juice. Very little taste up front, then corn, then terrible chemical aftertaste. Body is watery and thin, totally forced carbonation. Overall, awful.

The aroma is light with a hint of sweet, the taste is very palatable again with a lightly sweet taste you will not get a bitter beer face from this beer, has a beautiful light amber color that adds a visual delight to the drinking experience.

32-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 14, 2012 (purchased at a 7/11 for $2.49 on Nov. 14, 2012). Pale clear with less than one finger of white head that dissipated almost immediately. OK retention on the sides, hardly any on the top. Smelled a sharp whiff of malty alcohol up front. That gave way to a puky pungent follow. Also got corn, honey, cereal and grass. Tasted a bit similar to the nose, but with a bad lingering aftertaste. Got bread, hay, cereal, biscuit and corn. Lots of disgusting faces. Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-below average carbonation. Abrupt watery finish. Iíve had this plenty of times, but this was the first time I rated it. It was actually a bit better than I remember it and I still swear by Natty Light for my cheap beer. The ratings, however, didnít come out to well, even when considering the style. It is funny that I used to think that ďiceĒ beers were so strong.
