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).

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2006
(Can 35,5 cl) Clear, pale pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Aroma of brewing cereals. Rather light-bodied with a vague, malty feel, some corn in there. Absolutely no bitterness. 010406

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
Canned, thanks Bolagshataren for this gem! Pale yellow, minimal head. Fruity vegetable aroma. Sweet amd syrupy, sticky and unfirm. Alcohol is evident already at 4.2%, but bitterness can’t be found. Compares infavourably to most third world lagers.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
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

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2008
Golden-straw colour with a thick, artificially-stabilized head. The carbonation appears soft and abundant. Metallic, grainy nose has slight acetaldehyde and hop that is heavily influenced by something unholy. Yes, that is a technical "beer judge" term. Sweet flavour, kind of tart, very grainy with all kinds of acetaldehyde and some vague hop. Thin, sour, unionmade finish.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2010
(24oz can, courtesy of mar) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of corn, salt water taffy, and mustiness. Flavor of corn, cereal, and minerals with a watery finish.

jcwattsrugger (11083) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2008
12 oz can-pours a dissipating white head and yellow/pale yellow color. Aroma is at first sulfur, then some grain, sweet light malt/corn, some earthy hops. Taste is grain…, finish is metallic/some funk. No Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for sharing.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 3, 2007
I can hardly get any aroma. It is more than air, but not much. Thin gold color with a nice white head that attempts lacing. It starts with something, could be very light malt, there’s something sweet in there. The mouthfeel is light to medium. The finish is kind of herbal, if it is hop, it has not got much bitter in it. Kind of a ghastly ending.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 19, 2010
A: The pour is a crystal clear yellow color with a big white head that is gone before it’s arrived. S: This beer smells like Nebraska. Corn, corn, and more corn. And then some offensive aromas of alcohol, urine, and grass. Actually, that’s not fair, sorry Nebraska. T: An intense alcohol, corn, and grain flavor to this beer. Just bad. It’s no wonder this beer was only used for drinking games that involved chugging and "served" ice cold. I can barely choke this down. M: Light, thin, watery, and fizzy just about sums up our mouthfeel. D: This stuff is probably the worst of the adjunct lagers. At least most of them are not so blatantly offensive.
