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).

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2007
Bottled, sample, pasteurised. Pale yellow with fizzed white head, highly carbonated. Quite a sickly aroma, sweet with malt but quite revolting, Presumably a tasteless method to get alcohol into college kids, pretty awful and luckily just a sample of someone else’s beer?

24 oz can poured a clear yellow with a smal lasting white head. Aromas of bread dough and corn. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and light corn with a crisp watery finish.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Tall, 25 ounce can. Pours brilliantly clear yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is wet paper and faint corn, rice and Pils malt, maybe some dirty ice from thousands of years ago, oooohh, dinosaur ice. Flavor is chewed paper (spit ball contest anyone?) with light corn and rice notes, not much dinosaur dirty ice (but some) with a dry finish. I do not think hops came within 100 miles of this beer. Hops were far enough away that if you were allergic to hops, they would not even need to add allergen labels to this beer. Light body, watery and thin with light carbonation. Is there a point to this beer?

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 2006 Re-rate****Can... Smells and tastes pretty much like Busch Ice, but less offensive. Thin and fizzy. Corny and sweet. Bumping it up from a .9 though. ****Original Rating****Drank this straight from the bottle while tailgating before the 2003 WVU vs. PITT football game. I can only rate the flavor and palate. Not good! Who cares? Everyone knows this beer sucks. Plus, the Mountaineers won the game 52-31. A real defense-oriented backyard brawl!

24 ounce can. I hated Natty Light IN COLLEGE! We’ll see if this is any better at all. Pale straw yellow A mere whisper of a head. Boozy and slightly fruity corn aroma with some sawdust. Taste is an acrid graininess with faint corn notes. Really tart and offputting. The corn turns to creamed corn as it warms. I won’t say the taste is smooth. No way. Watery. Worse than Natty Light... this actually has flavor.

Can from a longago back log. Pours clear yellow with white head. Nose/taste of corn, grain, and tin can. Offensive.
