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).

Tall boy can in Michigan for 99 cents. Light color, light aroma, little body and light flavor. Wet cold alcohol with little character. Proof that you get what you pay for.

imdownthepub (10140) - 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.

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!

Can @ the First Annual Rocky Mountain Malt Liquor Tasting. Light yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, adjunct, shitty shit aroma. Watery, corny, fusel alcohol, poop flavor. Fuck you.

12 oz can. It feels like 100 degrees here and this looked like it would taste cold. Straw coloured beer, white head. Smells like corn flakes Flavour matches the aroma. Fizzy palate, corn and a short but not unclean finish. It’s completely uninteresting, but I’ve had much worse.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
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.

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.
