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).

I don't like this beer at all. I cannot give any rating above a 1, and I would give lower than that if I could.

shrubber85 (7554) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Can. Sweet grassy malt aroma. Light golden yellow color with little head. Sweet malt flavor - little body. Nothing offensive - okay if you’re looking for a cheap buzz - a better choice than Bud Light.

Pours clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt and floral. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Can pours clear pale gold with frothy short lived white head. Interesting light aroma pushing up floral and earthy hops where the earthiness reaches toward back alley slimy moldy dumpster. There’s also a sugariness in the background. The taste is prickly with carbonation helping toss up notes of sugary sweetness, lagery sweetness, some floral notes, a touch of corn and more slick chemical like sweetness.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 3, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Can. Poured gold with a white head. Aroma was reminded me of a public restroom. Flavor was sweet and maybe a slight bitterness with a bit of booze.

One of the foulest tasting beers out there, Natty Ice is pretty light and crams 5.9% alcohol in there. That makes it good for the lowest college budget concerned with the highest percentage for the least money. A means to an ends.

Radek Kliber (6390) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 17, 2009
can 710 ml
Appearance: crystal golden look with neatly poured large snowy head. Some lace shown. 3+
Nose: mild aroma of pale malt , dry alcohol with hint of hop. Not bad for canned macro lager.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. Sweet grainy base. Lightly watery yet its alcohol was fairly well covered for listed 6%. Very slight mineral hop character. Slight alcohol burn shown with time. It is what it aimed to be.

12oz can, offered by my friend David over spring break, who swears by this stuff. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad... And I think the "malt liquor" label is falsely applied here. He loved it for the smoothness, and it certainly has that going for it, and it wasn’t offensive... so how is a 1.0 average score warranted here? I even wanted to hate it, being the beer nerd of the group. Super clear pale yellow color, bubbles on side of glass.. Nice, thick foamy white head, leaving little lace. Smooth carbonation is slightly on the lighter side for an american macro-lager. Sort of savory, light salty taste. Neither good nor bad. Aroma is white bread. Light skunk, hint of zesty citrus peel. Actually... More enjoyable than I expected it to be

Ernest (6198) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is trace malt (cereal), hint of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic. One of the most odorless "beers" you'll find. Unfortunately, the flavor is laced with floor sweepings and flecks from the Terminator's skull. It's nearly peerless...as one of the worst beers in the world.
