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).

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.

kermis (9995) - Zeeman, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2012
Can shared thanks to Erickok. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of urinal cakes, nothing good. Flavour is terrible, I can’t say any more. This is just dreadful.

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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

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.

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

BVery (9515) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 24 oz can - another one I can generously share with my kitchen sink. Clear light gold pour with a decent white head that clings to the glass pretty good. I smell slightly rotten corn, and I taste slightly flavored water. Weak palate, even by malt liquor standards.
