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).

(Revised from 2007 rating.) This one is pretty rough. Pours a pale piss gold with a lot of carbonation and a white head. Plenty of corn, sweet malts, metal, straw, wet grass - one that you kind of have to choke down. But it got the job done in college, offering a 5.9% boost for the lowest price per ounce. So I guess it has some value.

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.

24 oz. can that I only had a little bit of from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a pale straw yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma and flavor is surprisingly boozy with the typical corn notes, sawdust, nasty graininess. Just no reason for this unless a macro drinker is trying to get there faster.

Can. Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is lightly sweet malt with a note of corn. Watery body. Flavor is cereal grain. Better than Natty Light, but just barely.

Nastiness in a can. Up there with some of the worst ever. Absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever.

My 10th malt liquor - hurray! A sweet, dirty, metallic mess. Fusel, corn, vomit, and acid. I think I’ll pass in the future.

Ernest (6905) - 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.
