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-Buschís 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).

Can. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of apple peel and possibly some malt. Flavor is pear and some fruitiness with a hint of malt. Thin body, average carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2010 Like Natty Light, Ice is very easy to consume. What makes this beer also very appealing is its low price/higher alcohol content. However compared to any other beer this tastes like shit.

Ernest (7164) - 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.

PorterPounder (6986) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Glad I didnít go with the valu-pak 24 oz and just plunked down .85 for 16 ozer. Clear as a mountain stream and tastes about the same.

Radek Kliber (6937) - 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.

Itís not that great of a beverage, but for a Natural (brand) itís a lot better than I thought it would be (as in itíll get you drunk a lot faster).

onceblind (6696) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2011
I expected NO flavor...what I got was gag-inducing bad flavor. The "people" who "brew" this should be ashamed. Smelled like orange juice that sat next to a basement radiator too long. Tasted metallic, slightly oily with a tinge of mildewy orange. Didnít even have the decency to be overly carbonated so the bubbles could scrub my palate.

can, thanks to mar, bubbly white foam with a cheesy aroma and fatty fruit flavors, my last style

FROTHINGSLOSH (6381) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Sampled from a 24 oz can this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a huge soapy white head that faded quickly but left some lacing. The aroma is pure sweet corn syrup. The flavor dry, spicy and a touch corny. The finish is long, dry and peppery. Medium body. Not bad for what it is.

Braudog (6198) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2005
As expected, a golden beer with big but quickly dying white sudsy head. Smooth with a hint of the higher alcohol than mainliners ... kinda like a mix between Bud and Old English 800. Highly recommended for the college crowd just looking for the buzz without the really heinous syrupiness of the malt liquors.
