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).

Can Pours a yellow pale body with a 1 finger white head. Sweet metallic, crisp grainy flavor with corn and a thin watery body. Im a fan for the price and a simple macro lager.

At least it gets you drunk. Some people need a reason to drink. Buying this is enough for me.

This is nothing but an alcohol delivery system, pure & simple. It’s difficult to drink even when icy cold. I have to learn to politely say "No, thank you," when someone offeres me crap like this in their home.

Glad I didn’t 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.

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.

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.

Can, many thanks to Oakes. Pours the eerie neon glow typical of chemo-beer. Fast disappearing white head. Nothing "natural" about the appearance. Potently sweet aroma, although I have smelled some worse things. Creamed corn. Chemicals. Soft but fizzy mouthfeel. Bud-like metallic aftertaste. Does not taste as sweet as it smells. This might be one of the reasons some people claim "I don’t like beer."

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

As bad as they come. Why do college parties consist of this and every other shitty beer? At least it wasn't Keystone light... Pours the same sickening shade of off yellow the rest do. It also tastes just as bad. Add the "ice" thing and lower the rating even more. I don't mind regular Natty but this sucks!

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Sampled during Swig-a-Swill Guzzler in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma of golden grain malt, corn, and no detected hops. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, corn and some alcohol presence. Finish is very watery, slightly metallic with some corn aftertaste.
