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).

Used for beer pong. Aroma is very sweet and chemically. Taste is the same with some disgusting artificial notes. Hard to drink at first, but it gets better. Not as bad as a .5. But not good. I guess you could say it gets the job done.

(24oz can thanks to mar) clear semi-pale yellow with good bubbles. Nose of shoe leather, apple, not much else. Taste of paper, butter, grain mash. Watery body with soft carbonation in the finish.

Natty ice. You gotta love it - if you are a frat boy or a derelict. Thanks Eric Kok for sharing so generously at the de molen borefts bier festival. (Wink, wink). Quite a contrast to the dark lord we also shared.

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!

Pours clear, pale gold with a large, sudsy,white head. Scent is the same as a KFC or rib joint wet-knap packet....no, really. Taste is not (quite) so bad.....malt, lemon and grains. However,it still makes you think you are imbibing some kind of ointment......a modern-day snake oil..... Makes you feel sort of dirty for drinking it. In Southern Indiana, we call these "Snatchies"...... Ponder that.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2010
24 oz can. Tasted as a part of an 18 beer Malt Liquor blind tasting. Pours a clear pale yellow body, one of the lightest in color of all tasted. Minimal to no head. The nose is very light, but itís actually pretty clean. The flavor is pretty clean and crisp as well with a short unoffensive finish. Light bodied and crisp with fizzy carbonation. This may have been one of the best among the bunch. Cheap, watery, and bland, but at least it wasnít offensive like many of the others.

Overall Impression: This "beer" (I put beer in quotes because itís insulting to the word beer to call this beer) is bad. Really bad. Really Really bad. You get the idea. We use to choose this over Natty Light and Natty in HS because at least it has a little more alcohol...
Only for drinking games and pounding, and only if you must.
