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).

Light yellow straw color with a foamy white head. Just saw Barryís review and I think to my self, boah, how can I add anything else that he he has not already articulated? Well, I canít so hereís the normal, or shall I say "natural" song and dance. The bubblegum in my mouth mixes with the scent of my rubber gloves as the commode has backed up and the paper and remnants of corn from last nights supper must be cleaned. I work with haste and diligence to clear the mess, but it is hard to swallow. Mild sulfur enters the frey as I light a match and candle to help with the effervescent encopresis essence. The thin water, yet somewhat syrupy soup subside in the bowl. A sweet vegetable stew. I must now question the quaestuary qualities of a brewery which puts this in a near quart sized container.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a better head than some of the low quality brews. It also poured a medium head of fine white bubbles. It still has that low quality yellow color. It's taste is a little more palatable that Bud, but it smells the same.

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.

Ahhh, Natty Ice. Metal that has been liquified and thinned. Among the worst beverages ever conceived, price be damned.

altonbrownd (4611) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2009
Jan 1, 2009 Another popular canned beer back in the college days. As bad as Natural Light but a bit higher alcohol content. Nothing much to say for it now though. Watery and metallic-tasting.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - 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.

Poured gold with a fair head doesnít look evil. Chemical and paint aroma doesnít bode well. I thought all these low ratings were cruel but this does not taste good. Corn and alcohol flavour. Another one? I donít want the rest of this one.
