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).

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

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 (5269) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2008
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."

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2006 Sampling this again from the can. The aroma is sweatsocks and tomatoes. The taste has some slight potatoes with white bread. There is not much else going on here. Nothing offensive, itís just bland.

kramer (5108) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5102) - 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.

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

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).
