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).

Overall Impression: This "beer" (I put beer in quotes because it’s 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.

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.

Light yellow straw color with a foamy white head. Just saw Barry’s review and I think to my self, boah, how can I add anything else that he he has not already articulated? Well, I can’t so here’s 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.

Slightly shitty corn smell. Clear yellow, thin white head. Tart corn and malt flavor, but finishes soapy with noticeable alcohol. Blah.

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.

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

Oh boy, this smells and looks horrible. Just awful. I remember this nothingness taste from college beer pong. Thin and weak, nothing positive going for this, except it doesn’t taste like alcohol or give headaches.

Skyview (5543) - 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.

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.

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.
