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).

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.

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.

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.

32 oz. bottle with a born on date of 4/18/13. Tasted blind alongside Coors Original and Busch Beer. This was the least fresh among the group, and it showed, yet still had more character than either of them. Especially hops. It pours a yellow color with a dissipating white head. The aroma is almost nonexistent with just a faint whiff of noble hops (possibly skunked). No sweetness or off aromas. The flavor is noticeably drier than either of the other two with much more noble hop character (even though it was a bit skunky). A little bit of malt and slightly fuller body than the others at 5.9%. Not too bad. I’ll look for a fresher bottle to put up against other Pale Lagers.

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.

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

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

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