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).

For an inexpensive hastily produced brew it's not bad. i sure couldn't make thousands of dollars with the brew Ii would produce. kudos to A/B for mixin up a batch of brew for us low budget beer mongers.

Natural Ice is good stuff. Much better than many of the other A-B products. Has as much alcohol as many malt liquors, but a much more pleasant taste and presentation. This is a crisp, consistently good brew. So, what if itís less expensive? Itís very drinkable, especially from the brown bottles. Itís always on my list. Goes well with dinner. RJT

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma - :Almost non-existent, has a slight grain aroma. Appearance- A nice clear light yellowcolor with a large white head Taste - Mostly a grain flavor with an alcohol aftertaste Palate- A thin bodied brew with light carbonation. Overall - A bargain priced beer that is meant to be quaffed in large quantities. It is not bad and for the style of beer it is one of the better ones out there.

Natural Ice is the most consistent low cost, full strength beer available. It has better flavor than run of the mill domestic beers. Donít compare it to Sierra Nevada Ale or Newcastle Brown. Best served with a dram of quality Single Malt. Denise & Jan like it! More bang for the buck.

Better than natty light, due to the 5.9%. Cheap and gets you wasted, but not as tasty as keystone ice.

This beer is not bad for being very cheap and having a high alcohol percentage.
