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).

A slightly less watered down version of light but at least has a higher alchohol content if you want to get drunk cheap.

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.

This is a good bad beer. That is to say, compared to craft beer, Natural Ice sucks. Compared to other bad generic beer, it’s really good. It’s taste isn’t half bad and it goes down extremely easy. It’d not an amazing of a beer, but to get a 25oz can for a dollar and having it be 6% abv, it’s pretty Damn good. This is my go to beer when I’m trying to be cheap.

MALT LIKKA MAYHEM!!! Consumed at home while a hungry cat stared at my plate of Swedish gravlax. Fuck off, you’ll just have to starve! Pours apple juicy yellow with a quickly-diminishing snowy white bubbly ring. Aromas of pistachios, vitamins, tin, and and malt extract. Tastes exactly the same. Ends, however, with limes, yeast and a bit of heat.

Fruity, mostly banana-like esters, dominate the nose. Kinda reminds me of banana Runts candy with the sweet sugariness also. Not much in the way of malt and no hops to speak of. I get a bit of Circus Peanuts as it warms. The flavor is even more boring than the nose. The banana-like thing is here also, but the sweetness up front is almost immediately drowned out by a watery impression. Super short on the finish because there’s not much flavor to begin with. It’s mostly a carbonic and watery. Overall, this brew is remarkably flavorless for the near 6% ABV. The carbonation is probably much to blame as you can almost feel it “scrubbing” the flavor off your tongue as you drink it. Over-carbonated “Light beer” type of feel.
