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).

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.

I’ve been on macro lager kick recently and this is the worst so far. I don’t mind beers that are sweet but this is sweetness on top of a beer whose flavor is mediocre to begin with.

The Aroma of this beer is so so.The appearance of it is pretty cool.The Flavor is sort of tasteless. The Palate is pretty damn nasty though.My overall impression of Natural Ice is it's a cheap strong alcohol content beer.A really good beer for people with little money who want to get really f'd up.

Golden blond coloured, lots of carbonation and a medium white head. Special, light fruity sweet hinted with a very short hoppy hint. Medium palate. Finish is light bitter sweet and short hoppy sweet ending. Medium one.

The color is normal pale yellow malt liquor/pale lager mass-produced brew. Has a mild sour corn like taste. Surprisingly it doesn’t linger long so it’s not too bad. I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way for this one. Just barely drinkable and would be passable if your broke and need a good buzz.

24oz can - pours pale yellow with white head. Flavor is corn and somewhat malty. Taste is sweet. light to medium body with thin to sticky texture. Light metallic aftertaste. Burpy! Better than I remember it.

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.

let me tell you a little about what i like to call nattie ice. it may not be as popular or as good tasting as ur fancy smanchy beers. but by heck it gets the job done. it is an execellent beer pong beer and flows nicley into a 16oz red plastic cup and if that is not good enough for you i dont know what is. in the immortal words of dave chidyllo, "if nattie ice were a woman i might actually get some"
