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).

My 1000th beer rated. I find this to be appropriate. For a few reasons. So first, itís a reminder that at the end of the day, you canít expect more from a beer than the flavor of beer. It has phenomenal qualities and I do think there is more to beer than beer (the social aspects, sharing, the experiences, be them streaking nude in the quad or sharing a quiet pint with a close friend at the local bar). Over the course of the last 999 beers, sometimes people will say things like "oh, this beer is disappointing, I thought it was the best" when referring to beers like Pliny or Westy 12, Heady topper, BCBS, etc. But thatís because they expect supernatural. Ultimately itís still just beer. There gets to a point where you canít really get more out of a beer so itís hard to really have your mind blown. For some people, theyíre called beer snobs, but when youíve had enough, your standards change. So itís been a little over 2 years and Iím at 1000 now. Some great more to come. Hopefully the best beer Iíll every taste I havenít tried yet, and maybe hasnít even been brewed yet. But thereís a lot of memories along the way, some great ones, great ones to come. On a related note, I considered cracking open a 2014 vintage Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout for this occasion. I decided on this instead. It seems AB-InBev was destined to get this rating either way. And at that, letís rate this bad boy. First off, thanks to my friend, Emile, for getting this for my birthday (over 4 months ago), youíre a swell pal. Canned, 25 oz ("The big one") probably from literally any gas station. Pour into a snifter. Pours poorly hydrated urine. surprisingly nice white head. Aroma is wet cardboard, rice, lemon. Better than I thought. Flavor is kinda lemony, itís beer. itís pale and not really filled with anything. Itís just beer, but hey, thatís why itís #1000. I donít have much to say beyond that. Cheers!

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Not a bad stand by Ice beer. For something that is decently priced I like it.

739ml the big one can. This just tastes like liquid corn tortillas, not offensive but not good.

Great beer for a really hot day. As long as you keep it ice cold. The beer doesnít taste half bad.

A great "lawnmower" beer. The íhead" is a white foamy color with a crisp finish and high drinkability.

Refrigerated 25 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass, served ice cold. Clear pale with small/medium white head. Aroma is corny, light body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is corny, some light grain, and hints of rice. Donít let this warm up.

A real dry bud, like they added some grain alcohol to bud Clear yellow real clear but weird light yellow. Why it gets decent appearance rating. Very carbonated like some water. No aroma no flavor.
