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-Buschs 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).

Cut and paste all these mass produced beers would have a hard time telling any of them apart

Really truly, not horrible. What you would expect from an American macro, but lacks any heavy off-flavors. Sure, its corny, but its not offensive. In fact theres some residual sugars here that lend it some body. Pours clear light golden with a thick white rocky head. Plenty of lace. Nose is dusty with a hint of grassy hops. Somewhat watery with a clean quick fading, lightly grassy finish.

Great beer to drink fast! Not the best beer in the world but one of the best alcohol to calorie ratios

Aroma - is extremely faint fruitiness. Appearance - has a clean pale gold, with some steady nucleation. The head is around 1 1/2" and white, and fades out into a thin layer of film. Taste - is very mild. Slight fruitiness, there is a very faint whisper of malt and some corn, maybe one kernel in the batch. Really, there isnt much to taste. Its rather blank to be honest. Its not offensive. Palate - light body, smooth texture, but on the thin side, carbonation is lively, the finish is fairly neutral. This beer is boring, but definitely not offensive in any way. Im not sure a single hop was harmed in the making of this beverage.

25 oz can. It poured a pale gold color with a nice white head that quickly dissipated. The aroma and taste was sweet corn. Very light bodied - watery. Typical major brewery offering.

Out of a quart bottle. Creamed corn and metalic fruit aroma. Thin bodied, watery, metalic and without any aftertaste

Originally rated on 9/16/08. Another sub par beer from AB and lower end even for the ice style beers. A inexpensive hangover for the underage/ dead broke crowd. Glad i dont buy this stuff anymore.

This beer makes me Sad. There is nothing redeemable about drinking this. There is nothing good in this can...it is pure bum alcohal developed for alcohalics that spend their days beating their kids and going to AA meetings. It tastes like a used hookers underwear put into a can and fermented. How did we as people offend God so much that this was created.You will have a headache after drinking this and will feel like a sleaze ball when you do. It tastes like a skunks butt after fermenting on the side of the road for thirteen days in the hot sun. Steel reserve is the only thing that brings my blood to boil out in hatred of my fellow man. The End...Review over. Dont spend your money on it unless you want cirrosis of the liver.

My 1000th beer rated. I find this to be appropriate. For a few reasons. So first, its a reminder that at the end of the day, you cant 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 thats because they expect supernatural. Ultimately its still just beer. There gets to a point where you cant really get more out of a beer so its hard to really have your mind blown. For some people, theyre called beer snobs, but when youve had enough, your standards change. So its been a little over 2 years and Im at 1000 now. Some great more to come. Hopefully the best beer Ill every taste I havent tried yet, and maybe hasnt even been brewed yet. But theres 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, lets rate this bad boy. First off, thanks to my friend, Emile, for getting this for my birthday (over 4 months ago), youre 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, its beer. its pale and not really filled with anything. Its just beer, but hey, thats why its #1000. I dont have much to say beyond that. Cheers!

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