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).

Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 6/20
Fatehunter (2518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Three fingers of head in a tulip glass, descent retention. Clear, light straw colored body. Smell is grainy with a hint of honey... and hint of some unidentifiable metallic type of smell. Taste is fairly bad: watery with a note of bitterness that despite its low profile manages to make the beer worse. Light body with moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty bad.

Had myself a whole case of Natty Ice sitting in the fridge for over a 2 years, so it was nice and aged when I cracked one open. Tasted decent enough I suppose

Sort of similar to Bud Ice, part flavorless and the added other part nasty/corrosive heat. All around headache inducing, one and wont ever have again.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2017 Poured into a vase-like shaped pilsner glass. Crisp sweetness, cereal and beer grains, quite smooth. Light carbonation. Overall medium-bodied, not too bold.

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

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2016
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.

Aggiebob (1048) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2016
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
