Notes/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.

This is by far the worst beer I have tasted in my life.

A - The design on the can itself looks extremely cheap and manufactured. No creativity, no class. Since it's unlikely you'll find anyone drinking this in anything but an aluminum can, I won't bother pouring it into a glass. Straight from the can like Anheuser-Busch intended.

S - The "beer" smells stale and sweet.

T - Stale, metallic goat piss. No offense to goats.

Unless you hate your taste buds, you're going to want to bring the temperature to just above freezing temperature. Drinking this anywhere near room temperature will induce gagging.

M - I'm kind of paranoid that this is actual goat piss now, so it's starting to feel like goat piss in my mouth. There's a very acidic burn in my mouth, but that might be due to my gag reflex.

D - No drinkability whatsoever. If you want a hangover (before you even fall asleep) and diarrhea, this is your medicine of choice.

There are no redeeming qualities here except for rock bottom price to get drunk on the cheap.
