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.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Super pale in color, a very light straw color. There was a lot of head initially that faded quickly.
The aroma is very faint, probably a good thing, but mild corn is barely there.
The flavors smell like years old hops, corn husks, paper, alcohol is noticable which is surprising since it is under 6%.
mouthfeel is a bit slimy and slick in texture.

Chug it bro!

Pours a pale golden yellow with a thin layer of fizzy white head that has decent retention. The nose is sweet, corny, grainy. The taste is sweet, corny, grainy, watery. The mouthfeel is crisp, very light, and ultra thin.

This is a foul beer. I'm not sure how we drank this by the keg in college. It's too sweet and grainy. There's no hop character. It's bland, one-dimensional, and thin. Pass.
