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.

I will admit it, I am biased against Ice beers.
I do not see the value in them unless you want to get drunk fast. And getting drunk is not the reason I drink beer.

Natural Ice is a below average American Lager.
Serve it cold and it is drinkable, but this is a beer that should be avoided.

Pours very clear yellow tinted water color with a white head that quickly disappears.

Smells like a beer i guess. Just a little sweet malt.

Taste is easy to drink for the alc, a bit of sweetness, corn.

Mouthfeel is easy drinking, probably over carbonated.

This beer is just a solid beer is you want to get drunk but not much else.
