Color is ok. Smell is corn and malt up front but a gross, putrid smell at the end, almost like old milk. Very unusual for ANY beer. Taste is awful. Like a mouthful of soda water flavored with barely any corn and very bitter. You get what you pay for.

If you’re trying to rate this beer like you would for any craft beer, you’re tripping balls. Natty Ice is my go to cheap beer, the biggest bang for your buck. I don’t know why you’d pay 10 bucks more for a 30 of bud over this. Natty tastes better and is cheaper. Poor man’s best friend. Natty gets me Ratty

Purchased on the 7th of January of 2019. In a 15 pack. Drank from the 12 ounce can. Light mouth feel you can definitely slam this beer. Beer snobs bother me because its all about top shelf beers. I'm blue collar and like to get boozed up. This is the beer i buy when I have a grill out or cook out whatever. I clear a 12 rack of this and I'm good to go. Its light it tastes typical to a bud product and ot goes down easy. I give it a 4.5 because it's cheap its a shotgun beer and will put you in the drunken stooper you want if thats your thing.

Look: Very, very pale yellow. About a finger of white head that quickly fizzes up and then disappears.

Smell: I had to go back for multiple sniffs just to try and smell anything! What I COULD smell was corn syrup mixed with wet dog. Or perhaps garbage.

Taste: A faint corn aftertaste. That's about it.

Mouthfeel: Watery.

Overall: Insipid and awful. Imagine growing up and thinking this is what beer is?

Its not bad, honestly, for an ice its one of the best around, it can't really be beat by many others. Low price, low calories, low carbs, a nice trend with a nice 5.9% abv. Not any specific taste in general, just a decent beer, medium carbonation ( be warned, it fades fast leaving you with a bland beer if you take too long to drink it!) and a lower-than-average foam amount. Could use more carbonation and foam, but other than that its not bad at all if you're looking for a cheap buzz.

I hit the wrong button and lost my review. So, let me summarize by saying this is a Malt Liquor that is made to be clean and non offensive at a very low price point. It has more flavor than Budweiser. If you drink high ABV craft beers you may find this a better beer than Bud. Good call.

Cheap strong beer that isn't good but not the worst either. The price makes it kinda worth it if your'e short on cash.

This had to be the worst beer I ever tried. I couldn`t finish one can. It sounded so good. Natural Ice. I thought of snow covered mountains and winter wonderlands. Lol. Instead of that, I thought of a long straw in a cesspool. I know some people that love it. They drank the rest of the 6 pack I bought.

12 oz. can poured into a pint glass.

L---Clear, pale yellow with a foamy head that faded immediately and left no lacing.

S---Sweet. Corn & chemicals.

T---This one is awful. After a couple of cans, I had to squeeze half a lemon into each beer just to be able to drink it. I suppose there was some sweet corn taste to it.

F---Light & watery, even with a relatively high ABV for an AAL. Carbonation was good.
