Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States
anheuser-busch.com

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Year-round

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: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

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 it's low profile manages to make the beer worse.
Light body with moderate carbonation.
Overall, pretty bad.

Anheuser Busch : Natural Ice

LOOK: Pale, straw yellow, small wispy head. Little lace. Actually has some retention. Appears like an American style pilsner, but falls short on so many levels.

SMELL: Spent grains, must, soiled diaper, corn.

TASTE: Corn, gassy yeast byproduct, mineral/sour note, creamed corn, vegetation, unbalancing bitterness as this finishes sweet and stale, almost off. Extremely watery and the flavor is not good.

FEEL: Light bodied, medium carbonated, watery, and forgettable.

OVERALL: This is not a good beer.
