Overview Natural Light is the best-selling sub-premium (read: cheap) beer in the United States, but you’re probably more likely to end up with one in hand if you ask for it by its frat-party nickname, Natty Light. Natural Ice’s distinction is that it’s the beer most commonly seen in the US in a 24-pack being hauled out of a package store with a lenient carding policy by a college freshman.

Flavors and aromas This had more flavor than we expected. There’s graham-cracker malt, and a faint touch of aroma hops. It’s not great, but at this price point, we’re not sure that matters—as long as you’re comfortable being spotted as a Natty Light drinker.
