2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
24 fl. oz. can stamped 293-NB80. It pours like an American Pale Lager with its yellow color and high, bubbly carbonation that wastes no time fading away. The aroma almost has a slight fruitiness at first but on second whiff it is closer to standard barley grains, some thin yeast, and crispy hops. Some alcohol bite but not an obnoxious one. The texture is medium which breaks down on my tongue quickly just like the disappearing head. The taste is very typical to the malt liquor style with a pucker-up bite at the end without the aftertaste. Okay, so it is not a craft beer but for the style it is rather tolerable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Natty Daddy has a thick, white head and a clear, golden appearance, with a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is a sharp, sweet, corn husk smell, and the taste is sweet, yet not overly so, and one picks up grain, a nice hop bitterness at the end, and there is a mild alcohol under-taste. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Natty Daddy finishes pretty crisp, clean, refreshing, and easy drinking. I can see how this could get someone in trouble. Overall, this is a winner for Anheuser-Busch. RJT

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
24oz can poured into glass. Clear yellow, thin fizzy white head. Corn, cheap grain, a little pissy, and a little sweet. But I think it is fairly drinkable for an 8% malt liquor. I may drink it again.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This one goes out to the sponge named will, this one goes out to the sponge that threw up twice, a simple prop to occupy my liver. This one goes out to the sponge named will!
Served very very cold in a tulip.
The beer pours a very pale golden color with a big tight white head.
The aroma is not unlike corn or gasoline, but is not as pungent as either. There are some light tortilla and alcohol aromas in there. It doesnít smell clean bit it doesnít smell like the super-dirty nastyass malt liquor I was expecting.
Iím guessing this is going to get lotís and lots more offensive as it warms, itís pretty damned cold at the moment having been in the freezer of my mini fridge for the last week or so. Either way itís corny and has a creamed corn sweetness, some mild alcohol that tastes really nasty in the finish. Some of that cooked tomato is becoming more pronounced as it warms.
I donít know what to say other than this is a fairly successful go at a high gravity malt liquor.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2011 24 oz can. When you see a big ass can named Natty Daddy how can you pass it up? It was irresistible. Pours clear deep gold with a large off-white head with pretty good retention. When it falls after a few minutes it leaves a skiff of foam; it even leaves a little lace. Aroma is corny, metal, chemicals, SweeTarts. Taste starts out a bit sweet, turns a little bitter then ends tart and dry. Alcohol is noticeable. Body is way thin, carbonation is low for the style. Itís really bad, but itís not the trainwreck I was expecting. I have had worse.

Well shit, another one of these awesome drainpours. Good comedy at the Black Friday tasting. But pretty god awful. Puke in a can...or at least a puke waiting to happen.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Picked up a tall boy in obx. Didnít expect much, but this was a very pleasant surprise! As far as malt liquors go, this REALLY wasnít all that bad. Clear golden yellow pour with large white fizzy white head. Aroma was fairly grainy, and while not horribly offensive, it was the least appealing thing about this brew. Flavor was actually quite decent for what it was, and not nearly as grainy as the nose had lead me to believe. A little sweeter and less watery as compared side by side to regular natty light. Iíd totally drink this again if I had to.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Chevron gas station/min-mart (thanks for the tip drowland!) somewhat on the way home from work - 24 oz can. Pours a very faint golden with a pithy white head that leaves just a tad bit of lacing. Aroma leaves a lot to be desired - wet paper bag soaked in alcohol, some brief pepper notes, a hint of rotten cabbage. Flavor is typical fusel alcohol induced malt liquor - lots of corn, hint of honey sweetness, a bit of eraser-like rubber. Mouthfeel is harsh. Actually better than expected and I foresee the can going through some design changes to give it more street cred.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
11/21/11. 24oz gem of a can found at a gas station. Clear medium-golden pour, about like light apple juice, under a small khaki head thatís gone instantly. Surprisingly light aroma of sweet cream, creamed corn, apples, and fusel alcohols. Much more disturbing flavor... sweet cream and creamed corn at first followed by bitter, fusel alcohols and cheap, pale malts. Basically this tastes like Natty Light with a shot of vodka poured into it. Horrible.
