This somehow splits the difference between Natty Ice and Natty Light. It tastes like a light version of Natty Ice, but heavier than Natty Light. There is no bitterness, only a cereal malt character.

Ok guys just hear me out on this one.
I donít know how to explain it but the Natty Daddy is one of the greatest beer achievements in history. When I was in college at Miami U these past few years I had one go-to brew; the Natty Daddy. Sold at my local Oxford, OH Speedway for $1.25 for a 25 Oz I would grab three of these bad boys and head home for a night of boozing and debauchery. After two years of solid drinking I fell in love.
The Aroma for other comparable high-ABV brews isnít even worth mentioning. The Natty Daddy doesnít smell overly metallic or sour like most other cheaper beers with an ABV around the same percentage. Smells cheap though, but is a bit sweet; obviously corn.
Appearance is normal, very yellow/clear like most other lagers and leaves a thin white head. Lacing is barely noticeable unless you drink like a champ (like me) and the constant/regular up and down motion adds bubbles to make lacing more noticeable.
Taste is great for someone who drinks cheap shit normally but probably pretty awful for a brew snob. Compared to anything else on the market thatís 8% itíll fair better than all competition; no joke. It tastes sour, slightly metallic, very corny but hey, itís cheap and isnít awful.
Overall the Natty Daddy is probably the best higher alcohol content tallboy on the market especially for the price. I havenít found any other lager that excels at doing the Natty Daddyís job; getting you trashed whilst not making you sick and saving you money. This will be a go-to brew for as long as I live.

So bad tasting. So bad smelling. So bad looking. Only good thing is high alcohol content and cheap price. Nasty Daddy.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
25oz can. Pours pale golden with extremely fizzy, rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is grainy and screams sweetness. Sweet, sweet, sweet flavor. Extremely unbalanced, but the point of this is to get blackout drunk as fast as possible at 8%. Lingering sweetness in the finish. $1.50 for this, plenty of drunk for the buck.

25 oz. can, thanks for the extra ounce. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention. Aroma is alcohol, grain and corn. Flavor is sweet corn and alcohol with a sweet finish. Medium body and light carbonation.

This isnít for drinking, this is for getting you drunk. Theyíre only like $1.80 at any gas station. It tastes like rubbing alcohol (at least how I imagine rubbing alcohol tastes) and doesnít sit too well in the stomach.

Natty Daddy., I am drinking one right now. Where do I start. First off I do enjoy my craft beers. Yet, I was raised on malt liqueur. This rating is for malt liqueurs. Not craft beer. Natty Daddy is one of the better Malts. If you have have high gravity, King Cobra or Steel Reserve; then a Natty Daddy will taste like a bud light with an 8 percent kick. It is no where near as potent tasting as most Malt Liqueurs, I was surprised it had 8 percent, because you would never know it did. Now by saying this, I am not saying this is a beer you drink after 18 holes of golf. This is a beer that you drink when you are looking for 1 thing and that is a buzz. 2 Daddies will get you a great sleeping buzz. 3 will get you toasted. 4 will knock you the hell out. I enjoy a malt liqueur about once a week, and this Malt has earned a place in my "Take care of business" file.

Pounder: Lemon pledge, corn smell. Clear yellow, thick head, nice lacing. Little flavor save for some mild wood nostes and a mild acetone finish. I donít need to drink beer this badly.

To start with, I am rating this beer in its segment, and not as compared to craft brews and other beers that cost substantially more. Natty Daddy is one of the best malt liquors available. Ever had Steel Reserve? Yeah, that junk is nasty. This beer is completely inoffensive, and packs an 8% punch. The alcohol is relatively difficult to perceive, and thatís surprising in this segment. The beer pours a slightly darker straw color that the baby Natural Light. Thatís also surprising for the segment. The beer has a flavor, though itís difficult to describe exactly what it tastes like - I detect a lot of corn in the aroma, which substantially influences the flavor. As stated, itís inoffensive, which in the malt liquor category, means that this beer tastes pretty good. From a marketing perspective, AB should have chosen a better name - "Natty Daddy" is a fad type name that will quickly fade and obviously suggests cheapness. I suggest that AB should go ahead and commit to a more serious branding for this product because this recipe has the potential to turn into a legacy and stay a while. Natural Premium. Natural Extra. Something simple yet more serious. This beer is definitely meant to provide a cheap buzz - itís only sold in 25 ounce cans - and it succeeds in its mission while providing a decent flavor. Itís completely worth its price tag. A little more work and this beer could turn into a lasting segment of the Natural line.
