I love the Boh, plain and simple! Natty Boh, please don't go, I'll drive to and fro, so you can go, into my stomach below! A wonderful beverage from America's past that has surpassed potential extinction and emerged unscathed to "The Bright Side."

Ahhh Natty Boh - my Hometown Hero.

Enjoyed this out of a pint glass at home in Baltimore, MD.

A: Golden with a thin white head that quickly clears.

S: Not much aroma here. Faint scent of grains and malt.

T: Corn, malt, and mild hops.

M: Medium carbonation, not too bad, not too good

O: Refreshing yet gritty, it's Baltimore in a can. Nuff said.

Out of a can (this retro six-pack cost me only $3.50!) this beer was a clear golden color with one finger of white head. The retention of the head was not bad and it left scattered lacing. The aroma was of pilsner malt, corn and a hint of sweet malt. The flavors were very similar but very drinkable for a macro-beer. I tasted mostly pale malt and corn with a bit of lingering sugar that helped to ‘fill it out’. The body was medium, the carbonation appropriate and the mouthfeel good. Simple but solid. Upon reflection I concluded that this bargain beer had some real substance and better than almost all of its competition, in my opinion.

Enjoyed this beer out of a pint glass at Big Fish Grille in Crofton, Maryland. Our server talked me into it saying it was a Baltimore Legend.

A: Golden brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates and leaves virtually no head.

S: Not much aroma here. Faint scent of grains and malt.

T: Tastes like Budweiser only a little bit better. Flavors of grain, malt, and mild hops.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Baltimore Legend? Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it – but it was only a step above on a Budweiser.

A classic. A necessity for anyone visiting downtown Baltimore for the first time. Cannot beat Natty Boh when you are looking for a satisfying, cheap beer in Maryland. While it will not please those who strictly drink craft beers, I will take a Natty Boh over any other similar Macrolager any day of the week.

Poured this Baltimore legend from a can into a regular pint glass. I'm a generation removed from Baltimore, so I can at least claim a little nostalgic place for Mr. Boh. By the way, this is graded to style.

A - Straw/blonde color. A little bubbly, but light head retention and thin-looking. Considering this is an adjunct lager, it looks like it should.

S - Yeast, a little sweet in the nose. A pleasant smell for this type of lager

T - Light malts, some adjunct (corn perhaps?). Very mild and pleasant flavors, though with just a tinge of bitterness in the finish (which is actually quite nice).

M - Thin-bodied and refreshing. Carbonation level is fine and a pleasant aftertaste.

O - For what it is, Natty Boh is one of my favorite cheap adjuncts. It's refreshing and doesn't have any off flavors to it. As long as you keep the style in mind, Natty Boh is definitely worth your time. Too bad I can't get it in VA (though MD is a short drive), but Natty Boh will be my go-to when I want a lawnmower beer.

Every big city has one; their own cheap, plentiful, shamelessly promoted cheap beer. Baltimore has Natty Boh. As cheap beers go, this is one of the better ones out there. A nice crispness to the beer and some actual hops detected while you drink it, you can pick up 24 of these bad boys for $12-13. While it isn't special by any means, it isn't meant to be... it's a beer to drink on a hot night or to take advantage of the $1 special at the bar, and its delicious and refreshing. No frills, but above average for it's style.
