Call it sentimental but this is the beer of my people...

Born, raised, and educated in MD this offering was available everywhere during my salad years. Yeah, its an adjunct but perfect for a hot summer day, while eating crabs. Better when ice cold (don't let it warm... it will ruin your day). Sentimentality aside, a decent adjunct lager.

What else is to be said about good old natty boh. It's a baltimore delicacy hon (well not really since it's been bought out by Milwaukee brewing co) . Best served with crabs, or another natty boh. Considered a staple of the city, many people take pride in drinking this questionable beverage. Most likely brewed with corn, and leftover hops from the miller light batches, this beer is down-right bad. However, it has the best deal you can get. 30 packs for 14 bucks? oh yeahhhh.

Poor scores across the board, except for the "overall" category which I gave a 5. My reasoning has nothing to do with beer. The Ravens have won every playoff game (including the Super Bowl) in which I drank Natty Boh; therefore, overall, the beer is outstanding.

Served on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings.

A: Looks like piss. Thin, yellow color.

S: Smells slightly malty, maybe a little skunky and sour.

T: Actually, this is not that bad at all. Clean, biscuity and malty. Not what I was expecting. Tastes crisp and refreshing.

M: Bubbly, soda like feel. Not unpleasant given the crispness of the taste.

O: Not half bad, can't say that I don't like it. As a Maryland resident, Natty Boh is a requirement. Watching sports and eating wings at BDubs certainly aided the drinking of this beer. If I were to sit down and drink this in a blind taste test I certainly would not be impressed. Nevertheless, there are beers for different atmospheres and this is great for Redskins & Wizards games. Better than BMC for sure.
