This was only made for two reasons. First to get some one drunk really easily and to do it very inexpensively. You can purchase a 25 oz can around here for $1.09 usd and it’s abv is 8%. Ig has a strong AAL beer/alcohol flavor. Nothing great at all really about the drink. But if you’re looking for a fast, cheap buzz go ahead and purchase a few.

Drank straight from the 25 oz can while driving because YOLO.

Smells like corn and grain with a slight idea of alcohol and an even slighter idea of hops.

The taste is about the same. Lots of grain and corn with a modestly hoppy finish.

The feel is surprisingly good. Relatively smooth. The booze is present but only just. Easy to drink.

Overall, it's basically what you'd expect for a beer called "Natty Daddy". It's Natty Ice on steroids. If you want a cheap buzz, this is exactly the beer you should drink. If you want a decent flavor, there is definitely better malt liquor available. Gotta finish this review I hear sirens behind me.

One of the better malt liquors out there, certainty at the price. Sweet corn and grain flavors cover a big, boozy backbone that strips the palate. Forget West Coast IPAs, this guy is a real palate wrecker. Once you're at the bottom of a 25 oz can, though, you really don't care.

Good points are that it comes in a 25 oz can and it's cheap. It's also easy to pound, but has to be cold, real cold. Otherwise unremarkable, would not recommend it, comes in dead on halfway between poor and average.

25oz can stamped 19062 (about 3 months old) poured into a wheat beer glass at fridge temp 8% ABV. The beer pours bright golden straw yellow in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is sweet faint grain and creamed corn. The taste is slightly sweet up front rolling into barely tart, metallic slightly bitter weird aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, well carbonated and oily, soapy & buttery in the finish. Overall, not so good. There are far superior alternatives for your after work on a budget buzz. Steer clear.

For only $1.60 at my local liquor store, it isn't half bad if you're looking for something to get a pretty good buzz on. This one is good for something to buy at the end of the week on a Friday or something perhaps. :)

This wasn't the worst "lager" I've ever tasted. I'd say the worst one so far would have to be "Bud Light Platiunum". Either way, this is a good buzz maker if you're on a budget and provides a satisfactory "watery and lagery flavor".

This has to be one of the worst tasting beers I've ever tried. I bought one of the 25oz chode cans at the gas station for $2 on a whim. I couldn't even finish half of it.

another gas station story. dumped into a pint glass super cold, it's bright yellow and see through but pulled up a nice thick head thats got a lot of lacing and residual cap. pretty inviting right now honestly. taking a whiff gives you a sweet kick, lucky charms without the fun kinda thing. hint of some other funky thing going on, but in the end this hardly has an aroma at all. thats fine probably. taste is initially the same, cereal grains and water but after a few drinks theres a distinct taste of a roll of change sitting in this glass. guess i should've drank it faster.

Bought this at a Sheetz convenience store in suburban Pittsburgh in a whim. While knew that you could buy booze in a convenience store in PA. That' s kinda of a big deal. Anyway...this brew cost about a buck and a half and was yellow in color with a lightly viscous appearance. Poured with a moderate soapy white foam with medium low retention. Sweet corn and cereal aromas with light boozy aromas. No hop aromas. Medium light bodied with medium high carbonation  and light warmth near the finish. Corn cereal sweetness followed by super light acidic bite. Sweet corn cereal taste with light acidic bitterness. Finished  crisply with corn cereal notes. Generally sweet, with cereal sweetness. Light and very sweet. A dangerously boozy, very sweet beer.

This actually wasn’t that bad, for what it is - a larger-volume, higher ABV cheaper beer designed to give you a quick buzz. Pours a clear lighter golden color with some rapidly fading white head but actually had a little lingering spotty lacing. Smells mainly of malt, sweet corn and grain. Tastes similarly, and the aftertaste is even sweeter. Not quite cloyingly so. Smooth thin mild mouthfeel, not much depth. Good carbonation. Easy to drink quickly despite the higher ABV.

A beer thats all about the buzz.
Natty Daddy is one of those malt liquors that is geared towards giving you a good high and it does that task well. If achievement of a nice little buzz wasn't in mind, then why high-light it in red on the can? Yea, exactly...Let's start with the presentation. Bright blue huge ass can 25oz. Looks like one of those shitty energy drinks all the young punks are addicted to. This isn't your teenagers energy drink though. It's something ready to smack the hell out you. That's what the can seems to be saying to me. Now for the smell, or the lack there of. Not a lot of aroma to me. Run of the mill American lager smell. Bready, yeasty malt. Here's what you want to know.What does it taste like? Well, not much. First hits your pallet with that typical white bread and yeasty goodness like all Adjuct lagers. This daddy progresses into a narly metalic wang with a tad of nail polish remover. In the middle you get a rush of sweetness with a slight evaporation on the tounge. The sweetness is that sugar alcohol kind. Much like putting a artificial sweetener in your mouth. Its not a noticeable effect when your halfway down the can. There is no resolve finish to this beer. To really sum it up, this beer tastes like any Bud, Miller, Coors or Pabst with the exception that it has a alcoholic wang to it. There is no burn. Moving on to the feel. Natty Daddy is relatively light and easy going. Drinks much like a light beer. Slightly viscous with a good carbonation. It is smooth. Overall, This is not my favorite style of beer. I don't enjoy these lagers and definitely don't purchase them for the flavor. The flavor is bland. My soul purpose of buying this beer is to get hammered. Sounds immature, but in reality thats what it was made for. I rate these beers with all 5s because its not made to be fussed over. Its made to have a cheap thrill. Apparently some reviewers dont get that.

look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

25 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - fairly standard gold color with a medium foam head and tons of bubbles
Smell - Musty grains, some corn or rice sweetness. A little metallic. Not great.
Taste - smoothest of any malt liquor I've had. It just has very little bite and the alcohol isn't that big of a factor in the taste. Flavors are of crisp mountain water, grains, and some sweetness. It's not that sweet though, which was my complaint about Hurricane HG. Carbonation is high. Body is medium.

Overall, i would prefer a bit more flavor, like hop extract perhaps but it's a good bargain for buzz. Grade is a B-

This is not a malt beverage to be savored; this is a tool of intent. It is akin to "I'm in the mood for vodka, but I don't feel like making a drink."

It's an inexpensive way to get ethanol into your bloodstream, but it does have a price in the form of elevated liver enzymes and the social ramifications of being seen making the purchase.

If you are feeling brave enough to drink this in front of company, chances are you've already snuck a few into your system and are in IDGAF mode. Best served after everyone else is drunk, and preferably in a dark room, or in a glass that was stored in your freezer so you prevent yourself from tasting it and no one can see what you're actually drinking.

The label screams you’ll go 0 to sixty for a buck and some change. Daddy is a menace and there is nothing else to call this. Daddy. Smells like a locker room. Tastes like the belt that hit you as a kid. Feels like regret. The quickest way to survive in the elements is to chug a tall Daddy. I explicitly drink this when chopping wood. Daddy will fuck you up.

It is very smooth. The alcohol just kind of creeps up on you. Before you know it you’re buzzed. Good for kicking back after a hard day at work. Not offensive at all. Have one and enjoy. Cheers.

Drank from a 25 ounce can. Scores are based on the style.

Look - Prominently displays its extended size and high alcohol, and not much else. The logo is painfully cheap looking and I hate it. I also strongly dislike the garish bright blue color. Not a pleasant looking can, gets you into a rough-and-tumble mindset right away.

Smell - Absolutely nothing. Somehow smells less than its relatives Natty Ice and Natty Light.

Taste - At first I thought it tasted like nothing, but then I got this horrendous solvent-like fusel alcohol aftertaste.

Feel - Thin body with little carbonation, making this an easy but unpleasant drink.

Overall - Horrible in every right. I never want to see this beer again.

Okay! When paying about $8.00 for a 12 pack (and for an unknown promotional period) 15 we're not going to rate this like some high level ale sent from Europe or something. It's a malt liquor. It's got a little kick, which makes it nice. I'm no "commonsewer" (for those of us older people who know 3 Stooges version of connoisseur). It's like a other standard American beers. But lower priced, tastes a touch better, not heavy, and doesn't cause the next morning yucky feeling if not abused. Based on these points, I'm rating it a bit higher.

Hey. It's 8% and it's CHEEP. ($6.50/15pack). Its not magically delicious, but it'll get you fucked up and it goes down pretty easy. It doesn't have the metallic taste or the cloying sweetness of similar high alcohol low shelf brews.

look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance:
Pours to one finger head that eventually falls to thin ring and laces with a little coaxing. Clear light gold.

Aroma:
Cereal grains, slight DMS and malt, alcoholic

Flavor:
Clean and semi dry. Boozy. No hop presence. Slight malt peeking through at times. A bit ricey. Bland and boring.

Mouthfeel:
Light. Moderate to High CO2. Slight roughness.

Overall:
Boring, bland, a bit rough and for god's sake, you could do much better for cheap buzz at this price point. If it is anything like the original Natty, it will do a number on your colon.

Clear light gold appearance with good white cap and lacing.

Very mild aroma of some grain and something in the background like muscadine wine.

Taste is remarkably clean in the sense of a competently made malt liquor. I don't really get grain or hops and frankly wasn't expecting them but was surprised at how the brew came across as a well made clean conveyor of high ABV.

Medium-full texture with balancing carbonation.

Hey, it is what it is, a cheap alcohol conveyance system that doesn't taste bad. Actually it's somewhat refined considering the genre.

Let's be honest here it's a cheap 8% beer that tastes like every other American non-craft beer, and gets the job done like nothing else in it's price range. It's also quite refreshing. 5/5 for what it does. A non terrible beer to drink when you have no plans for tomorrow.

Like every beer that doesn't empty your wallets it gets low rated sniped by snobs.

25oz can. Poured out a clear, straw-yellow color with a small fizzy head. It smelled of sweet, hot malt, sadness and urban decay. Tasted like someone lit cereal on fire and shoved it down my throat.

One of the least offensive diesel grade malt liquors I have had. Not much to ogle over, but does what it's supposed to do efficiently, in a fairly palatable manner. Can't beat the price either. Surprised to just finally be seeing this in the Seattle area.

Drink COLD and try to remember what happened tomorrow morning.
