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.

Pale golden color, brilliantly clear. Pours decent white head, creamy, but quickly dispersing as expected for a strong lager.

This thing has no nose...maybe smells like seltzer water. No hops, no malt, no alcohol. Maybe I've poured it too cold.

Minimal sweetness up front, and generally has a flavor profile matching the non-existent aroma. Pretty f'ing clean but boring. Clean flavor profile continues into the finish. Fairly balanced, maybe skewing sweeter as it warms.

Light-medium body, medium carbonation. No astringency, very minimal warming.

Basically seems like a light lager, but twice as strong. Feels a bit like a science experiment given the strength and lack of flavor, but definitely cleaner than any American Malt Liquor I've ever had

I seem to be drawn to liking the "trashy beers" as this is my favorite very great flavor.

OK, this is another one of those cheap summer beers that I like to drink right out of the can with a beer coozy while I'm slaving over a hot BBQ smoker for 5 hours in July in St. Louis. No appologies, this is what it is and I prefer it to plain old Budwiper or Miller Low Life. It's great for what it is, and if you compare it to the light tasteless beers that most of America drinks in the hot summer months, it's great. Cheers!

This is the smoothest high gravity lager I have had to date. The alcohol is hidden pretty well, a little light on taste, and OK body. I wish this was easier to find where I live, I would make it a regular in my fridge. I prefer it to its brother Hurricane that I can find almost anywhere.

Look - Dark yellow/light amber color. Very thick, long lasting head and good lacing.

Smell - Sweet, sour corn and booze.

Taste - Sweet corn and malts. Little but noticeable hoppiness and smooth finish.

Feel - Still pretty watery, and a little syrupy. Carbonation is about right.

Overall - A good entry in the "high gravity" malt liquor category. It's not packed with taste, but very smooth for the rather high ABV. Much better than competing beers (Steel Reserve, St. Ides, etc.).

1 can of this at the end of the day makes everything alright.

25 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 2/16/2018. Pours crystal clear golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Lightly spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/grains and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Very mild herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice robustness of pale malt/grains and mild earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and spicy alcohol. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Mildly increasing warmth of 8% lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very solid malt liquor. All around good robustness of pale malt/grains and mild earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the ABV; with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very clean and rich barley/grains and mild earthy hop balance. Not overdone on adjuncts, with plenty of barley presence. A pleasantly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Very well made as expected.

12 oz. can poured into a pint glass.

L---Deep gold color. Thick head (with an aggressive pour) that had suprisingly good retention and lacing.

S---Corn. Chemistry set.

T---Better than the smell. The chemistry set doesn't follow through. Sweet corn and malt.

F---Mine was very cold, which is probably best. Wet & smoother than would be expected for the ABV.

O---I want to rate to style, which would give it a much higher score since it's style is "cheap & high octane" and it's as good as you're going to get in that style, but I can't give higher grades with a clear conscience.

Pours a dark golden straw color. The head is white with somewhat lasting retention. There is only bit of lacing left unevenly.
Smells like sweet corn mixed with random chemicals.
Taste just like the smell but with more chemicals.
The mouthfeel is sorta think. Good thing the carbonation is bubbly enough so as to lift it a bit.

Drink ice cold in a frosted glass.

You're certainly not picking up a Natty Daddy tallboy when you want a beer you can savor. Surprisingly, it's drinkable when sober (if a little harsh and malty sweet) and downright refreshing when you're... well, not so sober. I can pick this up for $1 per 25-oz can at the drugstore of all places and that kind of value just can't be beat. Natty Daddy won't impress you but it doesn't have to. It's the king of the gloriously cheap drink for this university student.

I have tried a lot of beers and this beer is well rounded, it affordable , it’s a great taste on a Saturday afternoon after finishing mowing and yard work and wanting to enjoy a couple ice cold beers with neighbors and friends. It doesn’t always have to be craft beer! Here’s to keeping it real!!! Well done Anheiser Busch!! And here’s to Saturday afternoons with neighbors and friends working in the back yard !
