This is my new favorite beer. This is the first ever malt liqueur that I have tried. I didn't know what I was missing all those years.

This beer has a light taste for a barley beer and a satisfying after taste. 8% was a "wow" factor too. I always did get more of a buzz from 5% beer than I did from 12% wine or 40% scotch for some strange reason. One of these Natty Daddy beers is quite satisfying for the night.

Haha, all you arrogant so called beer connoisseurs would be begging for an ice cold 24oz can of Natty Daddy on a hot summer day if you were without. And you would love every drop of its perfectly intoxicating effects! Had to give this beer all 5' to offset all the undeserved haters. This is a mega brewed beer. You should rate accordingly and not go comparing it to craft beers. It does a great job at being what it is meant to be. So go buy a 24oz Natty Daddy and revel in its perfectly intoxicating glory.

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 !

I have NEVER been a fan of the oh so flaunted IPAS's, they taste like what they are, 200 bushels of hops, used as preservatives, to make ales and beers to survive the 6-9 month trip to India from England to slack the thirst of the gutter class ruffians that made up the army of the British East India Company .
Natty Daddy has all the alcohol, or nearly so, of the German beers that I got used to while in Uncle Sugars service, without on any of, to my American tongue the far more heavy tastes and "unusual" qualities of the beers brewed following the Reinheitsgebot laws. What we call "High Gravity" the call "almost there, but not quite".
Natty Daddy has , almost, all the alcohol of a German beer but with the flavor styles that Americans prefer.
Nice taste, smooth finish, not much of an aftertaste ( not that after 6 of them you are going to notice the taste of an Indian "Ghost Chili").
It smells like beer, having worked my way through high school at a bar run by the local Capo I know what beer, stale or otherwise, is supposed smells like.
Feel is as good as it gets unless you are some kind of "beer snob" who thinks they are THE sommelier of beers, it goes down right smoothly.
Look, really? Who looks at beer? It's meant to be drank, and in quantity!
Overall: Natty Daddy has the alcohol content and price point to bring back fond memories of the "bad old days' of the Cold War years spent In Germany with friends who would be friends until all have passed to the great beyond without the taste that required shots of Asbach Uralt Cognac to get it out of your taste buds.

I like this beer because it's a smooth tasting beer and it's inexpensive.
If I have two sleepless nights I buy 2 Natty Daddy's (24 oz cans) and begin
drinking around 8 pm. It just makes me relax and around 10 or 10:30 pm
I go to bed and fall asleep pretty quickly and don't wake up till 6 or 7 am.

This beer poured a honey gold with a moderate white head. It smells boozy, sweet, and cheap. Are those flavours? I think they are. It smells a little more like euro strong lagers than typical American malt liquor. So, this may be a very pleasant surprise.
The taste is really not bad for a malt liquor. I don't know why people are hating on it. Comparing it within its class, I'll have to give it a high mark. I've been waiting for a brew like this to be released. A sweet, smooth malt liquor that tastes boozy, between 8 and 9% alcohol and DOESN'T taste like nasty chemicals. This doesn't, so in its class, that's a plus right there.
The taste makes it clear that despite the smell, it doesn't quite meet the euro strong lager standard. For some reason, those are always better than their American counterparts. It's no Olde English either, but I'd say that's the closest comparison. It's like an Olde English that tastes boozier (a good thing), but has a little bit of an astringent off-flavour that makes it not quite on the same level as OE, which I consider to be the top of its class. Good stuff, though. I'll probably get it again. I'm sad that it was Busch that finally did this, but I've been waiting for someone to make a very simple, boozy, sweet malt liquor following the European example of making them simple and cheap, but not tasting like nasty chemicals or green apples. So, congrats Busch. I wish someone else could have done it first.

Final note: Great swill. That last few gulps of warm malt liquor that can have a devastating effect on your opinion of the cheap beer you've been swiggin. In this case, not a big problem. Even after it warms up, it's perfectly tolerable. But like all malt liquors, it's much better cold.

I usually drink Natural Ice also from AB, I didn't even notice it was Natty Daddy when I first tasted it. It did seem to be a little fuller than Natural Ice. I only found out when I read the label. A friend bought if for me. I like it better! For a cheap beer it's pretty darn good! Caution though, you will get a buzz a lot faster. So cut back a little on it unless you really want to get waisted. And if you drink it please don't drive!

I loved this product. I saw it at my local sketchy gas station for 6.99 for 15 cans (what a steal). I got home, went to my room and turned on the office season 5 episode 15. I grabbed one of the delicious looking natty daddys and popped it open. When I popped it, it smelt like the guy who canned it thought it would be funny to seal a Mexican food fart in there. With hesitation, I took a sip. To my amazement, it tasted better than it smelt. I finished my first one fast and went for my 2nd. When I stood up I realized I was already catching a buzz. Score! This product is the shit..speaking of shit, I ended up drinking 3 of these beers. The next morning I was awoken by the sound of a 8.2 magnitude earthquake. After I scrambled up I realized it was my stomach. I rushed to the bathroom, dropped drawers and unleashed the unholyest crap I've ever had. I shit out the dinner I had 3 weeks ago with the force of 1000 waterfalls. After all was said and done and my anus returned to it's original form, I was pleased with the versatility of the drink. Its will get you inebriated at night and acts as a full on colonic in the morning. Top job Busch.

Natty Daddy

25 Oz can poured into a frosty, glass mug

A: Golden yellow, Not too pale, Clear.
Fast growing head, About 3 fingers.
Not much retention, Less than 1 finger.
Moderate lacing.

S: Sweet Corn, Yeast, Malt, Bread
Cannot detect any hops, Though I imagine they are used at some point.

T: Apple-like sweetness, Corn, Slightly sour, or tart.
Definitely not your average tasting beer, or malt liquor,
Does not linger, No strong or offensive aftertaste.
Still not finding any strong hop flavor, But they could just be used to balance.

M: Light, Like water mixed with a little sugar to give it slight viscosity.
Stronger, more active carbonation when consumed just after opening,
As it sits, Most of the carbonation just evaporates away.

This beer surprised me, or rather, caught me off guard being much more bearable than I had expected. I used to buy only Best Ice until I think I was given on by accident, Now I'm hooked. Now I am not saying that it is this is one of the best beers ever, But I do not think it should be on the worst list either. When you read that it has 8% abv, You automatically think of a nasty malt liquor, Since not many 8% beers taste well. That being said, I find this beer has a good taste, Not offensive, And great price, At $1.35-$1.55, Although I've heard that it can go over $2 in certain areas. It used to be $1.09, But I guess they realized how many people preferred Natty Daddy over King Kobra, Steel Reserve or whichever High Gravity Malt Liquor.
Overall, This beer will remain with me throughout my life.

I actually enjoyed this beer, cheap beer has its time and place and this was definitely it. Clean crisp and refreshing, sweet grain, no bitterness, a little watery, but overall still enjoyable. I don't know if I'll buy it again, but for a cheap malt liquor it's hard to beat.

I am a little confused about the other reviews on this site, The Natty Daddy I got here looks like the picture but it is a Lager and 6% vol (not 8% as stated).

It wasnt particulary cheap either $15 for 24 cans, I can get just about any beer around that price, but that is not why we are here.

I think it has a smooth taste and the most important thing for me is that it does not give me heartburn like most beers does, it also does not make me feel like poop when I wake up even after a dozen or so of these.

Someone mentioned steel reserve which I am also a huge fan of, but let's face it SR messes up your system badly, which is why I ventured out and found these.

All in all they fit my pallet good and I really like them, but I do wish they were the 8% that were mentioned here.

I'm an English ex pat and out of all the american beers I would have to say this is the best. no heartburn , tastes good when cold, and gets you v.nicely drunk. The price is reasonable and in comparison I would have to say it's not far off my favorite beer Stella Artois for half the price over here. Don't be a snob and be put off by the name. A grade for a shit name
