2.8/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a pale golden color with a one finger head that quickly recedes, leaving no lacing.
Smells fruity at first, almost complex, then a straight up green apple, yeast, and malt fragrance.
Taste is really sweet, alot of malt, with a mild alcohol heat, followed by a hint of grassy hops.
Mouthfeel is syrupy due to the maltiness, but otherwise thin.
Overall, not bad, but not the best malt liquor around.

O.K. get over it...how do you get 8% at this price and not be a hop-a-li-cious beer...bring your nose down a little and remember respect beer no matter what it is. As far as I'm conscerned...I think it is the perfect lawnmower beer for the price and ABV...my lawn has never looked SO BAD!!!! hahahaha. On the real side it has nothing, but ABV going for it. It is still a Busch and a not so wimpy yellow beer. Has a real yellow color and weak foam with o.k. nose...as for taste it's a Busch with 8% ABV. Remember just my opinion,just respect beer.

It's Thursday night... the day before blessed payday. You are broke. Not just a little broke... more like digging under the couch cushions for silver or even copper broke. You JUST WANT TO GET A LITTLE DRUNK. So instead of sobbing, you drive to the nearest coinstar on empty and cash in your $3.76 in change. Good news though! That will buy you two natty daddy's... the equivalent to eight pedestrian beers. Fire up the Netflix and enjoy binge watching Trailer Park Boys.

That's the miracle of Natty Daddy.

As for the beer itself? The minute you open the can, it's a supernova burst of chrome stripping malt odor that will make you rethink your life choices. HOWEVER, half way through you are buzzed enough not to care. After the tsunamic malt/sugar/corn wave of the first nauseous sips, you're in the zone. While most mortals would have succumbed to fear, you put in a valiant effort to get a little drunk. Cheers!

It's pale and fizzy, cheap and available at all the finest convenience stores. Breaking down the price, about 90 cents for a 16 ounce can. How does it taste?...like Busch with a shot of booze... And the smell?...It's a walk through a New Jersey cornfield in August. I gave it straight fives because I'm on can number three and love everything when I'm looped.

Aroma and flavor is fusels/apples, corn/grains and a long and big alcoholic/heat burn into the finish. Surprisingly better than expected although not enough.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- What you would expect, straw yellow/gold with a fluffy head that lingers.

Smell- Faint aroma of corn, bread, sugar, and yeast.

Taste- Follows the nose, but it's actually quite pleasant, like drinking liquified bread sweetened with a touch of sugar.

Feel- Very full bodied for the style, which I love.

Overall- As far as cheap malt liquors go, this is my standby.

Very light golden color with a large white head that goes away quickly. Very carbonated. Has a skunky light malt smell. Tastes grainy but very watered down.

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.

Picked this up by accident at a WEIS grocery store in PA. I thought it was a Natty Light... it was not.

I'll start the review with the good. It was cheap, and has a high alcohol content. If those two items are not your chief concern, stay away. It was also fairly heavy at 25oz., so I suppose it would be good for lobbing at would be attackers, or feral cats attracted by the smell of rancid urine coming from the can.

...It doesn't smell just like rancid urine though, I also picked up a hint of Fritos, that smell when you first open a can of tennis balls, belly button lint, terpentine, burnt hooker pubes, badger anus, and a hint of orange peel.

I'm not proud of this, but after taking a few sips I had to throw it from a moving vehicle, the smell and taste were just too offensive. Some of it got on my arm and I had to pull over and pour Scope on it to make the smell go away.

If I had to describe the taste in one word it would be, shitty. If I had to use many words, it would be described as; piss, store brand pork rinds, musty blanket, grundle sweat, dicarded homeless man gloves, and a hint of orange peel.

I appreciate a high alcohol content malt beverage as much as the next guy, but I'm not willing to sacrifice my dignity in order to get it.

Unless your tastebuds have been burned off in a freak battery testing accident you should not drink this. If you see it on the shelf, back away slowly and try to avoid looking directly at it.

Overall, fucking horrible., unless like the guy from u Albany, you're looking to get the fucking party started.

'It's not good but that's what's good about it!' We used to pay 88 cents for these back in college and that includes tax and bottle deposit! Not the best tasting but you cannot beat the value. I graduated from UAlbany over a year ago and I still drink them to 'get the fuckin party started' every once in a while.

Can shared by Matt last night. Apparently $1.19 for a 25 oz can. What a bargain!

This one pours a light straw gold/amber-ish color, completely clear, with a small head, and no lacing. I can't believe I'm "professionally" reviewing this beer.

Smells like old apple juice, booze, paper, cheap champagne, and surprisingly, a little bit of grassy hops.

At the first sip, I didn't actually find this to be that bad. But after sip #3 or 4 or so, as it began to warm even a little bit, this got absolutely atrocious. It has this awful stale candied sweetness, like fake and old apple cider or apple juice. It tastes like cheap apple wine, or something like that. It was a bit boozy on the nose, but surprisingly, it doesn't actually taste that boozy, which is nice, given the ABV.

This is light bodied, but syrupy at the same time, with a high level of carbonation. It's exceedingly hard to drink.

This is as bad as you'd expect.

Not good, really not good. Doesn't even taste like beer, tastes more like a horrid champagne. This is one of the few beers that I truly didn't like..... scratch that the stuff is revolting. When you pour it, it has a minimal head..... yet looks oddly no different than Bud or anything else really. Then, as soon as you take that first sip, the smell and flavor of bad champagne/sparkling wine hits you like a ton of bricks. It's not even astringent feeling, just like a bad wine rather than even tasting like beer. Not sure what the heck is in this stuff, if it's not hoped enough of what the deal is. But I'm sure as heck not drinking the stuff again. Honestly, for the same price, you'd be better off with Steel Reserve which actually tastes like a beer. Okay, not a great beer but a beer and actually a somewhat serviceable one.

Yeah thanks for trolling rudzud

Big fluffy head fades fairly quickly, decent lacing, crystal clear watery sight tan color.

Nose macro adjunct corn syrup rice sugar thing, mild mineral skunky lager, syrupy sweet candy.

Taste more macro mess, little booze, sticky syrupy, blond malt, straw, candy syrup, corn syrup and rice sugar, little fruity lager thing, no booze, little bitterness.

Mouth is syrupy little sticky, good carb

Overall as expected, thankfully not as sticky tough.
