Small, briefly lasting foam. “Good old American cheap beer,”. To be be consumed if you’re thirsty and need some alcohol. It’s 8% abv is useful.

12 oz. can -

Typical macro lager look, smell of fusel alcohol with a bit of grain, taste of cheap beer (which it is) with harsh alcohol. Alcohol gives dryness.

It is what it is supposed to be, I guess. Cheap beer with alcohol that stands out.

I legitimately drink Natty Daddy regularly. It's inexpensive, taste is good, bitter, dry, smell is okay for an aluminum can beer, color is lagarish--not too light (amber), alcohol content delivers quick euphoric feeling and the tallboy can means fewer trips to the frig where there is even more Natty. Overall a decent beer.

found it on the shelf while looking around in the separate beer room of a sheets gas station. for a basic cheap beer, not bad. drinking it now. although it is 8% ABV, light is the only description. light color, light flavor, almost no aroma. would be good with a big plate of spicy Mexican or Korean food. really can't complain when look at price. think Ultra Lite with the kick of a mule.

This stuff isn't horrible, but you don't buy it for the taste, you buy it for the 8% alcohol in a big can. However, its not really that bad at all. Its drinkable, just don't overdo it ;)

Fusel alcohol meets sugar, meets corn, with grass notes, meets sugar. Undrinkable even when cold. Thin lacing and with no head beyond a few seconds. Aftertaste reminds you of rocket fuel, no subtleties of any kind and no nuance. Gives you a headache really quick. Drain pour of the highest order. The worst tasting beer or malt liquor I ever tasted from any brewer, makes Steel Reserve seem refined. The Russian Biker Bitch of Trailer Park Beer. A good way to get your neighborhood featured on an episode of Cops. 1.25 rating, and I'm being nice. Avoid!!!

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.

What do you expect for a $1.00 a can? Its 25ozs of regret and bad decisions. When money is tight this here will do the trick. Actually pretty easy to drink once you choke the first one down.

Natty Daddy - 72F loud and fizzy like some dramatic person who talks loudly, over the rest of the people in the fast food restaurant, clear in a plastic sort of way. A disagreeable flavor with a fard of makeup like sweetness trying to cover up self inflicted flaws ie meth craters on its face. Has a bit of heavy bite like lugging life’s possessions in baggage along the highway, car long since broken down. It’s a daddy in the sense of not a real father but just some novelty title used arbitrarily in cheap sex play. Sure it grows on you like any bad situation will, but what will be the true cost? Foams up big and loud but doesn’t stick around. You are what you drink. Has a sweet facade, but the alcohol cuts you in the gut, then leaves a long wet syrupy flow all over the floor of your mouth. Funny how the shitty ones are the most fun. Reminds of the last cheap beer i bought, after careful deliberation as regards to most alcohol per cent cost at a gas station (why don’t they list this like they do cost per oz on foods at grocery store?), and, not wanting to unease Jen by drinking in car way back from Dallas foodie event, chugged it down in bathroom, and she know exactly what i’d done when i got back into car. Couldn’t really manage to make three hour drive back without something, having gone without smoking a while now, still craving as much as those guys who find butts on ground and roll em into a bugler or top paper.

Type: 25-oz. can
Glass: Clear 15.25-oz. pilsner
From: 5 Star Market & Liquor in La Mesa, Calif..
Price: $1.79 (I think)
Purchased: Oct. 10, 2017
Consumed: Oct. 10, 2017
Reviewed as: American Malt Liquor
Misc.: Canned on June 9, 2017 (I think)

Recently was dared to review a King Cobra. Actually did not know that Malt Liquor was reviewable on Beer Advocate. Once I looked it up and saw I was, had to go with it. Once I saw that there were seven (seven!) other Malt Liquors at the next-door market, made it a point to review one each Tuesday until I run out. Typically am against all the big boy beers, but I am breaking that rule for this challenge. Fifth up was Natty Daddy, which I had never heard of prior to seeing it with the seven others a few weeks ago. Currently ranked as the 91st-worst beer, which was better than Mickey’s (68th), Hurricane (80th), and King Cobra and Old English 800 (both in bottom 30). In order so far, I had it Mickey’s, Hurricane, Old English 800 and King Cobra with the latter two way back.

Poured a straw-to-pale clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of white frothy head. Lots of fast-moving bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Almost looked like chunks on the bottom. Very good spotty lacing. Decent retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled big booze right away, reminding me of an American Adjunct Lager “Ice” beer. Smoothed out after a bit though. Got corn, pear, apple, green grape, buttery malts, white cracker and white bread. (Smell - 3.50)

Taste was not quite as good. Like the first two I had in this series, the first sip wasn’t bad, but the following sips were trash. This was probably not quite as bad, but still bad. Got sweet corn syrup, wet sticky grass, cold scrambled eggs, wet grain, popcorn kernels and hints of boozy butterscotch. (Taste - 2.00)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, abrasive finish. Got much worse as it went on. (Feel - 1.50)

Not that good of an American Malt Liquor. Probably in the middle of the five I’ve reviewed now, but closer to the bottom than the top. (Overall - 2.00)

Straw clear yellow no head
Smells sweet and corny, the alcohol doesn't sneak up on you until the taste
The taste is sweet malt and alcohol
Overall more sweet taste than other malt liquors would recommend for beginners.

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.
