As a daddy-to-be and a recent graduate of Oregon State Universitys Brewing Sciences program, Jason celebrates his inner college student and his soon-to-be new station in life with Big Daddy J. According to Jason, BDJ is a malt liquor that is simple and delicious. Its golden in color and hopped with Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, perfectly balanced so that its clean and drinkable smoothness makes that 8 percent alcohol go down so easily. Full Sails Brewers Share beers will only be available on tap at Full Sails Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, Oregon, and at Full Sails Brewery at Riverplace, in Portland, Oregon.

Bottle share at the first annual Dr. Owl going away party. Slightly thin and lacking in overly offensive apple esters. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sampled in Exira, IA. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a clear golden orange color with white head. Malt, apple, grain flavors. One of the better malt liquors I’ve had, quite drinkable.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to BlackIPA for this wale. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Apple juice, corn, vanilla, sweet candy aroma. A bit cloying, candy corn, corny, somewhat spicy, juicy fruity flavor. Pretty solid malt liquor but this is no Molson Dry 7.5.

Well, it is malt liquor. Simply an alcoholic version of an average beer. I will say that it did seem as if some effort was put into the product. It was definitely not Old English. Aroma was sweet, malty and alcohol, which pretty much describes the taste. It had an amber color with a small head. The palate was light and watery. Nothing special here but if you had to drink malt liquor this would be the one to choose.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Notes of apple, caramel, super sweet, sulfur. Not a fan of the sulfur character.

Clear sparkling gold in the glass. Surprising spicy hops aroma. More tasty spicy hops in the flavor with a muted metallic flavor. Overall, better than I thought it would be...

Pours a clear yellow/gold with a pretty big white head. Aroma is bread dough and mild hops. Sweet pale malt taste along with breadiness and a little caramel. Nice, for a ML. No alcohol detected and no ML character.

2/22-23/13. Bomber shared at some point during RBWG. I thought for sure I had lost my notes from that night and was packing today when BOOM, full page of ratings, including this GEM. Golden pour. A touch of spice, booze, and sweet malts in the aroma and flavor. Could be worse.
