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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours a decent autumn orange with a nose of apartame-infused corn juice, light apple, and a touch of sourdough. Flavor is a surprisingly fresh blend of light corn, slightly dried hay, a touch of apple grass, and a smidgen of wheat bread in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Not bad. The Proper Gentlemanís Malt Liquor?

22oz bottle 12/14/12 (Whole Foods-AUS)-Pours a clear slightly amber with a small white ring. Aroma of corn and malt. Taste of the same with more malt. This mediu bodied brew is not bad.

brokensail (10961) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Clear golden pour with a small white head. Pretty authentic malt liquor aroma here. Sweet grain, a bit of malt, apple juice, and corn sugar. Quite a bit more hoppy than most, though. A bit citrusy even. Sweet corn sugar, apple, grain, and bread. A hint of alcohol, mild pears, and some hints of citrus. Pretty nice hop character, too.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle: † Bright straw, somewhat clear, light carbonation, soft white head, frothy, little lacing. † Corny nose, certainly mealy. † Not my favorite, but I guess its what is to be expected. † A bit smoother on the tongue, malty without being too mealy. † Lingering mealiness. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Strong mealiness on the finish. † Very clean example, not as corny as others. † Still not my favorite style, but this one seemed to have all the flavors of shitty beers without tasting that shitty. † Does that even make sense? † For the flavors I donít really care for, this one seemed artisianal. † Surprised its 8%, so its got that going for it. † A little fruity too. † For a Malt Likka, it wasnít so bad. † I didnít feel like I was going to throw up after finishing this 22oz bottle, so that counts for something... right?

pepsican (1447) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Iím kind of torn on this rating. Extra clean malt liquor profile but with minimal fruitiness. Lacks some oomph in that department. Overly hopped for the style. Earthy, dirty, hops. Very dry as well. No hint of the ABV. Iím torn. This isnít quite malt liquor, but Iíll be damned if this isnít good. Iíd imagine this is what fresh strong pale lager over in europe tastes like when fresh.

mmmbeer (1242) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2012
22 oz bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow color, bubbly white head quickly went away, aroma of corn and hard work. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt only tastes partially like corn, middle holds up well, finish is complete. Not too bad, even considering the style!

Crispy34 (386) - Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bomber bottle. The aroma is about half the strength, but still smells like any other malt liquor. It also looks like any other malt liquor. Golden with decent carbonation and some lacing. The taste starts out like a malt liquor would, except lighter, and then turns into a slight hoppy flavor... Very interesting. The palate is ok... for a malt liquor. Overall, the best malt liquor i have had, though that is not saying much on a beer rating site. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
