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.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 11/11/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly light, quite malty and yeasty, with some clean hop notes as well
Appearance: This one pours a hazy golden-orange color with a small white head and no lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, heavy malty, a little sweet, and a lightly hop presence
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a decent feel, average carbonation, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: Overall, this one isn’t too bad, especially considering the style. It isn’t going to blow anyone away from an awesomeness standpoint, but it is plenty drinkable and completely inoffensive.

Bomber bottle from Central Market. A classy malt liquor, say it ain’t so. Fairly average look: golden color with a thin white head. Thin aroma of light grain, cardboard and sweetness. Flavor: tastes like a malt liquor but not offensive or harsh...I suppose that’s a compliment in this category. Fun beer.

The aroma is corn, rice, adjuncts, booze. The appearance is clear gold, effervescent, white head. The flavor is corn sweetness, light noble hops, light booze burn. The finish is sweet, then a boozy, solvent like burn. Medium in body, greasy mouthfeel. Not bad. I did this beer just to boost my ratings of malt liquors, and in that category, this beer is a strong performer.

ttoadee (630) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Cream soda gold, fluffy white head. Nose is light malt. Slightly sweet with a healthy dose of alcohol on the tongue. Thin through the middle, alcohol predominates the profile. A little hop kick towards then end, chased by jealous alcohol. Had to try it...OK.

Draft. Like the fact they tried malt liquor. Clear tan imperial lager look and taste. Pretty present aftertaste. Eh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love it when craft breweries tackle malt liquor and though this isn’t my favorite Brewers Share offering. This clear orange beer is quite complex with a lingering aftertaste. Not much aroma but a nice imperial pils like taste profile.

bhensonb (10906) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a big frothy white head and champagne bubbles. Aroma is heavy malt with some noble/earthy hop. Med body. Frothy carb. Flavor is heavy malt, tends to be a bit heavy on sweet, but there’s some earthy/herby hop that tends to cut that way down. It might fairly be described as trying to head towards dry, and there is some bitter. Way better that what’s in most of those 24 oz cans.

Bottle at Dadtoberfest ’12. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malts, a hint of wheat, a hint of sweetness, andddd not much else. Nothing off or dirty or anything. I steal this all the time from Dad’s fridge when me and my friends have girls over and we’re trying to get weird. When dad catches me he isn’t happy.
