COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap... A pale golden/straw pour with a fizzy white head. Yup malt liquor. Well, along those strides but didn’t have the intense sweetness often found in the style. Bready malts, mild hint of booze, grassy tones too.

robforbes (2073) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2012
pours a clear pale golden straw with a small off-white head, and good lacing that goes away as you drink. smell is faint, of malt, a touch of citrus, a little sweet and some grain. taste is thick, malty, cereal, grain, a touch of caramel, and a little bit of hops. ends oily and a bit sweet. better than your fathers malt liquor but still not worth repeating.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma of grain, hints of citrus. Flavor is much the same with a light sweetness and a bit of toast. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, I liked it.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours a very gently hazed gold with a thin to medium white head. Tons of grain on the nose, only thing keeping it remotely palatable is the apricot Jelly Belly jelly beans that I matched up with it. Medium bodied, grainy, empty aside from the grain. A touch of empty sweet malt, grain, toast, caramel, grain. Empty overall, not much going on. Nothing horrible, but nothing worth drinking.

blutt59 (6019) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle, orange colored pour with some lacy foam, pretty decent ml, has some good sweaty hops with a taste of ripe fruits

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours clear golden with a modest white head and a fruity yeast aroma. There is a thick caramel malt flavor with a funky rather bitter finish. Not really clean and drinkable as advertised.

Amber in color, clear with a thick white head. Nice malt forward flavors light hops. Easy drinking big alochol brew. This will catch you off guard lots of big alcohol.
