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.

Very happy to have just purchased this beer from Gabrielís in San Antonio! I can already tell you that I am going to get more of this one just in case they run out! Pours a nice clear tan color with slight orange notes. Head and lacing werenít bad at all. Aroma is already FAR beyond any malt liquor youíve ever tried. Itís incredibly complex, assuming from the (probably generous amounts of) Hallertau hops. Itís not overpowering like an IPA, rather more delicate and subtle, but wonderful! I get tons of herbal and grassy notes, a delicate peppery smell, and some fruitiness. It would be impossible to categorize this as a malt liquor if this were blind and you were just going by aroma (and maybe taste, see next paragraph). Flavor... again, WOW! Very nice! The peppery spiciness is more apparent now, as is the fruitiness. Although itís got some malt-liquor like properties (a little sweet corn, grainy notes, some light alcohol), itís more between a strong dry pale ale and a very strong, hoppy lager. Body is dry and light, alcohol apparent on the backside, and overall just plain delicious. Just amazing, great flavor, great aroma, great body, great job Full Sail! This is getting a ridiculously high rating because itís hands down the best American Malt Liquor Iíve ever tried. Rate to style, right? This beer is just amazing and deserves a great rating.

Pours clear golden orange with a medium sized off-white head. Smells grainy and hints of sweetness. Taste is sweet, woody, and has a touch of bitterness. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and lightly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Full Sail Brewerís Share Big Daddy Jís Malt Liquor finishes a little sweet and a little dry.

From 22 ounce bottle (had on draught once at their Hood River location). My first ever malt liquor. Pleasantly surprised. Sweet caramel, peach, and pear taste.

One of the better craft malt liquors I have had. Popured a dark urine with a thin, thin head. Nose of corn. A bit hot across the palate, but I found it appropriate.

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.

22oz bomber! This isnít a bad Malt Likka. Corn on the nose, but a good bit of hoppy earthiness and a smooth finish. Does the job, every time.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Rating milestone 1600 for me right here. Pours a hazy light orange with minimal head. Aroma of apple with corn and grains. Taste is light sweet. Apples and cotton candy with corn and grains. Full bodied with a slick yet creamy texture. Overall, not bad. One of the better malt liquors ive tried.
