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.

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.

bottle. clear gold with a small white head. fruity, almost tropical, and very clean aroma. flavor is sweet with honey and candy. some pineapple candy flavors. full bodied and slightly syrupy. grassy and tropical hop notes. fermented out pretty clean, just a tad on the sweet side...but honestly one of the best malt liquors i remember drinking.

Yes! But a screw cap clear glass 40 would have made this way cool Full Sail offering just way way cooler. It pours with a hazy grapefruit colored body that supports a wafer thin off white head of loose foam. The aroma offers up mild amounts of smooth corn and sugary malts as well as some faint floral hops. The taste is malt liquor sweet with sugary malts mixing with a pleasing creamed corn sensation that flows into some floral like hoppy notes that seem to impart no bitterness. Solid Malt Liquor. Get some!

I had to buy it...for 4 bucks... Itís hazy golden-orange with a small whitish head that fades rapidly. It actually has a nice citrus aroma to go with the grain and touch of grass aroma. Light-medium bodied and very smooth. Plenty of hop flavor over a decent malt brew. Very pleasantly surprised.

Holy shit! Iím totally a fan of malt likka. I never wouldíve known. I donít have a paper bag, but Iím enjoying this fancy little diddy from the bottle, so Iím not sure what color it is. Iím guessing maybe a 5 outta ten. That seems fair. The taste is sweet corny malt and heaven. I bet itís fancy.. Seriously fancy. I need to start riding my bicycle more. Queen is on the radio and Iím digging it. I could go for some hot pants right about now. Pink...

Bright apricot ale aroma - odd. Cloudy, orange-gold, thin white head; bomber with a good label. Big dichotamy between the aroma and the flavor. Does not smell like malt liquor, but definitely tastes likee malt liquor. A bit tangy, low to medium malting, starchy malt. Pretty good. Slightly mouthy. Thanks to PorterPounder for sharing @ the drowland-Tallahassee Winter Homecoming 2014 @ Proof.

Bottle shared at Proof. Deep orange pour with a bubbly white head. Very fruity aroma, peaches, caramel malts and bread. Sweet maltiness in the flavor with peach and apricot fruitiness, definitely not like all the other malt liquors and pretty good.
