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.

VinegarStroke (208) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle( 1P 6FL OZ): clear deep straw with a very poor head. Lifted malt, apples, floral, simple malty nose. Slightly sweet. Not sour and with low to medium bitterness. Slippery and fat. Apricot and honeysuckle. Like Viognier. Medium weight and length. Ok. Clean. None of the horrible full sail aromatics I’ve noticed in their other beers I’ve tasted.

alexanderj (3268) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap at Full Sail in Hood River. Did not realize this was a malt liquor; when I was drinking it I couldn’t really decide what it was. Clear gold in color. Flavor of sweet malt and fruit. A bit dry in the finish for the style. Good in moderation.

BuckeyeBoy (2463) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 28, 2009
On Tap at Full Sail Brewery, Hood River. Pours out a goldish amber topped with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and some malt. Tast was more of the sweetness and a nice malt. Not bad at all for a Malt Liquor.

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.

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.

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

travita (3705) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle. The look is orange in color, white head, and clear. The smell is malt, alcohol, corn, and basic. The taste is malts, sugary, brown sugar, sweet, and ok. Stays out of its own way but not much additions.

Bomber. A clear yellow color with a medium white head. A rich nose of corn, alcohol and sweet malts. The flavor is quite smooth, not hot, corn, grains, honey. Very good.
