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.

On draft at the Full Sail Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, this poured a clear amber with a nice white head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts and some floral hops. Smooth mouthfeel for the type. Flavor was somewhat sweet, and the finish showed the alcohol Good for its style.

j12601 (7350) - 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.

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.

hfmejias (905) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAR 16, 2013
1 Pt. 6 Fl. Oz. Bottle that poured orange with a little white head. Some malts a nd spices are predominant in aroma but you also get some notes of booze from the high alcohol content. I wasn’t sure about trying/buying malt liquor but actually I’m glad I did; this one has a nice smooth and sweet taste from malts and fruits that complements the the crisp and refreshing this light body brew. It’s quite good.

adnielsen (9659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to BlackIPA for this wale. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Apple juice, corn, vanilla, sweet candy aroma. A bit cloying, candy corn, corny, somewhat spicy, juicy fruity flavor. Pretty solid malt liquor but this is no Molson Dry 7.5.

blankboy (6400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
[Bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry] Pours a hazy golden-orange with a spare diminishing white heads -- it looks flat. Aroma of cereal grain, caramel malt, apples and honey. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grain, alcohol, light fruit and some hops in the finish. Average bodied. Good for Malt Liquor but it’s too sweet for me.

Lubiere (10695) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
A murky amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, overly sweet fruity maple syrup and light resinous character, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light grassy hops, light licorice, so-so. Bottle at 2014 Ottawa Xmas gathering.

Boutip (4995) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes is pretty bland. Taste is also dominated by light cereal notes with adjunct barely noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing really special about that one and I can’t say I would have notice this was malt liquor if it had been a blind tasting.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 6, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 I am rating this to style which is a true ghetto style malt liquor. Pours rich golden amber with a three finger white head. Some minor lacings. Aroma is cider and malts. Taste is winey malty and lots of alcohol. Not too bad for a 8% malt. Very smooth for the style. I would suggest to the new brewer that he make a batch for the old school malt lovers at an abv of 5.5%. Then the flavors would be more in the foreground. For the high abv and the style it was really good. Hopheads should avoid at all costs. Drinkability: depends on how much alcohol you can tolerate. 01-08-09: had to update. Am having to struggle to finish the growler.
