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.

okay, smells like a malt liquor—corn, alcohol, methane, dstant woody hops. clear yellow orange with barely a white head. a hint of peach with corn sugar & honey, sweet but not cloying. decent carbonation. sweet finish with warming

Lubiere (10485) - 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.

[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.

2014-10-09. Dark yellow body is near headless. Aroma of lightly cereally pale malt. Moderate alcohol. Flavour is similar cereal pale malt , moderate alcohol. Very light fruit. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent and surprisingly drinkable but not very exciting. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

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.

"This was good for what it was. A fun one off. But why make a $4 22 oz Malt Liquor? Not really the craft brewer’s market, but whatever. I tried it once. A little corny and grainy in flavor and feel with more malt sweetness and a hint of metal than hops, which were slight and grassy. Not bad, but nothing I need to revisit."

Let’s be real here. It’s a good malt liquor but it’s still a malt liquor, not some style bending masterpiece like Head Banger was. Corn, touch metallic, sweet with a hint of black pepper notes. Consumed in a brown bag.

Gachupines (954) - USA - JUN 18, 2014
Amber with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with a touch of cheap bourbon. Flavor is very malty with a bit of sweetness. Kind of like a full bodied malt liquor. Wife: 3.65

DialSquare (2937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle shared at Proof. Malt liquor definitely not my thing, so no idea how this rates within the style. Gold pour, small white head. Aroma is corn. Tastes are corn, honey, gasoline (I assume). Not for me. 4.6

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2014
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.
