COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"This ainít your Dadís malt liquor" - Brewmaster John Maier After the death of his wife, Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise 6 young children alone. His courage, love, selflessness and dedication inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the First Fatherís Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Fathers Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance. Dadís is brewed with Harrington and Klages malts, Flaked Corn, Crystal Hops, Free Range Coastal Water, and Czech Pils Yeast. Available in the spring of 2005 in the classic 22-ounce Rogue micropiece. Measurements: 17 degrees Plato, IBU 25, Apparent Attenuation 77, Lovibond 10 degrees.

22oz bomber, no date. Slightly hazy golden yellow with some chunky floaties and a one finger white head, fair retention. Aroma of old cooked corn and stale grain, a little honey sweetness. Flavor has a little more honey sweetness, otherwise the same but tastes better. There is a little alcohol fusel notes toward the semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 2. Low carbonation with a medium body. I did not like this.

brokensail (10822) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 13, 2010
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a soapy white head that recedes quickly. S: This smells like a cheap white/sparkling wine. Very dry and cidery with lots of grape juice, peaches, apple juice, and definitely some significant alcohol contributions. T: The flavor is pretty much the same as the nose, but sweeter. Apple cider with some white grape juice flavor. Thereís still that same cheap wine thing going on and a fair amount of alcohol. M: The body is medium with the carbonation being a bit high at first before dying down. D: For a "craft" malt liquor, this is pretty bad. Iíd rather have any number of mass produced industrial malt liquors.

tastybeer (1718) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of corn. Flavor of corn, light hops, and maybe some barley in there. Very easy drinking, I wish all malt liquor was this good.

10/16/10. Bomber. Sweet grainy aroma with a metallic sweet caramel grainy flavor that doesnít disappoint in the malt liquor department. Hahahaha.

Rando7 (734) - Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle pour to lager glass gives clear yellow color with white ring. Aroma sweet corn. Taste sweet corn, malts, a bit cloying. Mild hops on the finish. Palate medium and a little sticky. Slight alcohol. Boy Iíve had a lot worse beers than this including some rated much higher. Nice drink on a hot day.

strap (410) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - AUG 2, 2010
pours urine yellow. highly carbonated. lots of corn smell and taste. smooth for a malt liquor, but still harsh and biting. i was able to choke it down, so itís not as bad as a St. Ides. My first and last craft malt liquor.
