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.

This pooured a somewhat darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of corn and pale malts. Flavor was corn, some rice syrup and 2 row malt. Not good by any means but very good for the style.

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Pours dark, foreboding amber, with little lacy white foam head. Aroma is just faint malty sweetness. Very faint. Now THAT is malt liquor. Malt, and then corn, corn, corn. Sweet corn and salt. Slight ABV burn in the mid to late palate. Interesting. Beats the hell out of Mickeyís or King Cobra, but still true to the "style". Manages to avoid being watery. Iím ambivalent, but also intrigued. Would I drink it again? Tell me this: Whoís buying?

This is one of the beers that was in my fridge while staying at the Rogue Bed & Beer in Newport, OR. Iíve always been intrigued by this "craft" malt liquor, so I was happy to have the chance to try it. Aroma is of corn and hay. Appearance is pure golden yellow like a lager with a little head. Taste is pure corn, probably the best that malt liquor could taste like...but thatís not saying much. Happy I tried it once though!

CanIHave4Beers (3209) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Cracked this one today in honor of all the fathers out there! Pours a golden color with a tight big white head that leaves some lace but doesnít stick around too long. The aroma is bread dough, metallic, and some fruity notes with a mild corniness. The flavor is clean with some crackery breadiness. The sweetness is there but itís mild and well controlled and there is a fruitiness with just a faint hop spiciness. This has easily the best identifiable corn character of any beer Iíve ever had itís kind of like blue corn chips.

drjay44 (2605) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2010
650 ml. bottle. Pours a thin white head of short duration, over a clear dark yellow (SRM 5) body.....nose is light sweet malts, with a bit of grass, corn, stale cigarette smoke....taste is light sweetness, bit of straw/grass, with sharp alcoholic bite at the end.....mouth feel is light, carbonation high. To Rogues credit (?) this meets the style quite well. The style is quite awful and is often barely drinkable. BJCP 5/2/8/3/5

obguthr (3750) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2010
Sweet malt and caramel nose. Shimmering amber, thin head. Medium bodied, cloying. Honeycomb, hay, and grass notes present. Bready finish. Gross sweetness as expected , but a suprising amount of hops not usually found in malt liquor. Drinkable.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2010
22 oz Bottle -- Pours orange-golden with a medium white head. Not much going on aroma wise here aside from sweet malt and hay. Thick and heavy on the palate. Quite sweet overall with some mild bitterness.

looks limey and slimy, aroma is of colgone along with the flavor. Really sour and overall pretty dissappointing. Ewww. Bottle from Sunset Corners, Miami.
