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.

brokensail (11008) - 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.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
A golden ale with a thin white head. A doughy malt aroma with sweet peary notes and light alcohol. In mouth, a marzipan tasting beer, veering on a Belgian ale, sweet vanilla and warming alcohol. Medium bodied. Tasted in late Dec. 2006.

Ratman197 (9868) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Bomber poured a clear golden yellow with a small rapidly disapating white head. Aromas of cereal, corn and some light lemon. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of graininess, corn, sweet malt and a bit of citrus with a crisp lingering bittersweet finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9728) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle. Pours sparkling yellow with a small frothy white head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw, meal), average hops (herbs, grass), average (sweat, horse blanket) with notes of light alcohol, butter, honey, and cooked corn. Average duration, moderate sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness, salty. Light bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation and metallic finish.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle... Clear, yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty, grainy nose with lots of black pepper, corn and a touch of mint. Malty, sweet flavor, but spiced up decently with those crystal hops. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Finishes sweet and alcoholic with mild bitterness. Good malt liquor. Why craft brewers do this style, I have no idea. I guess itís fun for them. Why heavy metal bands do ballads, I have no idea. I guess itís fun for them. Both disciplines do a really good job at the crossover attempt, putting full-time swill and ballad makers to shame. Yep, I guess thatís fun. Iím a little tipsy... and having fun!

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle from Total Wine. Golden pour with a pretty decent sized white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, graham cracker, and some light hops. Flavor is sweet, grainy, and has some light hops. My bottle was very carbonated. So this beer is ok, but certainly not great.

adnielsen (9123) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle @ home. A touch hazy, golden yellow appearance with a white head. Sweet pale malty, a touch boozy nose. A touch fruity (apricot, grapefruit), pale malty flavor with some corn. Slight Czech Lager flavor. I really donít like Malt Liquors but at least this is drinkable.
