"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.

daknole (10883) - 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.

hopscotch (10645) - 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!

adnielsen (10490) - 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.

"the corn and yeast make this a rather unique, if not incredible beer. worth a try, but i drank it with mixed results. better than i thought it would be...weird sweet aftertaste (good)...lacking in body."

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a a quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is full of notes of grain, malts and corn. Flavor has sweet malt notes with grainy and corn undertones. It is a bit syrupy on the tongue.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. The pour is medium cloudy golden with small white head. The aroma is pale malty, with some honey, hopcit. The flavor is pale malty, but with a somewhat dense palate, with more layered tastes than most malt liquors. More hopcitrus and apricot elements as it warms. Not a bad malt liquor, but not necessarily a very good beer, as such.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2007
Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma is muted. Sweet dilute malt flavour, with industrial flavours of corn - malt that ruins some of the more pleasant notes. Average palate is more full than it has any right to be. Let us never speak of this again.

This was an interesting experience for me. My first malt liquor made by a very reputable brewer. Normally this style is known for being exceptionally disgusting, and generally an excuse to package jet fuel and sell it to junkies looking for a cheap drunk. Yes, malt liquor is generally shit beer. So was this any different? Did Rogue finally allow me to see this style in a different light? Yes and no. I would say that this beer was certainly well crafted in the sense that it didnít have any of the harsh alcohol and otherwise empty sugary palate that most have. The aroma wasnít off-putting either- - corn syrup and pear juice was a little odd, but not horrible. I didnít get any stinky sewage corn adjunct stench that a couple of other raters found. The flavour was mostly corn syrup malt, but there was an astringent bitterness in the finish that kept it from becoming cloying. The alcohol was barely evident in the palate. I didnít find this appalling as several other raters did, but neither did I enjoy it all that much. Definitely my least favourite of the Rogue range so far, and not one Iíd come back to. However, it did prove that not all malt liquor has to be jet fuel.
