"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.

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.

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!

On tap at TDR in Springhouse, PA. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of grain and corn. Tastes of grain and corn with a honey sweetness.

Thanks Derek. Intentional corn and malt and alcohol. To get drunk by, but nah at 7%. Light yellow with white soapy head. Sugar for sure.

Sample at AleFest Dayton: Kudos to DFH and Rogue trying to bring some respectability to this style. The beer is an orange/gold color with a medium off-white head. Thin patchy lacing. The aroma is of course malty, with some dough and fruit. Medium-bodied and saccharine sweet with a lot of malt and corn flavor. The finish is grainy and sweet. Despite being made by great breweries, I just canít get into this style.

22 oz bomber. Golden colour, white head. Aroma ofr corn and apples. Fairly clean smelling, low fusels. Flavour however, is all nasty. Corn, corn, and more corn. A bit of malt is actually apparent underneath it though. Fairly sweet, with a thin, cidery body. The first few attempts where good breweries made malt liquors were pretty funny...now Iím not sure sure that proving you can make something that tastes like ass is all that compelling. Either way, itís definitely authentic.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, shared with my dad, ironically enough. Hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grass, slight caramel, cardboard, lots of caramelized sugars and toffee. Taste is a mix of sweet corn, caramel, toffee, slight biscuit, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

jercraigs (8666) - 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.

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2006
22oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods in DC. Clear yellow urine colored body, still, with little to no head. Nose is not particularily enjoyable, smelling of fuesal corn and sweet lemon wood polish. Flavor isn’t too bad, actually, moderate to high sweetness, some creamed corn flavors and the Rogue Pacman yeast covering the entire thing. Crisp, lively, hoppy on the tongue, however it doesn’t offer a lot to really enjoy, it’s basically simple.

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.
