"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.

Growler from Half-Time. Pours a very hazy golden amber without much of a head, so it already at least has a bit more going for it than the malt liquors I vaguely recall from my halcyon college days. Very sweet aromas, malt and corn mostly with a little bit of cardboard and alcohol. Remarkably sweet, reminding me of a fruit lambic, but without any of the lovely funk or tart acid that one would expect. Still not an unpleasant flavor. But way too sweet. Finishes with a little lemony acid, and still on the sweet side. A whole lot better than I had thought it would be.

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.

3fourths (9146) - 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.

22 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma has a moderate level of sweetness, some fruits, a little corn, hints of alcohol, and caramel malt. The flavor is sweet with caramel, fruit, vanilla and alcohol prevailing. This was better than I expected, but still only worth having once.

650 ml bottle at the Beerhive. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A sweet grainy and honey nose, some alcohol. The flavor is a nice Malt Liquor but it still retains some dirty aggressive flavors that the style seems dominated by, sweet grains, alcohol warmth. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with an off white head into my 1L Silver Bullet mug. The aroma has a malty almost honey like sweetness, while the flavor is sweeter grain and almost toasty. The faintest touch of hops comes through. Really quite drinkable.

Pours clear and golden. Less than a minute there was virtually no head remaining. Just out of the frig there was zero aroma. As it warmed toward room temp some sweet malt became apparent. Sweet syrupy malt flavor with some corn. There is just a hint of hop bitterness. Probably a pretty good brew for a hot summer day.
