Very happy to have just purchased this beer from Gabriel’s in San Antonio! I can already tell you that I am going to get more of this one just in case they run out!
Pours a nice clear tan color with slight orange notes. Head and lacing weren’t bad at all.
Aroma is already FAR beyond any malt liquor you’ve ever tried. It’s incredibly complex, assuming from the (probably generous amounts of) Hallertau hops. It’s not overpowering like an IPA, rather more delicate and subtle, but wonderful! I get tons of herbal and grassy notes, a delicate peppery smell, and some fruitiness. It would be impossible to categorize this as a malt liquor if this were blind and you were just going by aroma (and maybe taste, see next paragraph).
Flavor... again, WOW! Very nice! The peppery spiciness is more apparent now, as is the fruitiness. Although it’s got some malt-liquor like properties (a little sweet corn, grainy notes, some light alcohol), it’s more between a strong dry pale ale and a very strong, hoppy lager.
Body is dry and light, alcohol apparent on the backside, and overall just plain delicious.
Just amazing, great flavor, great aroma, great body, great job Full Sail!
This is getting a ridiculously high rating because it’s hands down the best American Malt Liquor I’ve ever tried. Rate to style, right? This beer is just amazing and deserves a great rating. SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Pours clear golden orange with a medium sized off-white head. Smells grainy and hints of sweetness. Taste is sweet, woody, and has a touch of bitterness. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and lightly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Full Sail Brewer’s Share Big Daddy J’s Malt Liquor finishes a little sweet and a little dry.

I mean, what am I judging this against, Schlitz? Olde E? This is not bad comparatively, people. SudsMcDuff (8494) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2012

From 22 ounce bottle (had on draught once at their Hood River location). My first ever malt liquor. Pleasantly surprised. Sweet caramel, peach, and pear taste. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2012
One of the better craft malt liquors I have had. Popured a dark urine with a thin, thin head. Nose of corn. A bit hot across the palate, but I found it appropriate. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Clear golden pour with a small white head. Pretty authentic malt liquor aroma here. Sweet grain, a bit of malt, apple juice, and corn sugar. Quite a bit more hoppy than most, though. A bit citrusy even. Sweet corn sugar, apple, grain, and bread. A hint of alcohol, mild pears, and some hints of citrus. Pretty nice hop character, too.
