Dad’s 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.

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.

22 oz bottle-pours a foamy white head. Color is yellow with effervescence. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain, scotch, chemical-diactyl. OK carbonation. Spot on creating a bad beer style.

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.

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 (11236) - 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 it’s fun for them. Why heavy metal bands do ballads, I have no idea. I guess it’s 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 that’s fun. I’m a little tipsy... and having fun!

DocLock (11048) - 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 (10886) - 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.

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.

cubs (10714) - 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 don’t like Malt Liquors but at least this is drinkable.
