Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, some grains. Taste is malts, corn, some alcohol present, fairly easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine example of this style.

Malt liquor HUH?! From Rogue?!! Why not! Let's see what sort of uh.. fancy glass I can throw this in, sure a simple nonic pint will do.
A real nice body color that seems to be a faint orange with yellow hues, some large cola bubbles also. Very cloudy appearance. Head barely manages to produce a finger of off white foam, very soapy and large. Clumpy yeast at the bottom, frozen beer almost suspended in appearance, also flakes which don't exactly look appetizing.
This nose is real surprising. Fruity lemon and apple, with some nice grain dry malt behind it. No giant rush of heat expected either. For just malt liquor this is quite a surprise.
Taste brings more of that fruit character. Some rolling lemon but mostly apple on the tongue, mixes with a real nice malt character. Crisp and effervescent but also real strong and chewy grain feeling, with some nice apple flesh and bite. A real nice mix of carbonation in the mid palate too. No sense of boozyness either.
Overall this is shockingly good.

A: A clear gold color with a thick white head that laces the glass.
S: Sweet grainy alcohol aroma with some fruity esters.
T: A corn and grain flavor with mixed with alcohol and sweet esters. A touch of hop in the finish.
M: A heavier body with good carbonation.
O: I typically don't drink malt liquor, but this isn't too bad.

Since the moment I saw this beer, It was something that I had to try. A beer called "Dads Little Helper Malt Liquor" gave you an interesting and mysterious introduction about what this beer could be. Excellent appearance, orange color, almost a dense feeling going around. Notes of everywhere, leaving a trace all over the glass. A sour and sugary smell, like candy with salt, something different difficult to catch for me. The taste took me to some saison beers, i dont know why, but this taste is magnificient. nice ending, not too sweet. Alcohol balance. A fruit flavor predominant, with some citrus like orange and lemon. The mouthfeel left you a sticky ending, but also very smooth.
An excellent beer that I would look for sure the next time. Excellent piece of work by Rogue.
