In reality nothing. In their eyes the OG.

Malt liquors are light lagers with high alcohol. Generally using adjuncts (corn, rice, etc.) to keep the beer from being too heavy

the reason they're called malt liquor instead of beer is that they are required to be labeled so by law if the OG (or maybe ABV) is above a certain level.
