I know its a funny question, but its for pure novelty.

Also what the hell makes a malt liquor different than say bud or miller? Is it the addition of more rice and corn?

Malt liquor can also be perceived as a lager like beer with very little hop bitterness and often little hop flavor though that is not always the case It's primarily little or no bittering hops. Malty taste, usually of a higher alc range. Not an official BJCP style but... I've seen non US versions for sale that taste, like malty beer.

We don't have those strange beer laws up here.

I'm guessing it's close to a mild but with some noble hops and 2.5ish co2. I beleive there was a different name for that at some point. Probably some prarie boys making beer with no hop supply back on the farm way back when.

Megaswills love to make a high test corn beer with little hop taste/bittring and call it malt liquor, and I swear Old English tastes like Hawkeyes socks. Colt 45 actually has (or had) "artificial flavoring and color" listed in it ingredients. Loved the old ads though. Never saw them up here, buut I saw them a few times when visiting the States. Actually saw the Saturday Night Live spoof ad for "Cold Cock beer...It will know yuh out!".. years before I saw the Colt 45 ads. They weren't all that much different!

yep. we used to could get Oberdorfer Dunkel Weisse here in Texas, but they wouldn't add "malt liquor" to the label (which, why the hell should they, right?). so, no more Oberdorfer or several other good brews....

You know me. I hate to be a stickler (or Stifler's father), but it's not "Oberdorfer". It's "Obersdorfer". There's an "s" in there.

There are many German words that if missing or adding a letter changes the entire meaning of the word. It's things like this that embarrass a lot of people when they say things like "I hope your mother recovers from her refridgerator surgery" and wanted to say something else.
