Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This delightful malt liquor was brewed to celebrate the equally delightful "Region" that we brew in. Brewed with a portion of Indiana corn, this is what a malt liquor should be.

On tap at FFF.
Served in imperial nonic pint.

"this is what a malt liquor should be..."
-FFF menu description of the beer

I like this. Sure, it isn't as hopped up as other FFF beers, but it Ian meant to be.
Some lactose-like sugar and boiled corn reminds me slightly of creamed corn-- but it isn't bad (I'm afraid that description has people fearing the worst).
The alcohol is well hidden, and only slightly makes an appearance as this warms to room temp. The nose is mild and easy onthe senses.
The body is well carbed with a little oily quality.
The beer itself is pale yellowy golden with a small white head that left frothy bubbles and lace.
Overall: this is a very solid malt liquor. If you were looking to get fucked up, this would certainly be a contender.

It's a malt liquor, and rated as such, it scores pretty well. Of course, I am a bit of an FFF fanboy, so tale my review with a grain of salt.

Region Riot on tap at Three Floyd's on September 6, 2011 

Served in an imperial pint. 

A: Appears hazy straw with minimal head. 

S: Light aromas of Corn Pops and citrusy hops. 

T: Subtle malty sweetness leads off, followed by corn-like grains and citrusy hops. Medium-high bitterness. Grainy finish. 

M: Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.  

O: Region Riot is an above-average representation of the malt liquor style.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: Pale golden color with a thin white head.

S: Very sweet and malty with hints of corn flakes/corn pops and grain.

T: Again, a little too sweet, but smooth with just the right amount of corn and grain to the flavor. Slight hints of hops on the finish, but mostly just grain and slightly bready malt. Tastes wrong but somehow also right, if that makes any sense.

On-tap at Three Floyds. Served in a half pint glass.

A - A finger of white foam settles to a partial cap and thick collar, leaving behind splotchy lace. Lightly hazed dark urine yellow color.

S - Zesty and slightly skunky herbs, some corn cob but surprisingly low sweetness for a malt liquor. There's a touch of lemon, as well as some bready malt and yeast character. Somewhat understated, even when warm.

T - Taste is again fairly bland. Lightly sweet lager, with some corn and sugar cookie sweetness. Finishes surprisingly clean. Hops drop off completely from the aroma.

M - Pleasant moderate carbonation supports a surprisingly light and refreshing body. Alcohol isn't noticeable at all.

D - It's an easy drinking malt liquor that isn't overly flavorful. However, the alcohol is masterfully disguised and there aren't any of the off-flavors that you typically get from malt liquors. Superior to most malt liquors I've had, but not in the top tier either.

Draft served in a goblet. Hazy pale straw gold, thin broken skim, spotty lacing on the side sipped from. Looks alright, smells pretty sweet, but that's to be expected.

Sweet and grainy, yeasty with grape notes, sweet corn.

A little bit overly sweet, but clean enough. Corn, grain, yeasty fruitiness. Honey orange shortbread cookies. Creamy feel... clean, no fusels or any of the typical nasty connotations of the style. Light bitterness fades in and out. Don't let it get too warm though.

Gets da job done dere. Region rats mount up... put dis shizz in 40's!

A:Very pale

S:Very sweet, not much in the way of hops, tastes like you would expect malt liquor to taste.

T:Smooth, malty, sweet. It's not offensive in any way.

M:Very light, not much carbonation.

O:If I was inclined to drink malt liquor, this is the one I would drink. It's worth trying.
