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.

Pours a pale yellow color with a short lived white head. Smells like malt liquor. Really sweet and simplistic aroma. Sugar and corn with a bit of cereal and not much "real" malt aroma. Some sweet fruit esters, though. The sweetness dominates the flavor, too. Sugar, apples, cereal, and corn make up most of it. No hop flavor or bitterness to speak of.

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.

Served in a clear solo cup. Excellent presentation.
Appearance: clear, light gold color. 1/4 to 1/2 inch head that quickly dissipated.

Smell: grainy & sweet. You can already tell there is barely any hop presence.

Taste: Holy malt city Batman! Lives true to the style, and you can definitely pick up the corn notes.

Mouthfeel: The beer is thin, delivers the flavor package, and goes down easy. Unlike cheaper interpretations of the style, there is not residual alcohol burn, or unappealing after-taste. It is actually a refined and enjoyable finish, just the way its meant to be.

Overall: most of us have had some kind of gas-station malt liquor in our young days, and the fact that I ordered, drank, and finished this beer with as much pride as any other floyds offering really speaks for what it is. Its a good malt liquor, and for the style, id drink it again. Lots of other breweries condition malt liqours and they turn out fantastic, but kudos to FFF for a solid interpretation.
