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.

A new batch of Region Riot brings FFF malt liquor out of retirement, courtesy of a super-classy 32oz bottle. Smells like an old-style corn-infused cream ale, befitting the local corn used here. Hardly a lightweight, though, at around 8%. Hops, if even present at all, are undetectable. Still has some of the classic FFF yeast character that's prevalent in their more German and Belgian style offerings, but this is nothing fancy--some straw, some corn, a hint of apple, and some fusel notes, all wrapped in a short, dry finish.

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.
