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.

On-tap at FFF.

A - Pours a clear light yellow color, thin ring, wisps on top.

S - Big malty sweetness, caramel, hay. Lots of sweetness, very little/if any hops.

T - Big on the malts and sweetness (duh), caramel, wheat/hay, slight herbal/medicinal finish.

M - Light to medium, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - One of the better malt liquors...I need a brown bag for my glass. Not going to have again, but had to give it a try.

Tried this at FFF. Served in an Imperial pint glass.

A: Well it looks like a malt liquor. Cloudy yellow straw with a white film ring around the edges after the thin head subsides.

S: Yup, smells like one too. Big corn fixture. Although there is a slight hoppy presence in there which makes this actually a decent smelling beer.

T: Just like the nose. Corny barley and a light fruit hoppiness mixed in there.

M: Typical creamy mouthfeel. Decently carbonated with a medium to light body. Some hops left on the palate which is refreshing to say the least.

O: Well, this is a malt liquor. It's still not a good style and this isn't really a good beer. Rating to style though, it is definitely an above average representation of a malt liquor. If the hops weren't present this would have been another bad beer, they make it tolerable.

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.
