COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at the source. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma of grapefruit and straw. Taste is lemon rind and hay. Decent.

On tap at the Pizza Port Carlsbad pouring up deep gold with faint haze and small near white head. The aroma has fresh floral hop notes, a bit of spicy hops and then a pretty good load of malt sweetened lageriness. The taste is similar with a pleasing prickly yet gentle floral and spicy hoppiness that only briefly ventures away from hop flavor toward hop bitterness. It has a robust base of honey like sweetness and apple like sweet esteriness within an undercurrent of sugar sweet malts and lager yeastiness. I found really no flaws that just about define the style.

Gold with modest white head / Clean nose of corn and resin, / Medium body, sweet, fat with soft carbonation, and with good finish / Soft floral flavors of honey, popcorn, and candied orange / Not something that requires a lot of reflection, but fun and tasty.

On tap at The Bavarian Lodge. Pours a clear, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is corn, sweet grain, and a touch of florals. Flavor is similar. Sweeter grain and cereal malts, corn, some florals, and a very light grass. Finishes dry and clean with a very light bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Medium-light, somewhat sticky body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty bland and generic beer, but it is a malt liquor and this is exactly what I expected. Very clean and lightly sweet while hiding the alcohol well. Not bad for the style.

Draft at PP Carlsbad. I think this is the first time ever that I have had a malt liquor on draft, and I paid a premium pint price. Golden pour, quite cloudy, with a thin fizzy head. Sweet corn, bad malt liquor fruit notes, rotten grain, and grassy bitterness. Yes it’s definitely a real malt liquor, but a pretty good one at that.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Hazy dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Thick palate and a bready aroma and taste with some citrus notes and not overly sweet.

Clear hazy yellow with a slight white head. Aroma is clean, light corn and sweet malt. Taste is easy drinking sweet malt, corn, and a lightly hopped finish. Best malt liquor I have ever had. Great beer.

On tap at bangers & lace chicago. Light corn aroma. Nice round light malt and clear sweet corn flavor. No booze burn. Truly a pretty good malt liquor

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 This is a strong American lager, not sure I would call it a malt liquor but Floyds does so whatever. It is light bodied and rather dry. Hops imply an ale like fruitiness. This is an amusing beer. Some strange tropical fruit type overtones develop as it warms.
