Quite unenjoyable indeed. Pours a clear yellow with a weak white head. Nose has corn, rice and hop extract. Taste isn't much better. Quite bitter with some old grassy flavors. Thin body is hard to drink. I may have to say this is worst than the original Mickey's.

The beer that got Chuck Liddell knocked out. A darker yellow than expected, no head, lacing, seriously why bother? Aroma is of alcohol and a bit of dumpster when collectors are on strike.

Hot, hot alcohol head in this one. Horrible aftertaste. I really can't hang with this one. Gets warm and gets even worse. It's cheap I guess, it has that going for it. Blech.

Looks promising in a sort of ugly way. Not horrible, but still fizzy and yellow.

Smell is, umm... I thinnk wet barn describes it as acurately as possible. Hay and Corn mixed with horse.

Tastes like a barn too!! Put some corn syrup on a horse, lick it off, and VOILA! Mickey's Ice. Left a weird syrupy coating on my tongue. It was all I could to to choke it down, even cold it was awful...

I guess is the sheer volume of micky's was enough this iced beer should do the trick. god, why have I set out on the bad beer pilgrimage?! let me go back to my sweet belgians and my robust stouts! I have a hard time distinguishing between all this garbage: head? yeah, considering im pouring this directly down into a glass. body? this this is ephemeral. skip this and go for olde english if your pressed for money.

This is the only 40 that I will consider drinking. It is quite bad though. If this beer is really cold, I can drink it just fine. The 40oz makes it hard to keep it cold to the last drop. Solution: drink fast. If you still can't handle this brew, add vermouth. That's a real mixed drink, mmmmm.

Ultra translucent, golden hue, frothy white head, decent size and retention, did lace well. The nose is killer, sweet, husky, musty, and alcoholic, not very pleasant or inviting. Thus you regretfully take a sip… husky, grainy, sweet, the alcohol burns. There is an unpleasant rawness to it, which opposes the smooth mouthfeel. Heartburn inducing. I’ll try any beer once… one was enough. All in all, this is another bad Ice Beer. Skip it.

this is one sick drink most of you will want to avoid, but for those of us in college with no money this is always an option. As far as dirty foties are concerned this is my personal favorite, with the closest competitor being OE mind you. Three of these will get you rocking, but tomorrow you will regret it.
