16 ounce can purchased at one of the local quick marts.

A: Clear orange golden with moderate head that dissipates quickly.

S: Grain and malt. Very little hop notes.

T: Mild. More malt than hop. Typical cheap flavor.

M: Smooth and not overly watery. Decent carbonation.

O: Not awful for an ice beer. Don't care for the smell but it goes down smooth.

Clear pale gold with a good 2 plus fingers of dense long lasting white head. Very impressive lacing.
Smell is grasses some apple peel and a slight corn aroma.
Taste is mostly biscuit malts with a pinch of corn. Slight amount of hops toward the end of the sip. Very light alcohol presence.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with average carbonation and a lightly dry somewhat sweet finish.
Overall a fine Ice beer . Much more pleasant than regular strength AAl types due to bigger flavors in almost every way. The flavor was still pretty decent after it had warmed up some.
Note: This beer still has a thin coat of white head after close to 20 minutes!

Poured from a 24 ounce tallboy into a shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces about an inch of frothy head which has a bit of staying power, coating the sides of the glass nicely. The color is a pale straw with moderate carbonation.

As with regular Mickey's, there is nothing in the aroma or flavor that screams "malt liquor". It just has a typical and rather smooth AAL profile- light malt flavors and just a kiss of hops (if that). Corny flavors and metal are subdued while the beverage is cold.

Mickey's is a good beer to walk around the streets with in my town- Butte, Montana, where St. Paddy's Day is quite an affair. (Open containers on the street- not in the car- are legal until bar closing time).

I have to give this props, for a cheap and i do mean cheap ice beer, it is pretty good if you can find it in your area. We all know mickeys fine malt liquor but this is a different breed of beer. I have only had this one time in a 40 oz bottle that I found on a roadtrip in Minnesota. Its reasonably prices at $1.49 a 40 oz. It looks and smells like a american adjunct lager but its got a little punch behind it! Love it love it! Now i pray miller/coors dont take it off the market! i give it 2 thumbs up for the average everyday drinker!
