look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 24oz tall can into a pint glass. The hornet on the can indicates to me that Mickey's Ice has got the same sting as original Mickey's!

Appearance: light yellow hue with a haze-free body and a robust effervescence. Head pours two thick fingers and actually displays a little bit of retention! In addition to that, a pretty thick lace is left on the glass! For the style, it's actually not bad. A little surprise from ol' Mickey!

Smell: overly sweet aroma with equal parts malt and plastic. Not the best thing in the world; certainly not the worst. This is back inside the realm of expectation.

Taste: malty, grainy and sweet. A bit sticky and not particularly to my taste, but at least this seems natural and not particularly chemical-y. Not great but could be a lot worse.

Mouthfeel: light body with a somewhat light carbonation. A little bit bubbly and refreshing, but not enough substance here to be really creamy.

Overall: while this beer is actually quite flavorful for the style, it doesn't display the best the style has to offer. It is, however, better than you might think from the label, and offers a reasonable beer experience within its market.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from 40 into pint glass

Appearance - Pours a medium golden color with a billowy head that fades quite fast. With the head dissipating there is actually quite a surprising amount of lacing on this brew.

Smell - The aroma is very light. There is the slightest bit of corn with an ever so slightly caramel aroma present; very weak overall.

Taste - The taste starts out very sweet; corn and a little bit of caramel (just as the nose suggested). At the very end of the flavor there is an ever so light hoppy and sweet flavor on the tongue. They are very light (very light) and mainly toffee and citrus in nature. It would be quite pleasant, but unfortunately there is a rather unpleasant stale aftertaste that is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a very moderate level of carbonation. It is slightly more creamy feeling then would be expected, but still very appropriate.

Overall - Slightly beer in some regards then the standard malt, but in some way worse. Not bad, but really not good either.
