3.25/5 rDev +29.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Ample carbonation both big ol' ginger ale style bubbles, medium and thin stream of carbonation. It's something I've never really seen before in a beer. A single finger of head stick around moderately well and produces a good amount of lace. The body is Lager gold.
Smell: What smell? I'm catching faint whiffs of Lager wet straw malt, and that's it. Nothing offensive here, but notably absent and boring.
Taste: This is an odd one...mainly because I wouldn't call it flavourful by any means. I mean it's basically a mixture of various lager malts and adjuncts that seem to calmly level out with a slight citrus and dusty taste to it. The hops are non-exsistant, but somehow they've worked the fair potent alcohol kick into substituting and doing a bang up job of it, as the more solvent aspect seems non existent. Maybe I'm being generous here...but the beer, despite not being overtly flavourful has this well done, professional taste to it.
Mouthfeel: Well the dustiness is a bit of a drag, but the carbonation is well done and doesn't go overboard, the aftertaste is very mild straw malt. The transitioning is good at keeping the beer a very steady drinking experience.
Drinkability: Thankfully this beer is surprisingly medium bodied, which prevents you from really packing it away oddly enough. It's easy to drink, but there is certainly a subtle aspect that the 5.5% stays in the back of your head.
Final Thoughts: With a slogan like "Mickey's - Get Stung" I was really expecting this to be an awful, high ABV solvent, get you drunk as cheaply and quickly as possible beer. However, what I found was really a cream of the crop stronger, adjuct lager that was done exceptionally well. There's honestly not a lot I can find fault with on this one.

2012 Micky's Premium Malt Beverage - Reviewed 9/9/2012
Pours a hazy golden color with very visible carbonation. Head dissipates quickly leaving thin remnants to remain. Lacing is disappointing but not non-existent.
Very sweet with hints of corn and barley. Alcohol heat is very present in the aroma bit muted.
Taste profile of corn, grass, sweetness. Overpowering maltiness on the back end. No hops to speak of with a boozy finish.
Not as thin as is so prevalent in most other malt liquors. Carbonation is a bit overpowering and detracts a bit from the whole experience.
I would put this at the top of my "go-to" list when in the 40's isle. Artificiality has really been lost with this brew, however I am a little upset that the 40oz format does not come with the classic brain teaser that the "grenades" do. Don't miss an opportunity to party with Micky.
