3.68/5  rDev +46.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Thought I'd take a break from reviewing craft beers and dig into a good-old malt liqour.

A- The beer itself is nothing to look at. Light straw with lots of bubbles (think cream soda.) The bottles, however, are lots of fun. The little hand-grenade bottles feature fun riddles underneath the cap, and the 40's are.... well... 40s.

S- Not much in the way of complexity... Mickey's smells like cheap lager concentrate. Banana, rice and corn jump off of the aroma and really overpower any other scents.

T- I'll admit it... Mickey's is like beer candy. While there's no hop presence, very little depth and lots of carbonation, this beer tastes really good. It's sweet, but not too sweet. It's bready, but not at the expense of the fruitier flavors. It's malty, but still refreshing. Very easy to drink.

M- Pretty thin and lackluster. Definitely goes down easily though.

O- Sometimes you're out of money and need something to get you by. More often than not, Mickey's is my cheapest ticket to a tasty brew that really is pretty decent!

2012 Micky's Premium Malt Beverage - Reviewed 9/9/2012

Appearance -
Pours a hazy golden color with very visible carbonation. Head dissipates quickly leaving thin remnants to remain. Lacing is disappointing but not non-existent.

Smell -
Very sweet with hints of corn and barley. Alcohol heat is very present in the aroma bit muted.

Taste -
Taste profile of corn, grass, sweetness. Overpowering maltiness on the back end. No hops to speak of with a boozy finish.

Mouthfeel -
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.

Overview -
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.
