3.23/5  rDev +28.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I like to use the correct glassware for the style -- the correct glass for a 40 oz. is the glass it comes in, of course! Drank this guy cold out of the bottle.

Poured a little in a champagne flute to look at it, the green bottle makes it hard to judge appearance. Clear, not even that yellow, decent head though for a malt liquor. Can't believe I just did that... what did I think I would see.

Smells a little like sewage. Very dry for a malt liquor, no sweetness on the smell. Grains, vegetables like brussel sprouts, adjuncts, some alcohol which is surprising at the low ABV.

Sweeter taste than the smell indicated. Tastes like grains, a little bit of unpleasant mustiness but could be much worse. Faint macro-euro hop taste. Very smooth finish, no yucky face for me.

Smooth mouthfeel, this is pretty undercarbonated which makes it go down fast when it's cold but I worry that it'll fail to cover up any grossness that pokes through as it warms. Slightly creamy, really very nice though.

Goes down very smoothly, quite drinkable. Loses some drinkability points for the price (not much higher than Hurricane or Magnum, but when I'm buying 40s every penny counts) and for the low-ish ABV, the other reason I drink malt liquor. Still, if you ice this, it goes down FAST -- in a contest, I watched two guys drink three 40s of this in under 7 minutes and they kept it down fine. Recommended, and just as good or better than bad macro lagers (Milwaukee's Best, etc.).

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.
