1.38/5  rDev -45%
look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

About time I get my malt liquor reviews in. These may be repetitive because I am not an expert in the style.

Fizzy white head. Color is a clear pale golden yellow.

Aroma: Much like the OE, malts and alcohol. Corn. Metallic flavors. Very bland. It does have some other adjunts and skunky flavor though.

Taste: Pretty much the same. Bready malts and cardboard staleness. Corn. Off flavors all around, this time being skunky.

Mouthfeel: Thin bodied, medium carbonation. Grainy and chewy. Ends bland.

Overall, not something I ever want to drink again.

Picked up a six pack of grenades for five bucks. Best by 8/6/12.

Looks like Highlife.

Bready, sweet, with some booze lingering in the back ground.

Malts, adjuncts, mild hop bitterness and faint alcohol in the finish.

Light, crisp, just the right amount of carbonation.

Mickey's is decent and worth what you pay for. A tasty cheap lager. It is like Highlife's gnarlier brother. Not bad.

12oz 'grenade' best by Jul 17 2012

Look is a pale yellow with a thin film that barely passes as a head. Smell is typical adjunct smell: corn and skunky grains, maybe a touch of hops. Taste is crisp grain, some corn, barley, and a slight hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated, without the watery feel that you might expect.

Overall this is my preferred 'forty' and not a bad cheap brew. Give it a shot.

S: Smells like my garden pond after winter.

A: Looks like a normal golden lager. Good head and fine, intricate lacing which dries and clings to the glass.

T: A fizzy lager type drink with a strong white bread flavour. Really not all that bad though.

O: Really innofensive but not in the slightest bit moorish. Interesting lacing effect. Now I know how malt liquor tastes.
