look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

A - Typical see through yellow with a massive frothy white head. Leaves small lacing.

S - Corn adjunct, rice adjunct, creamed corn. No surprise there.

T - Heavy, nasty creamed corn flavor with a stale rice adjunct finish that is almost unbearable.

M - Heavily carbonated with a heavy creamy body.

O - Overall, This beer was completely one dimensional. One smell, One flavor, And a mouthfeel that follows. Oh well, I only paid $1.25 for a 24oz can and I had to eventually review such terrible brews so that I can give even greater appreciation to the better beers out there. Will I buy it again? Absolutely not. i dreaded finishing this stuff so much that I actually elected to pour the remaining 18 ounces down the sink.

My Favorite Malt. Not a lot of alc. content but enough. the Grenades arent available locally (Bought in another state) but I have had the 40's and 24 OZ cans here. Tastes like Heineken. Smooth and cheap. lots of carbonation. I like Mickeys.

Note: I review for the style. I refuse to let my prejudices slant any review. Nothing worse than the typical beer snob reviewing a Malt Liquor, same for your Malt Liquor drinker reviewing a craft brew.

Sometimes I just need a 40oz. to keep it gangster. And my 40 of choice is always Mickey's.

The key to Mickey's is to drink it really fast - it has to stay cold. If you can manage to down your entire 40oz. while it's still very cold, it almost has a Heineken skunky taste. I am not a fan of malt liquor, but a cold Mickey's really doesn't taste like a malt. If you let it get warm....prepare to pay the price. N A S T Y.

I'm finishing off a Mickey's 40 as we speak. It's just what I needed after a long day at work. The last few sips are still ice cold...and it doesn't disappoint.

A- Typical for a malt liquor. Not impressive. Nothing special, unattractive yellow and unattractive haze. Small head slears quickly. Appears watery in the glass. If we were grading the bottle I'd give it a much higher score. The Mickeys hand grenade looks pretty cool.
S- smells of filler and corn syrup. BUT, it doesn't smell as offensive as some malt liquors which to me smell like they will taste like BS.
T- pretty mellow but that's not surprising in this category. Nor is it surprising of the brewery (Miller). Taste sweet but taste of corn.
M- Like water.

Overall- okay heres the kicker with this Mickeys. It's actually not bad for the price. If you want to get loaded for not a lot of money I'd probably go Mickeys. Beer pong yes. Drink with a fine meal, no. In its price bracket, this is a personal favorite. I would take this over ice house, natty, Coors, miller or any other low priced beverage.

Pours rather pale golden with thin white head of bubbles. Nose is light, clean, with a hint of citrus. More noticeable when drinking from widemouth bottle, oddly enough. Light cereal grain on nose too. On the palate there's a spritzer/sparkling water character to it with light malt flavors and slightly herbal to metallic hops. Some bitterness. Thin bodied. Goes down easier than water.

24oz can to pint.

Pours a light straw color with a fluffy, but coarse, white head that lays tinsel lacing around the top of the glass as it deflates. Not a bad look. Definitely the first time I've ever poured out a Mickey's. 3.5

Musty aroma with some damp smells of wet grain and cooked corn. Light lemon/citrus note, possibly from some hops. 2.5

Some fusel alcohol, cooked vegetables, musty grains, and a minty tea-like hop. Somewhat medicinal. Band-Aid flavor is here and there. Finishes like toothpaste, with some light bitterness to follow. Watery tasting, but expected to have been cut-back. 2.0

Feels sudsy, but it has some body to it. Not terribly difficult to drink. 2.5

Rating 3.5 as a Malt Liquor. Mickey's is the way to go for cheap.
