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!

Can from a shady liquor store, the one time I don't check the date, the can is old. "NOV14 11" printed on the bottom. I was fooled since it wasn't dusty...

Pale straw gold, urine shade with rapid rising trails of carbonation. Compact white foam biscuit lid up top, slow to settle, leaving some lace in the glass, and an ever present veil of skim on the surface (surprisingly).

Smells like adjunct city, corn and possibly rice, rather sweet with apple notes from the yeast and some metallic, musty dishrag minerality. Wafting notes of misspent college nights and bad judgement.

Sweet taste, pretty astringent as it warms, cereal grain, wet paper, vague fleeting apple. Fizzy but relatively clean. In the malt liquor continuum, Mickey's falls a bit short of center.
