2.08/5 rDev -17.1%
Appearance is a light golden yellow with a thick crisp head and fair lace for a malt liquor. Smell is slightly sweet with corn, yeasty with hops. Taste has the adjunct flavor to it, a little metallic and stale hops. Mouthfeel is is light with a good amount of carbonation. Not one I would willingly buy again, it kinda left a light bitter metallic aftertaste I didn't quite care for.

Found this in a large 24oz. collector can, that I didn't collect. Used 1/3 of it for a poultry dish and sampled the rest.
It poured a nice darker shade of pale. A white head that maintained ok with just alittle fizz. Carbonation was plenty but not overdone.
The aroma was abit typical. Grainny, hey like.
The taste starts with a sweet maltiness, followed by a quick hop bittering crispness. Then the grains take over as does the metallicness of the can. That mouthfeel lingers on abit after the drink.
Drinkability, so so. I don't see me rushing back for another.
By the way, the chicken liked it. It came out, pretty good.

the official beer of my wife's Aunts funeral...we drank at least 8 cases of this in roughly 1.5 days...back in 1998
well it certainly acts like a macro....lager amber...poor head..average lacing.
very sweet..guessing corn syrup aroma...some slight maltiness as well.
same corn sweetness on the intial swig...some slight bready malt come thru the sweetness afterward.
fine level of carbonation gives this beer a smoother mouthfeel that one would expect.
would certainly be spending my hard earned coin on Old Milwaukee at roughly 60% the price before I buy more of this. Fitting it comes in a small gernade sized bottle as i can imagine you could get bombed drinking more than 6 in a night

Good ol' Mickey's malt liquor. Poured into a standard pint glass.
Supder duper clear body that is straw to golden in color. About a half inch of head. Some alright lacing left behind.
Smells of minerals and cereal. That's about it.
Tastes of grain, cereal, corn, and a hint of sugar. No hops. Kind of like Coors Light only a little stronger.
Quite light in body, well carbonated. Standard macro american type lager feel.
Pretty easy to drink. One of my favorites in college.

Drank from a 40oz bottle. This is a great malt liquor but somewhat expensive for the low ABV.
A- Looks clear yellow with lots of carbonation and a foaming head
S- Smells like corn and wheat and a hint of alcohol
T- Tastes like it smells but with more of a wheat bread on the tongue and alcohol in the aftertaste.
M- Feels grainy and too alcoholic. OK carbonation covers some nasty feel
D- Drinks good enough to get me trashed very quickly

40oz bottle (what else) poured into pint glass, no freshness date.
A: Pours a clear yellow with a decent sized 2 finger head that fades into a very thin cap. Nice carbonation that should keep the flavors moving around the glass.
S: Big odor of sweet corn and hints of malt, pretty straightforward, but still a pretty decent scent for a malt liquor, not very appatizing but not terrible.
T/MF: Off taste of adjunct corn and rice upfront with a decent kick from the carbonation that spreads this flavor throughout the mouth. The carbonation spreads the taste off the beer evenly over the mouth but the flavor ain't that great so poo. It finishes quite sweet and clean with no traces of hot alcohol that is distinctive of this style.
D: One of the better malt liquor options out there, but it is rather pricey at 2.50 a 40oz bottle while other higher content 40s run almost a dollar or more cheaper, If you want the Cadillac of gas station malt liquor look no futher than Mickey's.

Enjoyed in the iconic wide-mouthed green bottle with riddle: "2 + picture of a hen + a picture of two animals that look like either cats or pigs + a picture of a winged insect" ... A fly! Got it! Extremely pale (just barely yellow) and uber-carbonated malt liquor with a sweet dank malt aroma like an old grainery full of corn husks. Ample corn on the nose is followed by the same on the palate, very sweet like old corn or corn syrup. A little fruity as well, maybe some almost vanilla-like floral notes. Extremely thin bodied and recalls soda water in this regard. Finish also pretty sweet with no discernible hop presence and a few fusel aromatics ... Not as much of the latter as higher ABV malt liquors. In all honesty this is not horrible if you realize beforehand what this beer style is supposed to embody: A sweet alcoholic tasting fizz bomb for mass consumption. I am tempted to try a Colt .45 now.
