Backlog. 24 oz can. A lot like the Olde English HG800 I tried earlier, but more grainy, more watery, and it doesn’t have that unpleasant metallic flavor. This beer also has and retains a surprisingly good head. Again, I’m surprised this didn’t rank lower. I was expecting garbage and got merely refuse.

You have to respect the dedication of a brewery to try and make Mickey's even shittier, but they just might have succeeded in this quest, intentional or not. A slightly darker yellow, unattractive nonetheless, almost no head formed. Aroma is a hot alcohol amount seemingly in the 10% range, but no, this is sub 6% apparently?

Taste is all alcohol and bitter twang resulting from long boil high alpha acid hops and almost no malt bill. The mouthfeel might be the worst part as it just seems like it gets warm quick and even more oppressive with each drink. Corn and corn syrup all over this one.
