This had more appeal when I was underage and could drink it out of the green big mouth bottles. I have only seen it in cans recently. Sweet corn and light grain lead the flavor and the aroma and there are a handful of hops lending some bitterness. Its alcohol used to be its main selling point. The flavor is not much.

No question, Mickey's looks damn fine. Brilliantly clear brass with a sticky white foam cap. Now I'm thirsty.

Crushed cereal and corn syrup. Just as it should smell.

Corn syrup and corn syrup. Just as it should taste. Maybe a pinch of crushed grain. Wow. Really pushing the boundaries here.

Light, clean, smooth,a little slick, definitely sweet. Almost zero bitterness. Boom.

Hey, at $0.59 per 12 oz., what do you want? Stop rating beers comparing to your favorites of different styles. This is a MALT LIQUOR folks. And as a malt liquor, it's pretty damn good. Otherwise it would already be off the shelves. Cheers.

Deep amber color and sudsy head. The aroma is an sweet malt-like one, but faint and off a bit. Hop bitterness is essentialy non existent and the flavor is sweet with a metallic, malt body. Carbination is low. This brew becomes less attractive as it warms.

What the pale yellow beverage lacks in appearance, is more than made up for by the wonderful 12oz grenade that it comes in.

Smells fairly clean, a bit of corn, almost a floral characteristic.

Taste is slightly sweet corn.

Minimal carbonation, relatively crisp, and avoids the oiliness that is often found with malt beverages.

For what it is, it's pretty solid.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

The beer pours a very clear, light yellowish/tan color with minimal head and almost no lacing.

The smell reminds me a slightly fresher version of the dead Bud Light cans I had to throw away from golf carts when I worked at a golf course as a kid. I'm also getting some corn and maybe a little lemon.

The taste is also very corn heavy with a hint of breadiness and brightness before quickly dying to a sweet, bland finish. The flavor goes away very quickly.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and slightly sticky.

Overall the flavor isn't bad but the finish is terrible. It's drinkable but not for 40oz.

A smoother tasting Malt Liquor. I do not know if it is top fermented or not, which I understand traditional malt liquors are/were.
Most times, the ABV determines whether it is a malt liquor nowadays.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Clear golden, initial frothy head

The nose is quite pleasant, corn, a bit of floral hop, slight grassiness

Initial sweetness quickly souring to a grassy and metallic aftertaste. On the whole, not far off many adjunct lagers.

Well carbonated.

Certainly not the bottom of this style, but In the future I'll probably save my calories for something worth drinking.

L) Pours a clear straw color with a effervescent white head. No lacing and poor retention.

S) Nothing really off-putting on the nose. Sweet and grainy.

T) Not horrid for the style. Again, sweet and grainy, with a slight grass-like bitterness on the very end of the brew.

F) Crisp with a surprisingly full body for a cheap 40. Can't complain as far as the style goes.

O) Is this a good beer? No not really, but as far as American Malt Liquor 40s go, it really isn't that stylistically punishable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Drank from a glass 40 ounce bottle. Scores and review are based within the style.

Look - By far my favorite of the malt liquor bottles. The green glass, simple label, and hornet mascot all comes together in a quite appealing package. However, the green glass does stop the drinker from getting a good view of the liquid inside, which might be seen as a good thing to some.

Smell - No offensive notes, and even has a bit of life and character. Some hints of wet grass, fresh sweetcorn, a bit of smoked meat maybe? All the smells are fairly faint, but nonetheless, they are there.

Taste - Surprisingly good. Has the typical malt liquor sweetness, but it is cut and balanced with a healthy bit of bitterness. More in league with the adjunct lagers.

Feel - The carbonation was a bit much. It made me very burpy and left a nice tower of foam in my bottle every time I took a sip.

Overall - Much better than other malt liquors I've tried. Almost like a beer that wasn't good enough for AAL status but overshoots the malt liquor category.

Sadly I can only find the 24oz cans here in Waco, so no cool puzzles or grenades for me.

Mickey's is the one malt liquor you don't immediately associate with the dude with the revoked license toting home a case on Friday night. Something about it retains an air of class. Maybe it's the minimalistic can with almost no information on it, not even the ABV. As it's weaker than its brethren, Mickey's makes a good chill drink rather than just something to get smashed off of super fast. The taste and feel is malty and syrupy, almost as if the liquid itself feels thicker than average. This is one I still pick up every now and then as it's very cheap and has a nice taste. Overall, Mickey's is humble and doesn't oversell itself, and is worth a try.

One of the better malt liquors.

A dark yellow color, not as dark as some malt liquors. Not much head or lacing.

Not much of a smell, same as other malt liquors but not as corny.

Taste follows the smell. Not too sweet. Closer to an standard adjunct lager in taste. Some corn and malt flavor. No noticeable alcohol since it's a 5.6 ABV. Slight hop flavor.

It's still syrupy like most malt liquors but not as much as some others, especially the higher ABV ones.

Overall very good for what it is. The 12 oz bottles have an interesting shape.
