3.01/5  rDev +20.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served cold: Transferred from the fridge and into the freezer for 30 minutes

Look: Poured into a tulip glass, clear golden color, 1/2 finger of white head and streaming carbonation that ends quickly.

Smell: Hard to describe, very light smell typical of a lager, a little bit of wang but not offensive.

Taste: Light grainy is the best I can detect, mild sweet. neutral but pleasant. Clean aftertaste. Green bottle, but no skunk.

Feel: Crisp, good carbonation, a dry bite in the finish. Body is light but not annoyingly watery as I find a light beer can be.

Pairs most excellent with Cabot's Smokey Bacon White Cheddar Cheese and Popeye's

Overall: Fine as Vida G's backside, ok maybe that's alcohol talking.

Excellent American lager, not big on flavor, but the satisfaction comes from the feel, the crisp, the dry, the carbonation, which all equals easy drinking.

look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Look - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color, a finger of rocky white head, surprisingly good retention.
Aroma - Simple syrup, maybe some corn. Not a whole lot going on.
Taste - Grainy, pale malt, not as sweet as most malt liquors, clean dry aftertaste. Starts out like a typical lager but finishes like an ice beer.
Feel - Medium bodied, dry, lots of carbonation. Not syrupy at all.

Overall - Excellent malt liquor. Reminds me of myself... cheap, full of alcohol, but smooth as hell. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: One finger white head, pale yellow body.

Smell: Mild breadiness, mild sweet corn, a slight suggestion of grassy hops.

Taste: See above.

Feel: Medium-light body, medium carbonation, slightly sweet upfront with a dry finish.

Other: Almost identical to PBR (but with more flavor), making this a decent low-budget beer.

Like a lot of the previous reviews, I will mostly lean on memories with this one, although I do have a forty sitting in front of me at the moment. Freshman year if you had big mouths in your fridge, it was a blackout night. Mickey's was all about attitude to me, back in college when I thought that was cool. The pissed off green bee seems to have mellowed in recent years, but maybe that's just me.

Mellow and corny without being offensive or oversweet. I still find this quite drinkable when you want to have an uberswill evening. It doesn't look or smell good. That's not the deal. Quite good at its job.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Light clear gold with an aggressive pour giving about three fingers of a soapy crackling head that drops quickly. Lots of visible carbonation as well.

Smells sweet, almost candy like sweet? Not much else coming through.

Not much on the taste. Seems to follow the nose with that strange sweetness.

Mouth feel is not to heavy (thankfully) and finishes fairly easy.

I can remember drinking this from the big mouth bottles during several days while me and my friend rebuilt the engine for his 1972 Javelin project. Did not seem so bad than while we were freezing our asses off in the middle of the Colorado winter attempting to build a muscle car. Nowadays as an adult fast forwarded to some 30 plus years past that date I would have to say this beer tastes like crap. I really cannot wait to finish this 24 oz. can so I can look for a real beer in the fridge. God bless Mickey's for the memories (my friend has since passed, a result of mental issues and suicide) but I think this is one worth burying.
