I love Mickey's it's hands down my favorite malt liquor. I've had it from the plastic 40 oz. The grenades and poured into a pilsner, a jar, and wine glasses it is a great brew.

The look is the most unappealing part its darkish sraw.

Smell is skunky malt and a bit of hops with slight corn.

Taste is about the same. Very skunky after taste.

The feel is a a decent carbonation with the slightest water.

Overall I absolutely love this beer I would choose this over any macro or any malt any day.

One of the better malt liquors. It tastes like a really good adjunct lager. There's nothing to compare it to other than Private Stock and Colt 45 and it's been tee than those. I'll always enjoy a Mickey's!

When I drink cheap beer it's usually Miller High Life because they use champagne yeast in the brewing process and the fizziness enhances the flavor. I also prefer the corn flavor of Miller products to the rice flavor of Anheuser Busch.

Mickey's tastes almost the same as Miller High Life. It's a decent cheap beer. The green color of the bottles is unappetizing but that's the only negative thing I can say. There's no pucker up weird aftertaste or any other negative effects.

Can't tell you what it looks like as I have never poured this Malt Liquor into a glass ever in my life. Though I can tell you that it smells fine and taste better than most of the others in its class. Won't hurt your wallet and good enough.

Poured from the infamous 12 OZ big mouth bottle right into my pie hole. The appearance is a clear golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is basic American Malt Liquor. The taste is a notch up on most malt liquors, I rate this in the same class as Colt 45 and Private Stock, I consider them uhhmm, err top shelf in the malt liquor world.

Poured from the giant 32 ounce plastic jug into a nonic pint glass. Good till July 11th 2016. Pulled from the back of the shelf booyah!

Deep clear brass body, quite shiny with minimal and slow rising carbonation. Bleach bright white solid three finger head, that settles to a big bowled puck and some nice thick coating lacing. Quite a decent looking beer.

Nice quite basic cereal grain and mild corn aroma. Some faint toast, no hop angle, but a mix of pasty sugar a bit as well. Really solid for what it is actually not boozy either. No skunking either from the plastic thin green bottle.

Palate manges no too many surprises, with the exception of tolerance. Clean first thick sip but without the big sugars or fussel alcohol burn. Corny like sweetness a bit, with some interesting sugar like aftertaste that lingers. Interesting aftertaste that seems to mix some adjunct sweetness and some decent grain quality in the mix, it just barely hints at toast.

Interesting animal in malt liquor vein, sort of in the right place between a step up from your regular adjunct lager, but not jumping into drying overly sweet or alcohol stink malt liquor excess.

The beer is clear and a straw color with a thin white fizzy head. You can see the carbonation bubbles rising. The beer has no scent. The beer taste like corn and has little to no hop flavor. You are unable to taste in alcohol. The beer coats the mouth and is easy to drink.

This beer is awesome. The first taste you get is just a typical light beer taste. However the after taste is really sweet. It's so good! Do not think this is bad beer because of the cheap price.
