Sampled 9/29/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass. It's been over 20+ years since I had one of these. Comes in a cool green 'barrel' bottle with a wide cap. Doesn't have the alcohol content listed. Probably around 5.5% I would think.

Pours a clear golden-yellow with a 2+-finger white foamy head. Left lots of lacing when sipped. Good carbonation. The aroma was of grains with a light 'skunky' smell. The taste was better than the smell and wasn't as harsh I thought it might be for a 'malt liquor.

I've never poured this out into a glass but always drank from the green stumpy bottle.

Smell for me, basically, is sweet malt and lager. Nothing offensive at all considering it comes out of a green bottle. And never was.

Taste is a not overly sweet malt and maybe some corn adjunct.

Malt beverage on the heavier side of medium. Otherwise crisp and clean.

Every now and then at a summer bbq, someone pulls out a Mickey's Big Mouth from the way back machine. Had a lot of these in the 80's and have always been impressed with their "ahead of their time" innovated bigger mouth format. Hard to session this but always fun to drink and hey, @ $4 a 6pk who could go wrong.
