Above average head retention for a malt liquor, its still yellow and clear but almost looks like a real beer. bit of corn in the nose but pretty faint. Pretty modest taste with no hop presence ( as expected). Easy to drink as long as its cold. Not sure who would drink this all the time.

The best thing about Mickey's is its cool shaped, green bottle with the wide mouth. As for the beer ... meh. It's harmless, virtually tasteless American beer. Refreshing and light. Certainly nothing fancy. If offered one, I'd take it. Put it in a blind taste test with PBR, Coors, Red Stripe, or a half a million other similar beers, and I could not pick it out.

12oz hand grenade into a pint glass.

Pours a clear pale straw yellow with a 1.5 finger head. Really good head retention and lacing for being a cheap adjunct lager. Some of the best I have seen in the style.

Aroma has tons of cooked vegetable and some Corn. There is caramel in there along with a faint hint of wet grassy hops. Not bad.

The flavor has a not so nice cardboard/plastic note but it fades the warmer the beer gets. Some caramel and creamed corn and cooked vegetables. Hop flavor is very faint and grassy with bitterness being light. Mouthfeel is more full than a typical AAL finishing slightly sticky and a little sweet.

Overall, not a great beer by any means but one of the best malt liquors out there. More flavor than many macros and cheap to boot. Worth picking up if you are drinking on a budget.
