I wanted to review this beer out of the 12 oz. little 'grenade' bottles. Instead this is coming from a 24 oz. can. Mickey's is always better out of glass.

A: I poured some out but I was reluctant to do so. Mickey's is a beer that should be consumed from it's original container. Pretty much yellow, not light or dark, just yellow. Sits still in the glass. Light lacing. Head disappeared quickly which surprised me because like most Miller beers Mickey's is quite foamy.

S: Not much of anything. Metallic and bitter. The sweetness of other mass produced malts is missing. It's an inoffensive smell. Much lighter than most other mass produced products having the same ABV.

T: Boring. Inoffensive. Watery. I've had light beers more flavorful than this. Light grain. Light bitterness. Finishes with nothing but a little bitterness on your tongue.

M: The best part of Mickey's. Surprisingly thick. Medium-high carbonation that leaves a little sting. Creamy and slightly oily.

O: Mickey's is best out of glass: 12 oz. or 40 oz. I don't know what it is about cans but it seems to ruin what flavor and characteristic there is. I've had some amazing tasting Mickey's before, but not this one. Considering how mass produced this is and how cheap it is there may be some variation from batch to batch as well. Mickey's is available pretty much everywhere making it an inoffensive choice when nothing else seems appealing. In the malt liquor world the low 5.6% ABV and higher than average price make this an amateur's choice.

Appearance - Pours a clear dark golden/copper color with a thin, white frothy head. The lacing is pretty good.

Small - The malts smell really good.. Has a sweet aroma, with corn and malts being most dominant.

Taste - Mostly the same as the smell. Quite sweet, very malty and corny, and also has a buttery biscuit flavor to it. It has a weird bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium/light body with high carbonation.

Overall - This is one of the few malt liquors I've ever liked. It tends to give me heartburn though.. Not like other beers.
