1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Another blast from the past…the legendary green 40. Corny sweetness with sickening malt aftertaste. I got the job done and then some.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Old rating. Good on a hot day. Sweet without being unpleasant. Almost like agave nector. Cheap buzz.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Purchased in big can, with the compulsory brown paper bag. Light yellow colour with lots od suds. Very malty and a taste dominated by corn syrup flavours. Hardly any bitterness, but fairly strong alcohol taste. Actually not as bad as I thought it would be, better than some poor lagers that I have sampled.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Food Pantry Waikiki 221214. Clear in the glass with a scuzzy white head. Very basic aroma and flavour. Cool looking keg shaped bottle.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Grenade bottle. Wide mouth for fast slamming. This actually wasn’t bad, barely distinguishable from a pale lager. Slightly sweeter, slightly more skunky. I liked it.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
DATE TASTED: October 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Ommegang pokal... OCCASION: O’s in the ALCS for the first time since 1997--probably the last time I drank Mickey’s... APPEARANCE: brassy golden body that matches the translucence of water; snow-white sudsy head fizzles to a sickly residual; vibrant bubbles at the pour evaporate immediately... AROMA: pitchy, astringent malts; its appeal is purely in the twist cap nostalgia.. PALATE: fizzy, rather oily and sift; gassy, beefy aftertaste; thin and drinkable....TASTE: puckerishly sweet, with a water hose copper coupling overbearing flavor;; some champagne (!) notes; simply not flavorful ... OVERALL: Mickey’s will always have a place in my heart--and on our college pong table--but this is a rough one to sip with any sustained interest...

Another fine hotel malt Likka tick had to be covert sneak by boss’s room out hotel to gas station. Right out of the 22 ounce can comes a big nose of sloppy grains, corn, tin. Taste pretty much follows with a light body, mild booze burn. Pretty basic gas station prima pils.

"i really thought this would be better. it was my favorite of the 40 oz as a teen, but for the life of me i don’t know why...not that any of them are good. 10 year’s later I thought it’d be fun to try again. Holy crap...too strong to be pee-pee water, but the taste is horrible!"

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m assuming this is the beer that’s called Mickey’s Bigmouth for those wide mouth bottles. Def a beer designed for quick drinking and a fast cheap buzz. Sweet and not unpleasant tasting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
40oz bottle, poured to a snifter for rating 1000. Tried to find a tiny paper bag to wrap around the glass, but the hell with it, I’m a rebel. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma: creamed corn, apples, toast -- not unlike many pale lagers I’ve ticked for some random reason or another. Taste is sweet, simple. Honestly, totally fine. I’m wasting so much time and money when I could just be drinking this.
