1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma: Nutty malts act as a base, plus a light citrusy aroma. It’s also somewhat vinous, in a way.
Appearance: Golden yellow, apple juice-colored body, white, soapy head with surprisingly good retention. Really not bad-looking, has more of a presence than I’d expect.
Flavor: Bready, yeasty, oddly doughy. Taste of rice, cornmeal, and canned peas, especially present in the unusually dry-yet-white-grape-ish finish. Kind of funky and too sweet, but not particularly offensive. Bland indeed, but for $1.50 you could go a lot blander.
Palate: Meh. Not much going on here. Very light but not especially refreshing.
Overall: I certainly don’t regret buying 24 ounces of this stuff (it was a buck-fifty, after all), but that should be just about enough for me.

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.

Just a higher alcohol version of a macro brewery. Real gainy and no hops, dry tangy bitterness. Not good but had to rate it.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle on a picnic. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Flavor is full but lots of corn. Some floral aroma. Decent for what it is.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Jaune pâle avec très peu de mousse. L’arôme est comme un lager avec les céréales mais rein d’autre. Le goût est des céréales léger et très peu de sucre. Quand il se réchauffe même un peu elle devienne dégueux. Du malt acerbe et papier du carton.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This pours a clear, yellow color with a slight foamy head. The aroma is mild with cheap grains and yeast. The taste is smooth, flat and surprisingly flavorful for a cheap malt liquor. There’s weak grains throughout and finishes fairly crisp and clean. After a while the aftertaste takes on a bit of an awkward finish but overall fairly decent for its style.

Had when in college: pours a clear light yellow with white head. Not quite a fine malt liquor.
