soulgrowl (52) - Kitakyushu-shi, - MAY 7, 2008
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.

Another blast from the past…the legendary green 40. Corny sweetness with sickening malt aftertaste. I got the job done and then some.

Old rating. Good on a hot day. Sweet without being unpleasant. Almost like agave nector. Cheap buzz.

Cimbasso (328) - - JAN 26, 2015
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.

mkel07 (3922) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2014
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.

MacBoost (1425) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
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.

Dacrza (571) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
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...

UDBeernut (1959) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2014
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!"

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.

Prufrockstar (1329) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2014
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.
