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. Itís 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 Iíd 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 donít regret buying 24 ounces of this stuff (it was a buck-fifty, after all), but that should be just about enough for me.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
40, paid completely in change. Served super cold.
Aroma: Cereals. Not super corny. Not even skunky! Pleasant surprise, considering the green bottle. Really not that bad. Which kind of shocks me.
Appearance: Clear, pale yellow. White head that quickly fizzes away.
Taste: Considering what I was preparing myself for mentally, this wasnít too bad. Definitely better than Olde-E. Just cereals; no real hop profile. Tastes like a common, run of the mill macro beer.
Palate: Slightly watery, light bodied. Not much else to say.
Overall: You know, considering what other malt liquors are out there, Mickeyís isnít as bad as it could be. That being said, itís not that great. But hey, if itís two days before you get paid, and youíve got two dollars to buy beer with, a 40 of Mickeyís isnít too horrible.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Actually not too bad for a malt liquor. Has a slightly sweet/fruity flavor and good carbonation. That being said, itís not horrible but definitely not on the same page as a good microbrew.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I wasnít sure how to grade this beer.I have to admit, just looking at the bottle I didnít have high hopes going into my first bottle of Mickeyís. When I opened it the smell lowered my expectations even further. It brought me back to $1 beer night at the club as a teenager. Except... the beers there didnít smell this bad. Just plain skunk.
Now that said tasting it, it tasted alright. A bit sweet and a bit different... but not really anything Iíd get excited about. A weird slightly different flavor... what is that flavor... ah right corn and rice. Not typically used to that.
I can drink the whole bottle, no problem. Iím not sure how bad a beer has to be to not be able to at least finish it though. But I would never ever want to get it again.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Stubby bottle. Rating #811. Clear light gold color with a small white head. Sweet light corn aroma with a bit of skunk, not that nice really. Nasty skunk flavor as well, not that good. (2717)

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
You dont pour Mickeyís into a glass (who knows/cares what it looks like)...you drink it from the ígrenadeí and ponder over the puzzle under the cap (appearance).. and then preferably smash it behind behind a dumpster or some other place you throw it (which is what occurred the last time I had this). Not much aroma - grain, but in offensive, which is a plus. Same with flavor - corn, grain, water. Goes down quick and easy (is this not the goal here?) Honestly, its not half bad...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From notes: Poured clear straw color, with a 3-finger white head that was fairly thin. Aroma of yeast, with notes of alcohol and corn, along with a slight skunkiness. Light body, somewhat thin & watery. Flavor of corn, with some alcohol bite to it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle - pours clear and pale gold with lots of white head that takes it time to disappear, leaving decent lacing. Nose is corn and cardboard. Flavor adds some caramel malts. Light sweetness with more pronounced bitterness. Not as brutal as most malt liquor beers but more akin to a stronger pale lager. Better than I remember.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer smells completely like the negative alcohol side of beer, and the color of the beer is yellow with a prominent head that dissipates quickly. The beer is quite sour and salty with a palate thatís a combination of a thin body, an average carbonation, and a long finish donít make this beer one you want to drink too often.
