40. Fuck yeah. Paper bag with no head. Good. Flavors of malt and liquor. Seriously. Mildy sweet, a touch of hops. Damn near perfect.

Can. The following is a compilation of a dozen peoples thoughts who shared this brew with me at my first (and perhaps last?) Malt Liquor Dexterity Games Tournament to celebrate my birthday. Keeping in mind that most of the participants are not regular beer raters, here we go: clear medium gold, corny cereal, cardboard, relatively clean actually, do I get a t-shirt for this?, Im so tired, hmmmmm ok, seriously not impressive, forgettable, maybe Im drunk but this is drinkable, hated this Disney ice capade show, Im done.

snoworsummer (5327) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2017
From a can. Pours clear gold with a very thin head. Tastes like corn, dough, and pale malts. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like pale malts, corn, and dough.

Can. Pours clear gold. Aroma and flavor are corn, pale malt, funky lager yeast, and faint floral notes. Medium body.

crossovert (12017) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 710ml can thanks sledutah. This is an unfortunately elusive malt for me as it is not available in anything besides cans and quarts and is not available anywhere near me. It is a shame because this is a grizzlier, rougher version of mickeys. Mickeys is definitely brewed in multiple facilities and this tastes like non-grenade mickeys; the grenade seems like the best formula of mickeys. This is very similar to any mickeys you will get in cans just a bit bigger in corn/malt taste.

freekyp (2061) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Ok. So for what this is, not bad. The aroma is the worst part. Grassy with some chicken stock notes. Smells worse than it tastes. Pours an attractive deep golden with a big resilient frothy white head. Some light malty notes with a small amount of grassy hops. Finishes clean and dry. Its a malt liquor, but not nearly the worst one. Better than the non-ice version of Mickeys.

ffbot (385) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2015 IMO the best malt liquor. Something about ice brewing...its not just a fad/cheap gimmick....It does make it taste different. I think "rougher" is really how it tastes. Less sweetness, has more bite, kind of almost tastes like legit beer?! Note that with malt liquor, rougher is better since normally it just tastes sweet and boring

Bulk_Carrier (4539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a basic clear yellow color with a fast rising carbonation trying to fill a rapidly dieing bubbly white head. There wasnt any lacing. The smell had a blast of booze in the face with a sweetness that came across as sugar. The taste followed the nose. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with not much of a sessionable quality to it because of the large amount of sugar involved in hitting my tongue the way it does. Overall, more malt liquor. Well, Im not exactly sure what else to say other than I probably wouldnt have this again.

Sledutah (7242) - Utah, USA - JUN 17, 2014
24oz can from the state store
Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head that sticks around for a while, good lacing. Mild aroma of grains, corn and malts. Taste is grainy, sweet malts, bready and apple
Not bad

Darkmagus82 (2302) - - MAY 23, 2014
Transferred from BA review on 3-7-12 - Poured from 40 into pint glass Appearance - Pours a medium golden color with a billowy head that fades quite fast. With the head dissipating there is actually quite a surprising amount of lacing on this brew. Smell - The aroma is very light. There is the slightest bit of corn with an ever so slightly caramel aroma present; very weak overall. Taste - The taste starts out very sweet; corn and a little bit of caramel (just as the nose suggested). At the very end of the flavor there is an ever so light hoppy and sweet flavor on the tongue. They are very light (very light) and mainly toffee and citrus in nature. It would be quite pleasant, but unfortunately there is a rather unpleasant stale aftertaste that is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a very moderate level of carbonation. It is slightly more creamy feeling then would be expected, but still very appropriate. Overall - Slightly beer in some regards then the standard malt, but in some way worse. Not bad, but really not good either.
