Grim Reaper's Eulogy

Known as the "grenade" for its bottle's appearance, Mickeys Malt Liquor is one of those distinct throw back beers from bygone days.  It's in the same category as the Schlitz Malt Liquor "Bull" and Haffenreffer's "Mean Green" whereas any frat boy with pocket change looking for a cheap buzz, is the target market.

It is not without any merit.  This little pocketful of dynamite will fit neatly in the cooler and won't weigh you down.  It's pretty easy to swill out of the large mouthed, chugger style opening.  They even have rebuses under the cap to entertain you once the buzz hits.  And when the buzz does kick in, you'll be glad they are pictures, (not complicated things like words!)  At a mere 5.6% ABV, it will hit you like a UFC fighter.  Seriously, some of those guys are pitchmen for this little stinger.

You should be getting the picture of where this fits into your beer drinking escapades by now.  So, get stung if you will, but The Reaper has warned you!  Use care in handling these grenades.

Pairing Tip - - - This brew goes well with Asprin or Ibuprofen.
