I was somewhat disappointed since I thought the Triple Export was decent for 8.1% alcohol. I thought this would be similar, but has some kind of nasty quality to it that makes it unpleasant to drink, even for a buzz. I try to avoid this now.

Bottle share by Jared, it poured a very pale golden color and smelled and tasted like a sweet malty mess.

I drank a 40 of steel reserve. It got me drunk which is exactly what i wanted. Mission accomplished. Cigars for the whole team

Letís be honest: nobody is drinking Steel Reserve for the taste. These guys find their way into my beer stash every once and a while and, frankly speaking, I am looking for the buzz that accompanies my $1.29 purchase. That being said, and having tried quite a few malt liquors in my time, this really isnít that terrible. It provides a quick buzz and, if drank ice cold (and I mean cold, because if it gets warm it tastes terrible), itís actually quite drinkable. It looks half-decent when poured out of the can (but whats the point of that?) and smells like sweet corn. Not overly repulsive but certainly not a treat on the nose. Donít pick this up if you are any kind of beer snob because this is not for you. I like beer: I like all styles, all varieties, and that includes malt liquor. When money is tight or if Iím just in the mood for something proven and quick, Iíll go for this. Overall I gave this a 14/20 - this reflects itís style, not beer in general. It doesnít stack up to some of the better microbrews out there, but then again I donít expect it to. Drink cold and enjoy the ride.

24oz can by DEC3013. Nose barely there, a little grain, pours deep amber-leaning but still clear golden with a foamy large white head, light carb. Wow, lacing! And a lot of it (and legs!)! Taste is very sweet, faint floral and grain, bread, but a candyish fruit element creeping around and eroding the edges of my teeth. Light body a tick thicker than most watery malt likkas, smooth and surprisingly not fizzy. Alcohol hidden extremely well, as would be expected, but some of that is due to the cloy. Plus points for taking an untrodden path as far as this style goes, but the candyish sweetness is too much for me to pound, and even these modest trappings of sophistication are not enough to ward off the anticipated headache. I knew this couldnít be from the íburgh.

Rating this as a malt likka, it really isnít too bad. Can 24oz. Pours a clear orangish-yellow color with white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is pretty faint, but at least not offensive. A bit of warming alcohol in the flavor but masked well by the slight sweetness - wouldnt guess this bad boy is 8.1%. For $2.11 for the 211...you canít go wrong.

Can 710ml @ Hotel Room, Fairfield Inn, Placentia, CA
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, grain and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
