0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
My blood sugar suddenly went through the roof a few months ago. I had been drinking Steel Reserve for years as a diebetic with no I’ll effect on my blood sugar. I slammed my diet down harder and harder until the last few weeks where. I’ve been eating only meat. A few months ago Miller bought Steel Reserve so they could pour a ton of sugar in it. I never would have found out if the store hadn’t ran out of it. My blood sugar went back to normal and I’m off my medication again. I drink a different brand now, and I urge all diebetics to avoid Steel Reserve.

Cheap as fuck and as soon as you taste it you start to feel buzzed cant beat it for the price it taste great at about 32 Fahrenheit or 1-2 Celsius if any warmer I always eat something spicy while drinking so I can keep the taste out of my mouth because I’ve been drinking it for three years now and Steel reserve above 50 degrees is still vomit inducing very bitter, full body, thick feel, average carbonation, bitter,

Well had to do it. Classic for old school brew pounding. Not much smell other than metallic and malt. Flavor is classic malt liquor with a bread and malt taste. Not for the faint hearted,

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
24oz can. Pours a clear golden color with a decent head thatfades quickly. Aroma is sweet with grain. Taste is similar with a candy sweetness and grass. Mild bitterness and a sweet sticky finish. Light body, smooth and much too sweet. I guess the sweetness is there to try and hide the ABV.

40 ounce bottle picked up in jest and then poured into a pilsener glass. Pours a translucent copper with a frothy white head of foam. Smells grainy and sweet with some grassy qualities. Despite the clear bottle, it has escaped getting skunked somehow. Taste is sweet and a little grassy. Not a whole lot to complain about, it just isn’t really my thing. Big body with medium carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 STEEL RESERVE W/ A LIME - There are two kinds of beer drinking - serious craft brew joint visits (tour de beir) and everyday slogging. Corona (for example) strongly suggests a lime in the mix.
OK - if we are masking the critical factors with lime, then all bets are off. Are we "drinquing bier" or drinkin’? If the answer is #2, then relax, save the money, drop in a lime and ENJOY. With the addition of a lime, they all taste good. So - if I’m droppin’ in a lime do I wanna’ pay $9.00 or $3.88?
I’ve been drinking beer since Coors was only available in Colorado. Steel Reserve & lime is as good as any beer with lime. Save the money & get the buzz ,-\

22 FL OZ ($2.29) tastes like a metal can. very nasty beer only up side is the high proofage. good if you’re setting off to get drunk on a budget.

Much malted grain, likely including others than barley, some hops, yeast and water - then let ferment. What can be wrong? Deviation from German law is likely that other grains may be included, but this is not Germany. Regardless, this is an US interpretation close to German "Starkbier" (strong-beer), and nothing wrong with it. Remember, beer is "liquid bread" in Germany, not a luxury article. As such it is unpretentious, simple and good. Liked it.
