Drink this to get drunk, folks, and drink it quickly... it tastes AWFUL! Thankfully, the high ABV level makes it only necessary to down one!

this is NOT meant to be enjoyed by a Connoisseur of beer and at the same time it is not Miller High Life (if you know what I mean). For a malt liquor it has a sweet taste, better that O.E. Its main purpose is to give an 8.1% kick in a 40 oz. serving. And if that is what you are looking for than Steel Reserve is your 40 in a brown paper bag.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Poured dark golden with a big head that died quickly. The expected alcohol-heavy malt liquor aroma prevails. The beer is extremely sugary with the alcoholic content, flat and acidic. Not as bad as I expected, but still pretty wretched.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This brew poured a medium white head of small bubbles. It has a transparent golden body with carbonation and a hoppy aroma. It's hoppy taste was smooth with a bit of tang to the aftertaste. It is an easy to drink beer that you can still taste the alcohol in.

a decent beer for getting a bit pished. far smoother than you would expect for a strong malt.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This brew poured a medium white somewhat creamy head. There was virtually no lacing on the sides of my glass. There was carbonation rising to the top. Somewhat of a sweet aroma to it. I was not impressed by this brew at all.

It gets its job done, but it gets nasty if it's not done fast enough. This is just barely above other malt liquors but it's still no St Ides. Grainy, somewhat sulfuric, metallic. Very cheap in Texas.

The only thing that saves this beer is that it looks better and more expensive than it is. Other than that, you're better off drinking anything but this.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This stuff tastes terrible. There is no one character that is able to overcome the overpowering awefulness of this brew. I really think malt liquors are far and away my least favorite style, to date. It is thick tasting and kind of sweet but not good sweet, bad sweet. The one saving grace is that this is cheap. On second thought, if it were expensive then both excuses for not buying a beer (too expensive, doesn't taste good) would hold, you would no longer be able to say "it tastes like ass, but at least it's cheap"
