2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this in a 24oz silver can. Light nose of flowers, perfume, and earth. Pours a light yellow. The large white head is fizzy bordering on creamy and tight enough to hold together as it comes above the lip of the glass. It does diminish quickly though, and has poor lacing. The flavor is not much to write home about as the brew starts sweet had a lightly acidic middle and finishes sweet and floral. The light body is smooth and lively/fizzy and finishes alcoholic. Would be the bomb with a full sack of sliders from White Castle, or perhaps a dozen or so Tacos from the border should you find yourself inebriated on your way home from your little brother’s frat house party.

The 211 is the best buy out there. Smooth, tasty, and knocks you on your ass...everything you could want in a malt liquor!!

Riverside county, last call throwback liquor store...all choices were lousy, so I opted for the ’high gravity’ choice... don’t bother, unless you have paintbrushes to clean...

Probably one of the worst beers I’ve tasted. Too sweet and winey. Only redeeming quality is the ABV.

Thought I’d save this one for a special occasion, but I just couldn’t resist its beckoning call from my fridge. Like I always say, you can’t truly know pleasure without experiencing some pain. So I dove into the tall, silver can. Its big head dies down quickly into a flat nothingness. Has an ’adjunct’ nose with a corn-like bouquet. Crisp up front, a little smoother in the middle, and sharp and alcoholic in it’s rough finish. Aftertaste is very rank, bitter and sour (in bad ways). Has an uncooked corn off-flavor. It’s not that this beer is flavorless, it’s that the few flavors it does have are horrible. Alcohol notes taste kind of like moonshine. Liquid nitrogen couldn’t get this beer cold enough to hide these flavors.

In the community of beer, Steel Reserve is the big, ugly, seven foot, 300lbs mother fucker at the bar that you don’t mess with unless you wanna get fucked up. And if you do wanna get fucked up, he’s your best friend. If you drink as much as i do, and beer doesn’t get you drunk, then Steel is your knight in shining label (as nausiating as it may be to drink). Props to the Steel Man.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2008 Not good ! Sweet and spicy aroma.
Crystal clear, dark golden hue. Large, frothy white head. Mostly lasting with good lacing. The flavor? Ok, just really bad... alcohol and very sweet and lightly hopped. Low marks for this one. Tastes like a lot of corn was used in the absence of barley malt.
Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Short, sweet, semi-dry, alcoholic finish. Please avoid this beer at all costs... except it is $1.58 for a 24 oz can!

This stuff is great. Smooth, nice, easy, very good taste, and very potent. After 1 40 I’m feeling it a little, after 2 I’d call myself ’just drunk’, and after 3 I’m pretty well blasted. No other 40 can even come close to competing with this.. Think i’ll go crack one right now. Keep hope alive, you are somebody.
