The undisputed king of the 40ís. The most rugged brew for the most rugged of men. Truly seperates the men from the boys. Got a plastic taste to it with an absolutly wickd after taste in the later portions. They got to put chrystal meth or speed in this stuff, cause you will become violent. In a word, STEEL.

I really love this beer, for a malt it has good taste a great color and will absolutely knock you flat if you drink too much. Usually cheap at 1.25 in CA for a 22oz can, readily available. You have to be certain to drink it while cold, because when it gets warm it does become undrinkable!
The best part is the amount of alchohol, it is palatable as soon as you open the can and sip, try freezing this beer but do not go too long or ALL the alch will float to the top (theres that much in there!

O.K. Why do I like Steel? Itís got a smooth taste and goes down well with a football game, or even an evening of surfing online. Itís better than most american Macrobrews, (Is it micro? Itís marketed big) and will get you a good buzz. Beware of this stuff in the can however, itís just not the same. Cool it down as much as you can, then enjoy. Worth a try, esp for the price.

Very cheap, but better tasting than any other malt liquor I've had. Only comes in 24 oz cans or 40 oz bottles (that i've seen) = quality.

Ah yes, Steel Reserve. 8.1 my son. Steel Reserve is my tried and true. It reminds me somewhat of a malt liquor pear juice, and I feel many of the naysayers say as such as, Iíve noticed most pizza shops selling it, generally donít know how to handle their beers, and so its unfortunately going to be skunked way too often, ooor that itís cheap malt liquor, which is taboo. I am a fan of all kind of malts, and Iíve had rather expensive "high quality" malts on tap at local taverns that taste identical to Steel.
