its like steel reserve without the harsh aftertaste I think it tastes pretty good and the alcohol content is through the roof plus the price helps it in fact this is one of my favorite beers

puboflyons (2497) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2015
From the 24 fl oz can. Yellow carbonated pour. Aroma of harsh pale malts, corn, grass, and butter. Medium body. Toasted mild sweetness gives way to cloying grassy bitterness at the end. There is a difference between this one and the regular 8.1% Steel Reserve. This one is more obnoxious.

ordybill (601) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Poured from a 24 OZ can into a pint glass ( red plastic solo cup would have been more appropriate) This beer is cheap and has a high alcohol content. Mecca for college kids and skid row bums. There is a little yellow coloration and smells like stale corn The taste is of lightly carbonate corn meal with an alcohol bite at the end. Buy a sixer of these jumbo cans and see if you can finish them and then look yourself in the eye in a mirror after the deed is done. If you drink to many of these I am sure this is the main reason for poor decisions and regret.

Shanebrews (221) - Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2014
This is a high gravity malt liquor but at the same time a respectable lager. The aroma is not much but it looks the part of a nice lager. The taste is thick, rich, sweet, and more apple-like than all of the faux cider-pop that the big breweries are making now. The finish is smooth if virtually unhopped. I would drink this again.

CapFlu (4762) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Pours a clear golden body beneath a quick dissipating was. Nose of acetone, bruised apple and corn. Fizzy, corny and paint remover flavour. Gross.

zach8270 (3834) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2014
(can - 24 oz) Gold pour with a white head. Too sweet in the aroma. Too sweet and astringent in the flavor. Not a whole lot of good.

UDBeernut (2152) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Picked up a can while in SC, had right out of the can. Sweet malt, tin, cardboard, cloying. Full body put tought to work through. Crap.

Can from a gas station. Pours a super transparent golden. Aroma of malts. Taste the same.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2014
Tasted on 4/13/14 from a 24oz can purchased at a gas station in Florida. Pours clear golden with a thick white head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is sweet corny malt with a somewhat dusty aroma and the lightest hint of green hops possible. The flavor is just a touch more green bitterness forward with the same sweet corn and dusty note. The body is nearly full with lively, almost fizzy, carbonation, and a short corny finish.

Utter trash. Good good one thing and one thing only: getting wasted as a homeless or teen quick.
