1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can (710 freakiní ml). My 11th and last Steelback rating - no thanks to MrManning!. Oh, poor Fwankee - losing his beloved swilljuice company - and the little baby Jesus weeps. Pale oily gold, minimal bubbling, clear fizzy-frothy white head - it SOUNDED cheap. Thereís lime in this? Really? Dry, stale chemical/corn aroma, some vague cooked vegetables, they maybe had a hop plant in a small pot out behind the factory where this was spewed forth, but ainít none in the aroma. The taste - like a watered down fizzy popsicle - fake lemon mixed with fake lime mixed with ditchwater and liquid paper. Watery, mildly fizzy body, mercifully quick-finishing, not as bad a metal/chemical/plastic/paper aftertaste as I feared, but all in all this lives nicely down to the assjuice reputation this company deserves - although to admit, I was expecting worst ever, this is just horrible.

710ml can, 5.5% a/v
My last steelback beer to try.. I suppose Iím a glutton for pain. Here goes nothing:
Pours a well carbonated gold colour with a quickly dissapating white head. The aroma is somewaht malty and fruity, but not the lime they claim is in the beer. Taste test time, not that bad, but it tastes chemically.. almost not like beer. Very weird taste but not undrinkable. Not good though.

710ml can, The Beer Store! Iíve been wanting to try this for *years,* finally I donít have to commit money to a 24-pack. Pours very clear yellow-gold...doesnít look too bad. Head disappears, but the lacing sticks around for a bit. Aroma is classic Steelback...why would I expect anything else from this brewer? Corn, malt(?), no real sense of the citrus. Here goes...! Taste...not awful. I canít really detect much of the lime. Thereís a bit of fruit tang around the edges. One thing this beer does have going for it, its carbonation does put it on the refreshing side. That being said I would rather drink anything besides this beer. Given that this brewerís jumbo cans are mainly used to get college kids and vagrants intoxicated, it seems like a poor idea to put this in a single-serving. Maybe has a short life as a curiosity, but I canít see anyone returning to this beer.

No longer in plastic, they switched to clear glass bottles. Not as horrible as all that: Itís still a misconstrued idea with headachy citrus flavours. I think they ought to abandon this beer immediately. Thin profile, somewhat corny, but drinkable.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Yellow appearence with no head. Aroma is of bitter lemons, reminiscent of pinesol with a piss of yeast. Bitter cornmeal flavors with some alcohol. Great aftertaste of nastiness.

Iím sorry to everyone who has had the misfortune of trying ANY Steelback beer. No one around here even THINKS of drinking it. I found out about this site on one of the local radio stations, and whaddya know, they didnít mention that there were THREE Steelback beers in the top 15 worst beers in the world... I guess they didnít wanna jeopardize their sponsorship... hahaha.

So, this is one of the worst beers in the world, lets see. Pours clear golden with a fizzy dying head - definately not very pretty. Soapy and citrusy aroma - artificial and not very pleasant. Thin flavor with a soapy lemon note. Watery as hell in the mouth. Definately not a very good beer, but close to many of the bad German radlers and not a top 10 worst beers imo.

This is not this bad. Clear golden color to it. Aroma has lots of vodka and ginger ale in it. Tastes like, well basically, a flat ginger ale., ive had worse

Now this was just as bad as expected - but a beer neird wants to know how the worst beer in the world tastes - I wish I wasnít a beer neird. The best thing about this beer is the plastic bottle, which keeps the weight down when crossing the Atlantic. Here goes: An orange beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is of lime and chewing gum, while the flavor contains the same elements, but adds in a hint of other citrus fruits - and to make the perfect bad beer, the body is thin.
