2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Regardless of the reputation this beer has, as a long time drinker of overall cheap brews, here’s what i have to say about Steel Reserve. First off, i wish i’d of started buying this beer sooner, as it undoubtedly gives you the best "bang" for your buck. At $2.19 per four pack of pint cans, it can’t be beat in terms of price. Upon opening a can, you’re instantly overwhelmed by a heavily malty scent, completely overpowering any hops that may actually be in this beer. The head pours very weak and thin, and the beer is very pale in appearance. At 8.1% alcohol, you will definitley be feeling it after 2 of these. Taste is extremely malty and comparable to most other low quality/cheap brews, only with an extreme touch of malt.
Overall, i don’t think it’s as bad as it’s made out to be, and i can see myself buying it regularly when in a financial pinch, as it does get the job done very well.
Pours clear yellow, big almost white head. Aroma is Apple corn. Taste is thin malt, sweetish, apples, alcohol. Not as vile as I expected. wlajwl (6813) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 11, 2017
First time I had it years ago it was the worst. Not as bad as the first time, corn, malts and a creeping nasty alcohol. Passable. DraftCommander90 (1) - - JUL 11, 2017 does not count

All you beer snobs, you silly lot...do you ever question why you drink? Is it really some vague artistic bohemian pursuit, or do you want to fucking lose your mind in a drunken squalor. I go with menu option B...the drunken squalor option. That being the case, Steel Reserve does an amazing job of it. In fact, it has gotten me into a drunken squalor quicker and cheaper than any beer in my personal beer swilling history. All hail and bow down to Steel Reserve High Gravity shitty beer! It’s the real deal of shitty beers you can procure from 7-11 and other locations of convenience. I’m drunk as shit and loving it. What a cheap putrid high you can get from this liquid shit.

Pours a golden orange color with a minimal head that did at least last through the entirety. The aroma wasn’t necessarily harsh but wasnt pleasant either. There is aroma of soggy cereal and alcohol grain. The flavor was similar but offputting with a bad aftertaste.

So figured since I’m staying here for my silly style chasing goals it’s finally time to push malt liquor to 15. Grabbed from a gas station. Deepe orange gold. Nose is rich high fructose corn syrup. Tastes the same corny, sugar, malt, hint of artificial fruit. Really bad seehaferb23 (270) - - MAY 29, 2017
