This used to be my overall cheap go-to, because it's hard to argue with $1.10 for a 24oz. can. Do yourself a favor and don't ever get it in a 40, because it will make you wanna spew about halfway through. Unless you're sophisticated enough to drink it out of a glass ;)
A - Poured into a frosted mug, it pours a straw color, with a finger's worth of foam that fizzles quickly, leaving almost no lacing.
S - There's not much going on... typical malt liquor smell. Corn, sugars, booze.
T - Hello, old friend. There's that funky malt liquor funk, with the weird sour/sweet, dry bitter... normally all qualities I enjoy in beer, but not this one. There's definitely corn in there, too... yuck.
M - Kinda hard to notice, mostly because of how quickly you want it out of your mouth. Fizzy. Not much heat from the ABV, but that's probably because of how cold it is.
O - If you want a good beer, this ain't it. But it is an incredible value. If you like malt liquor, you'll probably agree that Mickey's is far superior, *but* Steel Reserve is cheap as hell, and at 8.1% ABV, it'll get you where you want to be.
