24oz cans are a wonderful thing. Reviewed to style.
Pours a super pale piss yellow with a foamy bright white head. Nose is full of grains and adjuncts along with a lot of volatile alcohol. Slightly sweet smelling. Taste follows the nose, but flavors are very light. Slight notes of adjuncts and a malty sweetness come through alongside toasted grains. Alcohol is boozy but doesn't take away from the drinkability. Full bodied, semi-thick mouth, bubbly but smooth carbonation. Not all that bad actually. Maybe a bit rough around the edges but not undrinkable.
Protip: A leftover half-finished can of SR makes some great fluffy pancake batter the next morning.

A-Poured into a big mug. Looks a clear, pale yellow with lots of bubbles and a head that quickly dissapears.
S-Sweet corn and grain. Not much else.
T-Surprisingly not too bad for a high gravity malt liquor. Tastes more like a lager, pretty refreshing.
M-Decently carbonated and light, was expecting it to be more harsh. Tastes more like a lager to me.
O-Not bad at all, expecially for its price, i paid $1.50 for a 24. It does what its meant to do, it gives a cheap buzz.

i sometimes drink a 24 oz can of this when i dont have much money. Its okay. Tastes like fishing sinkers and as if stale bourbon was added.Smells similar to the taste but add to the smell a musty burnt corn smell. The look of the beer as well as the mouthfeel and carbonation is good. For the price it is the way to go sometimes, some occasions call for steel reserve

6.0% version sold here in Durham NC...only the 211 Triple Export is 8.1% here and thats for another review
12 pack of 12oz cans = $6.50
drank from shotgun as well as 4 x 12oz cans from my 52 oz Coors Light pitcher
This is FAR better than the 8.1% version...its more like a regular lager with some bite...definitely worth a try if you see it.
Its not the "kick you in the junk and like it" taste like the 8.1% delivers...the 6.0 dont really qualify as a high gravity lager. Its my new "on the reg" regular beer now instead of Natty Ice because it tastes a hell of a lot better and its cheap.. less than 7 a 12 pack.
Its actually very smooth...its kinda funky if you let it warm up as expected.
there is a 3.2% version sold in Oklahoma...its hilarious actually...tastes like Carling Black Label or "BEER" (falstaff swill)
