Steel Reserve


'Steel Reserve is sold in single-serving 40 U.S. fluid ounces (1.183 L) bottles. It also is distributed in single-serving 24 U.S. fluid ounces (710 mL) cans (often referred to as "tall boys"), 22 U.S. fluid ounces (also commonly referred to as "deuce deuces")(651 mL) bottles, 16 U.S. fluid ounces (473 mL) cans in packs of four or six, and 12 U.S. fluid ounces (355 mL) cans in packs of six or twelve. The manufacturer describes the taste as "exceptionally smooth," however it may be said that its appeal lies in its attractive price, high alcohol content, and stylish packaging. Steel Reserve is commonly referred to as "Last Reserve", "Steel Rod", "Rod Job", "Steel Silver Rod", "Steel Black Rod", "Rodney", and also "The Skyscraper". -Wikipedia.org

This beer was recommended by a friend of mine with a laugh and now I see that he was trying to pull a prank on me. This isn't actually beer, its a beer scented all purpose cleaner. I might keep a few cans around to clean the stove in a pinch but there is no way I will ever, ever, ever drink one sip of this 'beverage' again. Jesus fucking Jones this is bad! I don't even know what to say, this beer tastes like a combination of spoiled malts, ethyl alcohol and distilled rat bladder. I choked one of these monsters down but I feel as if two would have made me violently ill. Blecchhhhhhhhhh!

Musical Pairing: Buck Cherry- Black Butterfly (the worst rated album on allmusic by the worst band I could think of)

distilled rat bladder just happens to be my thing.

It tastes just like it smells.....Delicious!

I hate my friends. 'Hey if you like good cheap beer try Steel Reserve' I knew that stuff had to be garbage.

Woah, I didn't think Steel Reserve actually existed outside of the bodegas in NYC. That stuff is hardcore for 99 cents a tallboy. If you can manage to down one of these bad boys, you'll be vomiting after the last gulp.

You've shown your true willingness to take it on the chin in the name of beer and beer tasting. (Rat bladder...that kills me.) I know what I'll use to clean the floor of my garage with from now on! When your palate has recovered, sample a bottle of Cave Creek Chili Beer - bleeech.

Chili Beer? I am not lying I would drink that...

Mamma Mia Pizza Beer was surprisingly decent

I used to partake occasionally in the Steel Reserve in college, which by now is a LONG time ago. The guy is to throw it in the freezer until it is 32.0000000001 degrees and drink fast. It has a lot of booze and it was cheap.

Had one recently and it was VERY painful to finish. I guess I'm too old for that shit.

Steel Reserve is delicious...especially with an L. I guess some people aren't man enough for it.

This just in, if you are an anonymous shit talker you are in fact not a man.
