Steel Reserve is a Union made, American lager owned and produced by Steel Brewing Company. Today we are going to take a look at the 8.1% abv High Gravity Lager, which is slow brewed for 28 days with extra barley and select hops.
Steel Reserve is most often found in 40oz bottles and 24oz silver cans, with a great eye catching design.
It pours a clear amber color with minimal lacing. Carbonation is on the high end of the lager spectrum. The aromas are light malt and sweet corn, with no hop aromas present. The taste is sweet corn, sugary adjuncts, some slight metallic flavors rounded out by some acidic hops and the warm glow of alcohol. Probably one of the best malt liquors out there.
“Steel Reserve is a great beer!!”
“I wish i could get my home brew to taste more like it!”
“This is the perfect alcoholic’s brew.”
“It tastes better than many macro brews or is more drinkable than an IPA or a stout.”
So go ahead and give it a try. As you sip this nectar remember all of my friends who know and love this beer. Here’s looking at you, Tim & Emmett. Cheers!
