The two eleven mark, based on the medieval symbol for steel, appears only on Steel Reserve(R) High Gravity lager. We use nearly twice the ingredients of many normal lagers & brew for over twice as long as many quality beers.

foyle (395) - Wyoming, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Served from 22 oz can into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 1+" white head. Color is yellow-golden with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: corn husks, with toasted barley and slight citrus in the background. Mouthfeel: heavy with a mostly dry finish and warming alcohol in the throat. Flavor: bold but nicely balanced between corn sweetness, rich barley, and enough hops to keep it from being cloying. Overall: first time ever having a malt liquor, I was pleasantly surprised. Not something I would buy regularly, but nothing offensive either.

Pours nicely with a thin head that disappears quickly. It's light in color, and has no particularly strong aroma. It has a sweet, malty taste. Overall it's very drinkable and very good value for money.

Served out of a paper bag into my Duvel glass. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is cereal grains, sweetness, grass. Taste is not bad really. Cereal grain, sweet malt, smooth. Not bad for a malt liquor. OK lacing.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Can shared during the first Late Nite session of RBWG 2015. Pours totally clear gold with a bubbly white head. Nice grainy pale bread aroma. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with simple, sugary white bread, pale grains, no hops. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, more cereal grain sugars, white sugar, basic bread. Quality malt liquor. Drinks well below its weight.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Can @ RBWG hotel share. Deep gold with a big white head. Attractive stuff. Nose is candy corn, white bread, booze. Taste isnít overly skunky or boozy, so thatís nice. More candy and bread. Apple sauce. Medium body, active carb.

Can. Pours nicely, I have to say, and looks clear and golden with a moderate white head on there. Nose smells like corn and gym socks and should not be considered beer. Tastes sickly sweet and would make for a really sticky spill. Bleh.

24 oz can poured into a pint glass. A: Pours a piss-yella color. The head doesnít last long - itís about a finger high, white in color, and very bubbly. At least it leaves some lacing behind! S: Smells, in essence, like cheap white wine. The aroma could have been FAR worse - smelling like cheap white wine is a lot better than smelling of corn, cooked veggies, and failure. T: Same with the taste - I donít love it by any means, but I can definitely drink this. There is a half-decent corn flavor here (like a good pre-pro pils), followed by bits of cream and cheap white wine. Honestly, the more I drink it, the more the generic sweetness becomes a bother instead of any shitty off-notes. M: Thereís a slight prickle on the palate from the booze, which comes out the more I drink it. That, and itís rather sweet finishing - too sweet, actually. In the realm of craft beer, the feel would fail utterly; but in the realm of malt likka, it reigns like a street king looking over his bitch-ass subjects. O: Iíd rather drink this over the typical BMC stalwarts (sans Miller High Life, maybe). It certainly isnít a good beer, BUUUT itís great for getting drunk on the cheap. I donít hate this one, thatís for sure.

Poured from a 24 OZ can into a tulip glass (I know, opposite ends of the spectrum). This is not a bad beer, it is t=stigmatized for being a gas station malt liquor but it is pretty good and it has a real smooth flavor and palate. if you are not a malt liquor drinker but would like to experience a fairly good beer I would try this or a Colt 45.

Can @ a neighborís house. Not sure if I should even give a review on this...because I had just had two Optimators and was pretty buzzed by the time I tried this brew. To me it tasted like a sour fruity Belgian ale...which I donít like. I donít drink very often and was blasted by the time I finished it.
