1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2008 <b>Rerate</b>After 6 years, thought I would revist one of my first MLs- not as bad as before - have my tastes changed? Not as throatr clenching. <i>Original 1.1</i> Did you know that 211 is the medieval symbol for steel? See what a good well rounded education I am getting from all this drinking? Slightly malty - heavy alcohol aroma. Quickly diminishing head - weak appearance. Alcohol overides whatever flavor this is trying to deliver - but isn’t that the purpose of this ’beer’ (pssst - it is really a malt liquor).

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2010 Horribly, horribly yellow with no head. Not as skunky as most malt liquor. The most sickly sweet tasting beverage I have yet had the privilege to sample. But... All that aside... 8.1% alcohol! Yea!

8.1% Music to my ears! When the store’s outta St. Ide’s, I grab the 211! It follows all the guidelines of a good 40, cheap, strong, hard to hold down, makes you want to fight etc.. It’s a well balanced brew with a cool label, and most important, it Fucks You Up, and that deserves respect, but try not to burp around your bitch after ’SIPPIN’ on it, I mean, you’d hate to have to slap her Ho-Ass for gettin loud! This is some heavy shit, handle with care!

I honestly believe that this is the worst beer I have ever tasted. It has an overpowering metallic flavor that manages to meld seamlessly with the ethanol flavor provided by the 8.1 ABV. Anyone who drinks this because its cheep would be better off mixing iodine with seltzer for a cheaper fix.

If a bum ever asks you for spare change and you give him a giant can of this instead, he’ll be thrilled. I, on the other hand, have unfortunately undergone some bourgeoisification in my upbringing. Consequently, I’ve become accustomed to certain niceties such as running water, eating utensils, and beer that doesn’t taste like shit.

8.1% ABV!!! Now that is what a beer should be. Taste like crap, but I can hold my nose for 8.5%
