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.

While many canít handle itís rich flavor, the ones that do stand by it almost religiously. Being a steel reserve fan myself, I have found that most of the people who donít like it have never tried it, they are going mostly on what theyíve heard. Trust me this is a beer you have to try for yourself, you will either love it or hate it. But I strongly suggest you at least give it a chance, you might just find itís whats been missing in your life.

For a malt liquor it taste great and is smooth for 8.1% ABV. It will also keep you warm on these cold winter nights.

The undisputed king of the 40ís. The most rugged brew for the most rugged of men. Truly seperates the men from the boys. Got a plastic taste to it with an absolutly wickd after taste in the later portions. They got to put chrystal meth or speed in this stuff, cause you will become violent. In a word, STEEL.

I really love this beer, for a malt it has good taste a great color and will absolutely knock you flat if you drink too much. Usually cheap at 1.25 in CA for a 22oz can, readily available. You have to be certain to drink it while cold, because when it gets warm it does become undrinkable! The best part is the amount of alchohol, it is palatable as soon as you open the can and sip, try freezing this beer but do not go too long or ALL the alch will float to the top (theres that much in there!

Cheap as fuck and as soon as you taste it you start to feel buzzed cant beat it for the price it taste great at about 32 Fahrenheit or 1-2 Celsius if any warmer I always eat something spicy while drinking so I can keep the taste out of my mouth because Iíve been drinking it for three years now and Steel reserve above 50 degrees is still vomit inducing very bitter, full body, thick feel, average carbonation, bitter,

O.K. Why do I like Steel? Itís got a smooth taste and goes down well with a football game, or even an evening of surfing online. Itís better than most american Macrobrews, (Is it micro? Itís marketed big) and will get you a good buzz. Beware of this stuff in the can however, itís just not the same. Cool it down as much as you can, then enjoy. Worth a try, esp for the price.

Very cheap, but better tasting than any other malt liquor I've had. Only comes in 24 oz cans or 40 oz bottles (that i've seen) = quality.
