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.
Most people don't realize it, but there are different kinds of steel reserve.
The silver can of 211 is the most widely known across the country. This one is MALT LAGER.
The other 211 comes in black can or label if on bottles. This is the original steel reserve. This one is a MALT LIQUOR.
I have had this debate with many people. Even ones who have actually seen both kinds of brew don't believe me.
The only two states that I know of that have kinds of 211
are: Oregon and Wash. St.
This beer does indeed have a higly acidic taste. In a way, it is a relief from ordinary standard lagers but I won't make be drinking it regularly. It has none of the sophistication of what I would call a great beer.
