Steel Reserve 211 High Gravity

Steel Reserve 211 High Gravity is produced by Steel Brewing Co., which is owned by MillerCoors. The standard alcohol content is 8.1% ABV, but it has also been produced in 40s in 6% ABV and 7.3% ABV versions. This "silver" Steel Reserve is not to be confused with the "black" version, Steel Reserve 211 Triple Export. The back of the label (on all but 1 of the variants) explains what the 211 means: "The two eleven mark, based on the medieval symbol for steel, appears only on steel reserve high gravity lager. We use nearly twice the ingredients of many normal lagers & brew for over twice as long as many quality beers."

The common 8.1% Steel Reserve has a classic high gravity taste to which all other HGs are compared, that being a harsher taste than regular malt liquor due to the higher alcohol content. The high alcohol content is worth it, though. Steel Reserve 211 HG is a solid high gravity malt liquor, worthy of 7/10 swills. The 6% version is even smoother, due to the lower ABV. The better taste is offset by the lower alcohol content, however, resulting in the same rating of 7/10 swills.

I need the 3 variants pictured on the bottom (the first is the test marketed plastic bottle). If you can help, please email me.
