Steel Reserve has multiple ABV's

Post by Frankennietzsche » Wed Apr 13, 2016 5:25 pm

I did not know this. I picked one up, among other things, and was surprised that it said that the ABV was 8.1%. I didn't remember this being the case, thinking that it was just the same as any other normal malt liquor. I looked it up, and, according to Beer Advocate (which, by the way, cracks me up that this site reviews beer like this) "Brewed in different abv. versions: 6.0%, 7.3%, 8.1%, & reports of a 8.9%".

Still, I think Colt 45 tastes the best of the malt liquors.

I have always heard of the mythical Mickie's 40 ouncers.

I have never seen one. I think that they are an old wives tale. Just like Obama's birth certificate-amIright

I never got the intention behind these huge beer containers.
Back in the day we drank Faxe liter cans because we were young and it looked cool. Oh yeah and because you could mix a good screwdriver in the empty can on the road.
But other than that it gets stale after a while, if not stale already when you open it, depending on beer brand, and warms in your hand.

Hmm, maybe its location. They're in every corner liquor store in Southern California. I personally prefer the wide mouth nades mentioned earlier.

One of the selling points is that its large size nearly necessitates that it be chugged as fast as possible to avoid it getting too warm and/or flat.

I prefer the 24-25 oz can to the 40oz. You can usually get 2 for if not the same then nearly the price of a 40oz, put one in the refridgeator as you are drinking, and they are lighter weight and aluminium.

That is the only way that I have had it, and only from one liquor store.

MY BROTHER! There's nothing better than kicking back with a Mickey's Grenade, chuckling at the riddle on the cap, and throwing it back.

Except the 99 cent 24 oz Mickeys tallboys the grocery store has on sale recently. It's hard deciding if I want to add caps to my collection (I'm collecting Mickeys caps to eventually put under plexi-glass on a planned drinking game table), or RETARDED cheap malt liquor.

I saw my first one in Ames, Iowa, for an AIAA conference, actually. I was like you, until I saw that glory. I've yet to find one anywhere else. I should have saved that bottle...

Tom Waits is my favorite musician on the planet. His mention of Mickey's was actually the reason I ever tried Mickeys big mouths. Of course, Waits is good drinking music in general, as you can tell by my avatar.

I concur...although I do miss the original bigger "big mouth", with the finger slicing pull-tab.
