Steel Reserve is a high-gravity, low-expense alcoholic lager beverage which comes in three forms: the 6-pack of 12 oz. cans, the 24 oz. can and the black label 24 oz. can, which packs a whalloping 8.1% alc/vol. It is also referred to by nominal social circles in the southeast as a Stiff Henry
, for reasons unknown. Steel Reserve is a homely brew with a refreshing taste and high chugability
factor. It also tastes splendid in combination with a cigarette. One can only speculate that it is costing the industry millions of dollars in deficit to market a 24 oz. can for a measly 99 cents. Theoretically, a homeless derelict of legal age can scrounge up enough money to purchase a can of Steel Reserve and get stinking drunk, presuming he did not first surrender his funds to a fast-food restaurant dollar menu. Additionally, Steel Reserve is probably the only drink which promotes Viking mythology.
