    40 ounces of malt liquor * .081 (8.1%) alcohol content = 3.24 ounces of alcohol

    72 ounces of avg beer * .045 (4.5%) alcohol content = 3.24 ounces of alcohol


    Hrm its a tie... seems too conveniently exact to me....


    $1.69 for the 40
    $4-6 for the 12 pack

    ok the malt liquor wins!

    It's not the best, but it isnt that bad. What kind of beer do you drink?


    I put it above MGD Light and Bud Light for sure :)

    You are obviously not an alcoholic.

    Steel Reserve should come with a free beer bong... oh man, when your poor and want to get SLOSHED... Steel Reserve is there. Good stories always start with, "So we got some Steel Reserve..." Everyone knows where THAT story goes :)

    Hmm, I have never seen the steel reserve 40's, but I would get them if I could cause 8.1% is awesome. I live in Louisiana.

    Man I got so f*cked up this one night when we did "Edward Fortyhands." I'd already had a couple beers and then I had 2 40s of malt liquor taped to my hands and drank both of them combined in about an hour. I walked to this other house and had to go home because I was falling asleep on the porch.

    One Steel Reserve HG will do the trick too. Malt Liquor is some serious sh!t. Mickey's is also pretty good.

    Two cents worth of gasoline on a rag will get you even higher than that Steel Reserve. :laugh:
    Sometimes it's worth it to pay a little more for a better experience. :beer:
