This pours with a light straw yellow, pale and watery. The head was a mass of quickly bursting bubbles that fluttered away in seconds.

Sour maltiness with a tinge of sweet corn, the nose is a bit boozy.

The flavor is very sweet, brash, sour and offensive if left in the can. For the sake of this review I poured it in a glass and allowed it to air out. The flavor became more bearable with obvious sweet and sour barley, corn and maybe some alcohol.

The feel is light but haunted by that "malt liquor" feel.

I bought this on a whim and was suckered by $3.50 a four pack of pints. The terms High Gravity and slow brewed were also a determinant in this purchase but it won't happen again.

Let's face it, 211 is malt liquor at its finest.

It is strong, it is sweet and "alcoholy", and it gets the job done.

It's meant for the back-alleys, the pre-drinking in the back of your friend's car, and that one time your ex-girlfriend's twin sister drank a 40 of it and couldn't handle it (resulting in a great story and memory).

This is the stuff of legends.
