Talking So the alcohol store gave me free booze to "test" (sparks and steel reserve)

Went into MGM liquors and asked if they had sparks, the manager said no, oh wait, we have a demo of it, went into his office and said you can have this for free.

We then talked a bit about it and how if i like it he can put some on the shelves for me (since it probably wont sell) then he said hes got another demo for me to try and gives me a 8.1% steel reserve high gravity lager.

I get to test 2 FREE cans of booze


(sparks can pic) + =

go for the bottle if you can imagine it the bottle tastes a bit better. just drink it before it gets warm. and even complete lushes give up the steel because it rips up your gut bad after repeated use.

Steel Reserve is the Ish... we call it liquid crack. 3 40's of that stuff = instant blackout. Sparks is like a bad red bull and vodka, but cheap as hell, so maybe worth it.

Uhhh, lager just refers to the type of yeast used when fermenting the beer. Most beers you drink are probably lagers. There are two types: Ales, and Lagers. Ales are top fermenting and ferment at higher temperatures than lagers that are bottom fermenting, meaning the yeast floats or sinks while fermenting.

As far as taste, lagers generally have less "off" flavors imparted because the yeast digests more than ales. Generally people say Lagers are more "pure" in flavor because of this. So, in reality, Ales would be concidered more "wierd" than Lagers.
