1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
24oz can, bought from a Kroger somewhere months ago. It’s about time I got to drinking this. It has no date, just a code: 0144LT 2229 FL. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves decent lace. Looks solid. The taste, though... Ugh!! Awful. Up front, very biting. Kind of sour, biting in the finish, some bite, dry finish, some heat. Aroma is corn, lemon, adjuncts galore. Big bready corn malt. Very sour sourdough. I can only take the smallest of sips so it’s hard to judge the body, but it’s a kind of soft carbonation and drying finish. Awful. Would make for a good punishment beer.

Giant can from Krampus. Clear yellow with white head. Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Corn, adjunct, moderate carbonation and mild but skunky aftertaste.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a can. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like old fermented corn, dry spoiled bitter musk. Bad taste and aftertaste. Smells like sweet musk, fermenting corn and apples.

Can shared by beerandblues2. Pours clear bright gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is pale malt, corn, adjuncts, and faint grassiness. Flavor is malty and somewhat bland with noticeable alcohol content. Medium body and carbonation.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Earthquake High Gravity Lager (10% variant) has a thin, white head that dies right away, just a bit of lacing splotches here and there, and a mostly clear (lots of tiny, white specks floating about), bubbly, golden appearance. The aroma is of very strong, sweet, fruity (green apple), grainy malts, and the flavor is of sweet, alcohilic, sour apple. Mouthfeel is mostly light and a bit prickly from the carbonation, and this one finishes mostly dry, not so boozy (as I anticipated), and not too harsh. I was expecting the worse, but was pleasantly surprised. For a cheap, urban (lets say), strong lager, this one is alright. I didn’t hate it. RJT
*UPDATE*- As I drank through the can, it made me feel as though I would vomit, so I hurried up and drank a Michelob AmberBock to alleviate the situation. This is not unusual for filthy beers like Earthquake High Gravity.

24 oz. can shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a piss clear color with some bubbles for a head. Mostly notes of metal and corn flakes. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a metallic, boozy mouthfeel. Not terrible for a malt liquor. Not good, but still.

24 oz can to taster (generously shared by me with the group). Can says it’s 10%Looks decent; a transparent gold with thin off-white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet wi notes of lager yeast and mild corn. Average on the palate. Better than I expected.
