1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Iíve settled into L.A. and so I decide to have this beverage named Earthquake. I followed this after a Steel Reserve and I must say, not only is Steel Reserve much better tasting, but it does not cause my tongue to tremor. Earthquake is an extremely sweet can of shit that requires an artistís lyrical interpretation to understand what happened when I consumed this because this is simply not what my reality deserves to articulate or comprehend. And so here is my poem: if I only drunk this with a hobo and danced with him in the rotten air - only then may I have liked this, only then may I have cared. Regardless of what could have been, I poured it down the drain. (That first sip and sniff truly gave me images of the stinky alley nearby my apartment that has the dumpster for the cheap Chinese restaurant - rotten cabbage, vomit-sugar, ...) Woe is me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shit tons of sweet corn, caramel, alcohol, cotton candy. I can only assume this is some shade of gold. I didnít pour it into anything Iím my ironic attempt to keep it real. Sweet corn, cotton candy, more corn syrup. Sweet. Some rotten garbage. Long lingering post puke mouthfeel. It was super boozy. This could have been way worse, but it wasnít.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
A pretty bad aroma of mostly alcohol. This beer was not good at all. Very strong alcoholic flavor with little else. I tried very hard to drink this huge can and maybe got to ounce no. 2.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color with lots of carbonation bubbles and a small white head. Aroma is corn, malt, alcohol, fruits, unknown chemicals and garbage. Flavor is corn, malts, garbage, rotting fruit, lots of sweetness and sugars in this bad boy. Finishes a little thick and cloyingly sweet like a trippel almost. But bad coz itís malt likka. This actually isnít half bad. The champagne of bums perhaps.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 Had to get this gem the minute I saw it at my local gas station. 24oz can. Pours a gold-orange with a large white head that immediately collapses. Aroma is not that bad. Not great either, but I can, unintended as it may be, detect a little bit of fruit under the chemical/rubbing alcohol aromas. Flavor would be worse if the alcohol didnít subdue the raunchier flavors underneath. But theyíre still raunchy; I mean, this stuff uses you like 20-dollar crack whore on a Sunday night in the worst part of Oakland. Then again, if youíre said hooker, this would be perfect for you: You know, to help in some small way soothe the utter despair, anguish, and hopelessness in this dark, dark existence. At $1.59 per can, itís 1 1/2 times stronger than the nearest competitors for the same price. So a heads up to all the hobos, winos, and alley bums out there on RB... Finish is of Drano, turpentine, paint thinner and gasoline, eating away the lining of my esophagus and other precious innards. Though entirely fictitious, I imagine this is what Coldcock Malt Liquor from SNL tastes like. Overall, poor.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking with notes of corn syrup, as well as some malt, and a bit of caramel with the alcohol lying behind and warming the palate and burning lightly in the top of the throat.
