(24oz can thanks to blutt59) Pours a clear light gold with a white fizzy head. Aroma of corn and fussel oil. Flavor is the same but a bit worst. Mouth feel is medium body with high carbonation. Overall, Some NASTY shit!

(24oz can thanks to blutt59) Smells like Miller High Life that someone put medicine into- as in non sweetened cough syrup. This is disgusting! How can anyone drink this?

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can’t wait for the BA version! Pours burnished gold with a foamy off-white head. Aromas of alcohol, stone fruit and malt. Full bodied with coarse carbonation. Flavor is rather fruity and there’s fair heat. Finish is sweetish pale malt. Sort of imperial macro. One of the better HGLs I’ve had.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
yellow gold, clear and bubbly, fluffy quickly dissolving white head, trace of lace. nose of malt with a trace of corn. flavor has some kind of corn sweetness, kind of an unpleasant alcohol astringency. reminicent of isopropyl alcohol. light bodied, dry finish. a real loser. tastes bad, delivers way too much alcohol too quickly. maybe useful if you are a hobo and need a real cheap high, but still, a 24 oz can delivers a lot of alcohol in a really short time. don’t you want to be able to drink for a long time if you are trying to forget your problems?

(24oz can, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, cereal, and alcohol burn. Flavor of corn, alcohol, and corn syrup. Awful.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a bright and effervescent golden with a marginal white head. Aroma is similar to a cherry cola. Taste is cloyingly sweet bubble gum and burning alcohol. Why did I buy this??

This beer smells like young home brewd wine and taste strongly of alchohol. If this beer was casked or bottle fermented for a year it would be considered premium. This is a beer with a great deal of potential that will never be achieved in the confines of a can.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Earthquake High Gravity Lager can only be described as monstrously bad. It has a thick, off-white, quickly dissipating head and a hazy, dark gold color. Lacing is minimal and disappears almost instantly. Aroma is of over-ripe apples or some other fruit. Taste is of some sort of cough syrup or chemical extract. Mouth-feel is nauseating and retching. Earthquake finishes down the drain. I hate to waste 24 oz. and some money, but this is beyond the pale! Oh, this is heroically bad!

My.................Dear...................God..... Despite my ability to confess my affinity for high grav swill, this one is too much even for me. I nearly gag with every wretched sip. Horribly fake bubblegum, grain alcohol, and vanilla sweetness make me want to vomit every time this horrible elixer enters my mouth. Why o why was this ever brewed??? The saddest part of this evening, is that my disdain for this beer is only (slightly) surpassed by my desire to blackout......
