2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 Bottle 12 oz. This stuff was good 2 1/2 years ago. Full bodied, malty, hoppy, viscous, very cloudy with a pleasant toasted flavor. Then it changed abruptly to a mainstream, commercial, diluted, crystal clear, sterile bore. I remember buying up a load of the older brew when the replacement came on the market.

Gushed big time, lost almost half. Hazy copper color, big cream color head, lots of lace. Big floral hop aroma. Flavor was a bit mild compared to the aroma, still hoppy though. Smooth feel, bitter finish. Nice for a session, too bad I only have one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells hoppy, with a fruitiness to it. The taste of this beer has a clean fruitiness with a nice bitterness to back it up. An orange color, with a bit of chill haze. There is some citrusy flavors here from the hops. This is a strong example of a pale ale meant to be easy drinking with a good amount of flavor.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Labeled under Superstition Pale Ale. Mogollon has some of the best labels. Minimal frothy head. Light copper color. Mix of fruit and malts in the aroma. Very hoppy in the initial taste. Semi-sweet. has a nice not too overbearing aftertaste. Would be great with spicy foods. This ones a keeper.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden color, nice but not lasting head. Fruity aroma with some hops. Starts slightly malty and fruity and gets soon hoppier, finishes bitter. Complex aftertaste. A good surprise.

Darker than expected and also a better head and more aroma. The flavor really surprises me with lots of hoppyness and a little, but just right, side taste of resin. I only had one, and it was a really hot day. I bet this one would do even better a chilly night by the fire.

Very thick yellow color, aroma was that of a pale. Hoppy with a touch of malt. Texture was a little off for me, but still a nice pale.
