3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Clear medium orange color, with a small white head. Very nice, IPA-ish hop bite, very criosp with a solid malty body and overall wood-like characteristics.

Pretty classic pale ale but definitely missing a hoppy flavor. Everyting else is okay except color is week and aroma is akward. Nice label and nice beer to drink in the Grand Canyon for the first time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color: a clear, bright apricot, with tiny, yeasty(?!?) travellers swimming hither and thither. Head: small, brief, white.
Aroma is soft amd swept clean, but slowly unfolds with malty tones of caramel and nuts. Faintly fruity, otherwise lacking in hops.
On palate, a bit sharp, at first, with a coppery twang. Eventually, hops assert themselves, but the mouthfeel was not a pleasant experience. The roughness I felt subsides some, and the pieces come together more in the middle. Still, the flavors compete a bit too much. Something about what I could only call a "dull, ringing aftertaste" spoiled this ale for me. Body is medium, texture good, but not a smooth ride, when thatís whatís called for with a pale ale.

Poured with a very impressive head, which provided great lacing. Actually, the appearance was very nice for a pale ale. Hopping was detectable in the flavor and aroma with some citrus overtones (but not a lot of grapefruit going on).

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.

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.

Draught at Mogollon Brewing Company, Flagstaff, Arizona.
Clear dark orange beer with no head. Weak fruity and little hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor, quite thin specially in the finish. Orange notes also. Some dryness.

Had this beer on 10/2/2002. Aroma is mild malt scent. Color was an orange/amber with ok carbonation and head. Taste is mild with a nice hoppyness. Overall I think its a good beer.
