This is base camp, where any craft brew exploration begins. A distinct hop nose and hop-forward flavor make Mirror Pond the quintessential Pale Ale. It is aromatically complex, multi-layered, and unmistakably “right.”

Piney, biscuity aroma. A medium bodied smoothness follwed by a mouth coating hop finish. Good american pale ale.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 Bottle. Pours amber, with a moderate head. Aroma is moderately sweet, with pine and grapefruit hops. Taste is more towards a fresh citrus/grapefruit taste, with a moderate amount of grapefruity bitterness, a hint of pine, and a bit of a slightly sweet malt backbone. Decent, but doesn’t stand out.

Pours amber, thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Nice caramel malt backbone with grapefruitty bitterness. Bitterness is relatively light. Not spectacular, but I really enjoyed this.

Bottle from Ken (kenb) Thanks! Pours out an amber color without much of a head. Smell is sweet, pine, hint of grapefruit, some grass, and malts. Taste is similar, with a nice citrus flavor that makes it very easy to drink. This would be my session beer if I lived in Oregon. Thanks!

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle. Amber beer with a thin off-white head. Citrus and slight caramel aroma. Orange citrus flavor with decent pale ale bitterness. Very drinkable - refreshing. Flavors fade fairly quickly. Nothing real bad, but nothing to make it stand out.

rybowen (105) - Los Angeles 90039, California, USA - AUG 5, 2006
On tap, good American pale ale with that distinctive aroma and flavor of citrus and mint. Slightly hoppier than most but a good combination of malt and hop flavors. Nice golden hazy color. I could drink several of these.

i am not a fan of the pale ales, however, this is a great beer. definitely citrus aroma, with hops and citrus in the taste. a bit of aftertaste that is almost sour.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 12 OZ BOTTLE FROM local grocer. Very fresh citus aroma. Hazy deep copper color. Very large head. Lots of lace. Very nice fruity hoppy taste. Very smooth. Full bodied yet I feel i could drink several of these. Citrusy aftertaste that lingers just the right amount of time. This is a very well hopped and balanced pale ale.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Had it on tap while visiting family in Oregon and was sold on the spot. Tastes pretty good in bottle as well. Nice fruity aftertaste.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUL 23, 2006
On tap pours hazy golden with a nice white head. Aromas of carmel and floral hop. Taste of mostly carmel malts and a nice hop finish. A nice easy drinking pale ale to get started with.
