COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 24, 2006
12 oz. bottle from sunflower market. generous american hybrid hop aroma, and plenty of hops in the flavor. nicely balanced light citrus flavor, quite easy and pleasant drinking for me.. but usually i prefer more hops ;) Worth trying more than once.

12 oz. Bottle pours out a orange-amber color. with a white head. Nothing that great. It is a little to pale ale for me.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2006
12 oz. Bottle. Nice slightly hazy dark orange color with an off white head and creamy lacing. Orange and apricot nose. Very balanced malt profile with citrus finish. Very well made beer.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Citrus and apricot aroma.Hazy, orange, gold color (but this is supposed to be bottle conditioned, so haze is good). Fruity flavor with touches of grapefruit and apricot. Maybe a bit of malt. Mouthfeel is full and foamy, but thins a bit. Finish is very light, but the hops are there.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle, pale hazy orange-amber, citrus malty aroma. A nicely balanced APA that finishes clean and refreshing. Nothing *real* outstanding but very pleasant and now on my list to keep in the fridge.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2009 I was really surprised by this pale ale. it has both great flavor and a nice, soft bitterness - some citrus fruit tones. Great beer overall.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Not perfect but very smooth all around (and perfect for a hot day). Can definitely taste the hops, but not as hoppy as some pale ales from the NW.

Kinz (3286) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2006
Draft at Safeco Field. Medium amber, clear, little head. Aroma was caramel and undefined piney hops. Flavor was mild biscuit, perhaps a bit of spicy hops. Some citrus and earth. Bitter tinge, tocuh thin, and a bit of carbonation bite. Just sort of there. Consumed while watching the White Sox take the Mariners behind the woodshed.

A great orangish yellow color with a smooth and silky head. Great aroma and a great tasting beer. If you have had a hot day in the sun this is the beer to grab. Good use of mat and hops and the flavor is just killer. Mmmmmmm

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2006
From bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with thin white head. Nose is light citrus hops. Flavor is bitter hops all the way from start to finish. Body is overly thin. A good drinker though.
