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.”

This is a quality easy drinking beer for any time of the year. It pours a copper color with a medium white head. Beautiful fruity hop aroma. Well balanced fruity citrus flavors, a touch of malt, and a subtle lingering hop finish. Pass me another.

Amber with a sweet caramel malty aroma backed by hops and floral accents. Flavour has some suprising apple and pear sweetness, and it’s very nicely balanced with the hops (too many pales are just over hopped). Even some grape flavour going on as this ends with a nice sublte bitterness.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Poured an earthy/amber color with a decent oak hued head. Citrus and soft evergreen hops are prevelent in the first wif and give way to a solid malt balance aided by toasted malts. The taste starts with the piny hops but it’s the malt flavor that dominates. It is a darkish malt similar to molasses. A little more hop balance in the mouth would have made this a much better pale. Not bad, i’ll drink it again.

Excellent pale ale. Awesome hop flavor and a somewhat fruity(?) aroma. Very nice indeed. Worth giving a try.

Good brew overall. Tried on tap an Macayo’s. Thick head, citrus flavor, impressive hop taste. Not great, but a good American Pale Ale. Worth trying.

Pale amber in colour. marginal head with good lace. fruity malt nose. grapefruit hop taste that is not overbearing.
