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.”

Hazy golden color, small white head, some lace. Flowery Cascade hoppy, quite intensive for APA. Medium-bodied. More malty and sweet side in the flavor than hoppy. Some fruityness, finishing watery and sweet.

homebrew (15) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 26, 2005
This beer goes with anything... from mac’n’cheese to sushi. Nothing particularly remarkable, but an excellent staple beer. It has a freshness that survives the bottle. Light bodied with very good hop flavor.

(bottle, Great US Beer Tasting in Genoa) Good hop aroma. The flavour is balanced, with adequate bitterness. Body is a bit on the thin side. Quite drinkable.

thoreaubred (42) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2005
This is a decent, drinkable pale ale, but nothing too special. Kind of on the watery side.

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 When im in the northwest this is usually my "can get anywhere" beer. Slight grapefruit/piney aroma. orange and pine also stand out in flavor. The bitterness adds a nice kick also. Delicious beer, great on tap.

Pailhead (5555) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Aroma is mostly orange with light grapefruit hoppiness and a touch of floral aromas as well. Hazy orange with a nice white head that lasts a mnute or so. Flavor has lots of sweet orange up front and light caramel. Light piney and grapefruit hop finish. Well balanced for the most part, but a tad more hops wouldn’t hurt. Very easy drinking. A very nice APA.
