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.”

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2004
hazy orange golden appearnce, small white bubbly head. Vague aroma of lime and toffee. Clean and a bit thin flavour of line, grass and toffee. Weak grassy with notes of citrus peels. Mercury-like mouthfeel.

omhper (19383) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2004
Bottled. Pale orange, hazy. Grapefruity and orangey. Light bodied, crisp and fairly dry. Clean and straightforwarrd with some crispy rye bread character. Pleasant finish with balanced bitterness. An outstandingly well balanced APA.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Pours a reddish orange haze with a golden hue to it. Small white head. Aroma is hoppy, with pine and sweet citrus present. Flavor is full with lots of carbonation. I pick up Hops, lemons and oranges. Overall a nice APA. Thanks to Indiana Red for this one!

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Golden orange with a smill, slightly dirty white head. Aroma is a nice ballance of a sour malt and bitter hops. The tast is largely bitter, mostly from a citrus hop presense, and also slightly sour. It is somewhat dry and has a nice medium bodied finish. Thanks to HeRftYDrF for this.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Great cascade aroma. Amber in color with a small white head. Not quite as much hop flavor or bitterness as the aroma suggests, but what is there is nice. Nicely balanced. Solid APA, thats very easy to find in the northwest.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Tap. Hazy amber, crisp minty aroma. Nicely balanced and very drinkable; a good APA, especially for one predominately using cascade hops.

PorterPounder (5558) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Pours a brilliant light orange, with a light, off-white head. Fresh floral and spruce aroma. Has a smooth citrusy hop bite with some back end Christmas spices. Mellow, caramelly maltiness balances it out rather nicely. Pleasant sticky mouthfeel. Very good APA. Excellent thirst quencher after conquering Flatttop Mountain overlooking Anchorage.

slimweebs (163) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2004
A nice, decent microbrew that’s usually on tap in most places in Oregon. Has a nice hoppy flavor, but not over the top like an IPA would have. Has a good balanced flavor, perfect amount of carbonation. A solid pale ale.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2004
nice coppery amber color with minimal head.Does have a soft hop and citrus scent.The flavor is not quite what I expected as it was a little bland but still not a bad beer by any means.Thanks for this Indiana_Red.
