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.”

Tried it myself, Derrick, and I agree it’s great. Beautiful color, and the yeast floaties let you know you’re drinking something nice. Deschutes Brewery scores again!

Nicely hoppy although a bit mild for my tastes. A damn good ale nonetheless. A slightly weak finish leaves it a bit lacking in final impression but don’t take my word for it try one yourself.

This amber colored pale ale has a feintly hopped aroma that is proportionately present in flavor as well. A smooth, drinkable APA with a light mouthfeel and, soft hopping.

Good beer from my hometown in Bend, OR. The beer from that Brewery is far better than most things that come out of this town.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - FEB 25, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Great west coast pale ale-very similar to sierra nevada, but with less bite. many memories drinking this with my buddies at Mt Rainier during the summer 2001 ReRate-still an excellent brew-subtle spice, smooth hops and a medium body. Nice!

Beerfreak99 (2) - USA - FEB 23, 2002 does not count
A good rendition of the style. Hoppy, but not overly so. Just enough of a ’bite’

Fantastic pale ale. Almost as good as Burning Bird. Beautiful hop flavor and aroma, excellent and clean malt character.

My favorite beer I’ve ever had. I’ve tried many, and I still find myself sticking to this one. Doesn’t get any better.
