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.”

Real nice pale. Sweet, yet still floral, with a nice bitter quality on the finish. I prefer the Orchard Street Pale, from Orchard Street Brewing, but this is darn good.

very fine pale ale. Good aroma, fruity and floral, slight apricot/apple. Wonderfully malty, slightly roasted. Distinctive hop finish.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 Slightly sweet and fruity aroma, with rounded, balanced flavor and finish. The cask version I had at Toronado was superior: the lower effervescence rounded it out and allowed for more detail in the hop aroma and better melding of the front to back.

I drink Mirror Pond every night. It’s the cleanest, freshest tasting beer I’ve ever had. It never gives me a hangover. Perfect flavor, so you can drink them all night long. Clean drinking, good times....

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - APR 27, 2002
Fairly smooth with plenty of grains present in the taste. While the hops are fairly mild they’re still a bit much for me. If you’re a fan of APA this is a must try.

This is an excellent Pale Ale. I was very impressed.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2002
Hoppy to be sure, but also nicely full-bodied. Aroma could be better balanced, as could the taste, but a finely made APA.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - APR 19, 2002
Rich, roasted malt and hop flavors accompanied by a hops, roasted oats, grass nose. Moderate hop bite, medium bodied, and well-balanced...quite enjoyable.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2002
Beautiful golden/amber color, with a hint of bitterness and tons of citrusy hop flavor, alway delicious, great aroma, love to drink it!

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2002
Solid, solid, solid. You can drink this for days. At least I can. Pale is the way to describe the color, and the smell is really average, but the flavor (a hint of bitterness) will win you over. Have one on me.
