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.”

Pours a clear golden orange color with a small white head. Nose is some grapefruit/citrus hops with some apricot and a bit of dark cherry. Sweet taste to start, you then get a small hoppyness midlle that finishes with some more sweetness. Medium body. Excellent well balanced pale.

Brew s a bit hoppy. Not being a fan of pale ales I tried to give a fair rating. It’s probably not bad if you like this style of beer
