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.”

Tap at Cece’s Detroit. Clear amber with short lasting off white head. Caramel, some peach and lime, grassy hops, light leaves, nice malty touch besides the caramel there’s light toast and biscuits. Medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with a bit slick feel.

This pale ale is so smooth. The hops are noticeable but not overpowering. The hops are low in the citrus flavor and all at the front end. On the back end is a touch of sweetness and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darwenus (904) - Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Pours a very clear but dark golden color with lots of foamy head. The aroma is a buttery, warm malt covered with some floral hop notes. The flavor is a smooth, mellow malt with a mildly hop finish. Nothing really distinct from other American pale ales, but among the tasty ones for sure.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a darker orange amber. Aroma is sweet caramel, toasty malts and attractive American hops. Deliciously balanced, clean, and lightly bitter. A standard setting beer.

bigcat03 (273) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUL 3, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Copper orange color with a billowing tan head that leaves nice lacing. Lots of caramel malt in the aroma along with some lemon and pine. Taste is lemon pepper, grapefruit, a touch of pine, grass, and floral hops. Aftertaste is much the same with some added malt that lingers with the lemon. Medium body and carbonation compliment everything else that’s going on. This might be my new favorite summer beer and it’s certainly a welcome break from some of the obscenely hopped IPAs out right now. Not what I would call an APA but tasty regardless of the label.

Banksiz (94) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Bready, minerally nose with a touch of citrus and then a touch of ripe banana ester as it warms up. Pleasant bitterness, mid-malty body, no harshness or overbittering, but no noble hop finesse. A very drinkable pale ale at a moderate 5% ABV.

ciocanelu (1420) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 25, 2016
Amber color with off-white head. Aroma is on the malty side with some bread crust notes and a touch of caramel. Taste is really balanced. Starts with citrus fruits and continues with caramel malts, overall quite floral. A light bitterness on the finish, lingering in the aftertaste too. Medium to light body, smooth feeling but also well carbonated. Overall it’s a nice pale ale but not very aromatic.

eaglebones (104) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. Copper color with short white head. Sweet, floral and malty aroma. Sweet, fruity flavor with hints of citrus. Medium body and carb with crisp finish. Decent pale ale.
