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.”

I dont know all the technical terms so i’ll keep this simple. This is a delicious beer, Not the best beer i’ve ever had but far from the worst, I would recommend this to anyone who hasn’t tried it.

Hops, toasted malt, caramel, spice, grass and flowers. Some fruit...orange peel, lemon, blueberries? The hops are fare, dwindled by the sweetness from the fruity sugars. Overall, not bad.

Another review that got lost in a bug or glitch. I do remember this being watery and lacking in all departments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Winston. Clear golden orange with a white head. Aroma is a muted mix of caramel malt and peachy hops. Flavour is a nicely balanced, albeit toned down, mix of caramel malt and peachy, citrusy hops. Dry finish.

Pours a nice golden color with white head. Cereal grain, pine, and some citrus and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with cereal notes.

BrewGoblin (259) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Quite a handsome flaxen fellow this, nice frothy white head too . I usually always pass over Pales but am starting to realize that just having "India" Or "Imperial" attached doesn’t necessarily mean a better beer. Smells and tastes of light pine, caramel, lightly toasted wheat, pineapples and honey. The sweetness is well balanced by mellow citrus flavours. I could session the hell outta this....wait, I have. Creamy mouthfeel as well.

DennisKirk (123) - DENMARK - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle from fakta, 0,35 l. This is a (in my options), a beer with a good light aroma (of its kind) and a nice white head, which stays for at least 2 minutes, the taste is good, just perfect for me, the consistency could be a bit more creamy, but is ok.

Dal9000 (165) - Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours golden with a thick white head. Initial almost dry taste. Mild smooth. I'm looking for something else to say but nothing unique comes to mind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
12 oz bottle from Ponderosa - Evergreen. Amber and pretty clear appearance with a white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of biscuits, toasted grains, pale malts, pine and light citrus hops. Flavor is medium bitterness, light sweetness. Crisp, clean and pretty easy to drink. Average body, ample carbonation. No flaws, but not much going on, pretty simple.
