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.”

Bottled poured medium orange modest white head. Taste is light hops with a bit of floral citrus. Smooth and relatively crisp. Pleasant enough but nothing exceptional.

storskurk (86) - DENMARK - FEB 28, 2014
Dufter let toffee men fint frisk af aromahumle og lidt malt. Gylden. Fint balanceret pale ale med god maltprofil idet den har tilpas fylde men er på ingen måde overtaget af cara. Ender fint med en kort bitterhed og relativt tør. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Brewski. Mildly cloudy deep orange/amber, foamy thin head, fruity aroma, full bodied hops flavours with a smooth feel. Not too bad at all.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #3. As of this moment the third most rated beer I have not yet rated. Thought I had but somehow I missed it. Luckily I’m vacationing in Kentucky and they distribute here! 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Lexington. Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal, resin hops and crackery and caramel malt notes. The taste is pale malts, a bit of a buttery note, and a fresh citrus hop finish. Medium bodied, refreshing. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderately tan head on it. Nose is pretty light, and has some nice grassy notes to it, but little else. Taste is quite light and an easy drink - slight bitterness with some fresh floral elements to it that makes it quite refreshing. Me gusta.
