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.”

This is a great American Pale Ale. Perfect balance between Malt and Hops. It’s not really wild and crazy it is just a good drinkin’ beer. I like it!
