4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an imperial pint (tulip glass is dirty and Iím feeling lazy). Iíve had this a couple dozen times but never rated it. Pours a nice copper orange color with a small off white head that dissipates reasonable quick. Smells floral, citrus (orange) and light pine with a soft caramel sweetness in the background. Light bread aromas as well. Tastes of sweet malt, soft biscuit and generally balanced malt. Hops are peppery, floral, and piney. Slight citrus in the back but not much. Bitterness is on the outsides of the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and very smooth with medium to high carbonation. Great beer, eminently drinkable. Iíve sessioned this one multiple times.

Bottle at home, Amber pour, good head retention. Slightly hoppy, fruity aroma balanced with heavy caramel malts. Taste is light spice, grains, light fruity hops. Average body, mouthfeel. OK pale ale, just really didnít do much for me.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Surprisingly, one of the best beers and Iíve had in some time. I wasnít expecting it. In fact, I bought a mixed 6 pack of 6 different beers I hadnít tried before. I had 3 New Belgium Brewery beers and 2 Deschutes Brewery beers picked and was looking for a 6th beer. The only reason I grabbed the Mirror Pond was because it balanced the selection with 3 from each brewery. As odd as that probably sounds, that was the informed thought process that led me to this beer. It worked out great. Next time I think Iíll wear a blindfold when I choose beers. Everything about this beer was exceptional, from the appearance, the smell, the taste, mouth feel... However, it was slightly, (VERY slightly) a little dry and grainy in the finish for my tastes, and the after taste was a 9 or a 9.5 out of 10 for me. Other than that, a very well balanced, enjoyable session ale. Definitely on my top 10 list of all-time favorites now.
