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.”

MWMBeerguy (170) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Drank beer about 3 weeks before the best before date. I got a sweet, crystal almost sour note. No hops. Thankfully not an oxidized crystal malt flavor but sweet with no hops. Either old or just not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
