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.”

joepa66 (2) - New Philadelphia, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2014 does not count
Pour is a deep golden with a moderate tan head that thins quickly but lasts throughout. A light caramel notes on the aroma. Not a bitter beer at all and it has a lIght dry hippiness. The finish is dry and crisp with a little oak ones sat the finish. Very drinkable and very likable. Quite a nice surprise and a great twist on pale ales.
