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.”

Excellent session beer, I have knocked out a couple hundred bottles of this since I turned 21 and I never regret it. Nice hazy amber pour with a big ol head. Big cascade hop flavor over the top of a decent malt profile makes for one tasty little beer.

Got a six pack of bottles. Poured easy with a thin head. Well carbonated, Pungent sweet hop aroma, light malts. Nice color, with a small amount of haze. Taste is smooth with a clean finish. Malty grains are overpowered by the hop flavour that is flowery not bitter. Some nice malts come into play while drinking giving it more ballance. Great thirst quencher. I plan to buy this one again.

Copper colored and clear in look with a beige colored head. Smell is hops, malts, flowers, and sweet. Taste is hops, grass, flowers, light bitterness, and some malts. Not bad.

ours acopper orange with a tan headaroma of cascade and full malt nicely balanced slight bitterness on the tongue almost no real hop bite more like a copper ale than a pale in that regard good beer but not as strong in the flavor department as I prefer, possibly the lack ABV% results in less hop flavor to maintain the superior balance.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - NOV 28, 2008
A decent pale ale, but by no means life-changing. Has a good alcohol burn, suprisingly, despite its tame 5.3%. Sweet on the nose and hearty in the mouth with the usual suspects present in an American pale ale along with an almost salty/beefy flavor in the background. Overall, good. I can dig it.

<b>Bottle 355ml.</b>
Unclear medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, moderate hoppy, grapefruity. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (050808)

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Pours with a large, fluffy, off-white head. Clear honey orange body. Head diminishes but leaves good lacing. Aroma is nice and piney with a bit of citrus, some soap and and caramel. Taste is soapy and malty with bitter hops at the finish. Creamyish mouthfeel, light bubbles.
