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.”

3.7
afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle courtesy poonpillager. Pours a clear pale copper with a one finger off-white head that fades to a ring leaving some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with sweet malt and light caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.

3.6
vulcanmeister (290) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pours dark amber from the bottle with a rich creamy head that stands up vigorously. Bouquet is floral and piny. Bitterness come through with carmel, nuts, and grapefruit. Mouth feel lacks a bit, but nice echo of bitterness and floral presence. One of my favorite ipas!

3.3
Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 30, 2008
On tap. The pour was a dark gold / light copper color. A one-finger tall white that produced good lacing. The aroma was subdued, but malt and light citrus came out. Faint hints of floral with pine not really being a player in this one. The flavor was nice malt cut with tart citrus and some dry floral hoppiness. Unremarkable, but inoffensive mouthfeel. Decent.

3.4
topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Poured a light amber. Aroma of sweet malts and hops. Flavor is milder than I expected. More malty and fruity than hoppy. Still a very nice beer.

3.5
dalekliz (922) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
On tap at Port Carlsbad. Hazy amber with a nice creamy, white head that lingers. Hoppy aroma, a bit sweet, with hints of fruits. Lighter, hoppy taste. Light lingering bitterness. Very refreshing and tasty.

2.8
marcus (10354) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
This golden amber ale poured wiith a nice beige head. There is a nice malt base with gentle hopping Tastes something like an English bitter.

3.5
ilovedarkbeer (2742) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2008
On tap. Pours an amber color with a creamy white head that quickly dissappears. Nose is fruity and hoppy and floral. Taste is refreshing, smootha and a somewhat malty. A very drinkable pale ale that goes down easy and mild. Not bad.

3.5
elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 13, 2008
sampled on Maui, from bottle. Cascade hop scent and flavor. This is a nice session brew with medium sweetness and a mildly bitter hop finish, similar to Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale. Could have used a little bolder flavor in the finish, but would have again.

3.5
