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.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Poured an earthy/amber color with a decent oak hued head. Citrus and soft evergreen hops are prevelent in the first wif and give way to a solid malt balance aided by toasted malts. The taste starts with the piny hops but its the malt flavor that dominates. It is a darkish malt similar to molasses. A little more hop balance in the mouth would have made this a much better pale. Not bad, ill drink it again.

Good brew overall. Tried on tap an Macayos. Thick head, citrus flavor, impressive hop taste. Not great, but a good American Pale Ale. Worth trying.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2004
Pale amber colour with no head. Caramel malt aroma, light grapefruity hops. Flavour is well-balanced with a sweet caramel front and PNW hoppy flavour. Not quite bitter enough though.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - NOV 27, 2004
This is a pretty tasty APA. Malty with a noticable hop presence. Balanced pretty well but on the sweeter side of the finish. I like APAs with a little more hop bitterness on the end. Very nice. Probably in my top ten for the style.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Very tasty English malted, mixed hop Pale ale. The aroma was mild, but fresh and complex. The flavor was orange and goat cheese - strange but good. This beer has one of the the cleaner finishes of the style. A great non-threatening pale.
