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.

probstblueribbon (3751) - Nepean, Ontario, - MAR 5, 2013
14 oz glass at National Beer Hall (Calgary). Clear amber, small white head. Nice fruity, citrus hops, bread crust and light caramel, a bit too cold, toasty, nice. Medium body, gentle effervescence. Plenty of citrus and fruity hops, decent toast crust and light caramel backbone, refreshing; dry with decent bitterness and a pleasant fruity, lightly malty finish.

tightslice (1071) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is caramel, earthy wet fruits. Taste is fresh fruit and mild earthy malts. Somewhere between a pale ale and an amber. Very balanced and drinkable main-stay type craft beer...but arguably a bit boring.

Excellent flagship pale ale from one of Oregons best breweries. A tad bitter sometimes.

A classic craft beer. It is lightly hopped compared to many of the newer pales on the market, yet still flavorful. A great beer to bring to a BBQ.

chadski (87) - California, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Haven't had this for awhile and coming back to it has lost a bit of its luster. Still good but may suffer a bit from the hop dominated trend at the moment since it doesn't have a very evident bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ozzy70 (892) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 15, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Poured copper, quick dissipating off white head. Aroma was grassy, pine. Taste was bitterness, hoppy, pine, slight sweet.

brigg (634) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2016
(Bottle) Lightly hazy copper body with a medium beige-cream head. Aroma of pale malt, grain, hint of sweet citrus fruit. Very smooth mouthfeel, some soft carbonation. Mild hop bitterness, malty caramel flavor, dry but leaves a hint of a sweet aftertaste. Nothing stands out too much in the flavor but its smooth and drinkable.

PugUglyBrewer (241) - - AUG 22, 2016
A great beer for those that are allured by the hop side of the craft spectrum. THe aroma opens a boquet of slightly sweet and fresh floral dominance with a bit of an earthy tone. The color is a prestine reddish-orange. The mouthfeel is medium in body and exceptionally smooth. The floavor lends a clean malt bill that comes off only slightly sweet, moderately bready and finishes with a pleasantly smooth and hop bittering that does not impart too dryly on the palate.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Alla spina. Biondo chiaro con fragile schiuma bianca. Amarognola e dissetante, un pelo erbacea, corpo medio-lieve. Fresca e buona, ma mi ha deluso un po.

kathouse (1700) - Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Had this several times but finally rating it Light hop aromas of rose and citrus. Body is light caramel, bread, and a mild hop bitterness. Nothing spectacular. Just a solid beer.
