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.”

Troobie99 (60) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2002
A classic 'west-coast' pale ale, made with a hearty dose of Cascade hops (and no others), added throughout the boil to impart bitterness, flavor, and aroma. (Gold medal Great American Beer Festival, 1994.) Brewing trivia: this was one of the beers created by current Full Sail Brewer John Harris.

SteveOrz85 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2017
12 oz bottle served in curved pint glass. Some lacing and a thin white head. Beer is a clear golden color. Aroma is faint. Taste is lightly sweet and very little bitter. Very light pale ale. Less Hoppy than many pale ales. A good beer.

355ml bottle. Pours a ruby copper with a white head. Aroma: citrus, grapefruit, biscuity malt, candy orange notes. Taste: citrus, grapefruit, peach, carmael, mild candy orange and mild biscuity malt flavours. Thin to medium bodied. Mild sweetness followed by mild bitterness finish. Moderate carbonation. Watery texture. Easy to drink but not exciting.

Mild pale ale, not as harsh as many of them around here. Makes it easier drinking. But could use more cara malts. Deschutes portland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours up a clear orange color, with a short lasting white head. Aroma is caramel a hint of citrus and mild hops. Taste is similar with Caramel, some citrus and grassy hops, light leaves, nice malty touch to balance. Some light toast and biscuits in there too. Medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle- A great pale ale. Little bit of sweet mixed with the perfect touch of bitterness. Pours with a nice creamy head. One of my favorites right now.

Mirror Pond is the go to Pale Ale. Love to drink this while out trout fishing or even playing a friendly round of golf. Aroma is nice and hoppy and beer finishes clean and crisp. Hats off to Dechutes for producing this classic Pale Ale

Pours out a deep amber color, little tan head that remains through the whole drink. Aroma is nice and doughy biscuits with a clean pine and citrus aroma. Medium carbonation. Taste is caramel forward with a touch of chewing tobacco. Then snappy pine resin, pitch, and orange zest. This is a great example of a pale ale. I put this up there with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but it has less prestige. Great beer, buy it during the fall, can't go wrong.
