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.”

On tap at the Vita Cafe in Portland. Had a very subdued character, at first I thought my order had been switched to a lager. Aroma was slight, but present citrus. Significant hop flavor, as one would expect from an APA. Somehow this was earthier though. Body was light-medium, finish was more abrupt than I prefer. In all I’d try it again, but I wasn’t particularly impressed.

Aroma is slightly sweet. Taste is some sweetness mixed with some lightly bitter hops. Overall nothing special.

12floz bottle, $1.50, BBD 07.07.2017, pint glass. "Base camp..." is an apt description for this beer, it’s just simply well crafted without any pretense. Presents itself with light fruit, honey, and cereal grain aroma from a golden-copper body. Drinking wise, it flows easy with a lightly toasted flavor with a lightish-medium bodied palate. I can fall back to this beer anytime.

BeerRenter76 (1007) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 1/9/09. A fairly decent pale ale by Deschutes, A amber body with a thin cap that left decent lace. Aroma was a little piney with some floral hints. Flavor was also of pine with malts balancing it out, slightly bitter finish at first but the taste buds adapted about half way though making the finish smooth. Overall a pretty decent beer.

Itzjerm (2811) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2017
An average pale ale. Some English yeast like flavors with bitterness. Nice head. Body has a creaminess. Average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mirror Pond is your typical WC Pale Ale as a matter of fact it is probably the base WC PA by which all others are compared. There are better Pales but this one never disappoints and is always a great beer when out on the golf course.

blipp (9172) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 15, 2017
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Mild hop bitterness, pale crackery malts, light fruity notes, and a relatively clean finish. Decent.

lbianchi66 (391) - FRANCE - APR 15, 2017
Robe blonde et limpide. La mousse se forme et tient bien. Arômes agrumes et levure. Goût malté, résineux, agrumes. L’amertume est légèrement relevée et bien équilibrée avec le reste des saveurs. Une bonne pale ale.

Nicke80 (715) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2017
33 cl bottle from Ale and Lager, Publika Kuala Lumpur. Pours amber with little head. Sweet caramel and hoppy aroma. Citrus and sweet malty hops taste.
