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.

I was highly unimpressed with this beer. To call this an American Pale ale is a farce in my book as it tasted almost like nothing...if it didnt look so great and feel so good in my mouth I would drink it, move on and never come back. Nose is faint malt. Maris Otter...a little maybe. Crisp cracker like notes and a little bit of brwon sugar style sweetness...boring. Hops promised are nonexistent. If I didnt get a fresh bottle this beer would maybe be great but as it stands it is awful...truly

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.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Mild hop bitterness, pale crackery malts, light fruity notes, and a relatively clean finish. Decent.

Robe blonde et limpide. La mousse se forme et tient bien. Armes agrumes et levure. Got malt, rsineux, agrumes. Lamertume est lgrement releve et bien quilibre avec le reste des saveurs. Une bonne pale ale.

Beaver (1762) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet biscuity caramel malt with a little apple.

The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malt with a little earthy fruit and a light bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an OK malty pale.

Plenty of flavour for a modest style. Ultimately dry with some aniseed. Modest tropical fruits late. Well made as per most beers from this house.

SinH4 (4375) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2017 Bottle, a month before its BB date. Orange-amber color with small head. Aroma is marmalade, floral hops, pale malt, maybe honeycomb melon. Taste is orange marmalade, some bready malts, caramel, some earthy hops as well, slightly bitter finish. Silky mouthfeel. Okay Pale Ale, nothing special though - is this not fresh enough?

Great Classic West Coast pale ale! . Had many of these back in the day and it is just as good as I remember. Mirror Pond has a subtle spice, smooth hops and a medium body. The guys at Deschutes always do such a great job with their beers.
