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 didn’t 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 didn’t get a fresh bottle this beer would maybe be great but as it stands it is awful...truly

Pours hazy copper with little to no head. Smell is very mild, malt and hops are only distinguishable smells. Taste is a smooth mix of Malts, piney hops, and biscuit. Finish is surprisingly smooth for a pale ale. One of the best pale ales I have had ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[email protected]: pours slightly hazy golden with foamy white head. Fruity, citrusy, slightly earthy hop profile, clean pale ale malt backbone with hint of a caramel. High hop bitterness. Medium body, smoith texture, moderate carbonation.

Mirror Pond is a classic American Pale Ale that really sets the standard for the style. Very nice hop aroma with crystal clear light orange pour perfect carbonation and hop aroma. Taste fresh hops of pine and citrus and great clean finish!

A great example of an American Pale Ale as it exudes sessionability and is a balanced attack of hops and malt

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.

Great Pale Ale. Smells hoppy without tasting too bitter. Unmistakably right

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.
