I conducted my own little blind taste test with all three of Deschutes Pale Ales. Here is the result for Mirror Pond...

A: Dark gold with a fairly big fluffy head that is leaving lots of lacing as it melts.

S: Just how I like a Pale Ale to smell, good presense of both Hops and malt. The sweet malt is more noticable than the hops.

T: There is a good strong malt presense, followed by bitter, but not horribly strong hops. The finish and aftertaste are both bitter, the aftertaste lingering for awhile after you've swallowed.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and a good amount of carbonation

D: A good example of a Pale Ale. Not the best I've ever had, but one I would get again.
