Beyond all other styles of beer, ambers are my preferred favorite. For some reason, the Mirror Pond really hits the mark right on the head for me. There's notes of hop bite, caramel, oak, and flavors of red meat and sausages. I can't explain why, but after drinking German weizens, Belgian doubles and triples, or roasty porters, this beer knocks it out of the park. No harsh after bite or lingering tastes. Crisp, but even on the tongue. I'll be stocking my fridge with this one for quite awhile.
