The Mirror Pond was a light beer all around. The aroma, appearance, flavor were all light. The aroma was crisp with some fruity and floral hits to it. The appearance was an orangey and gold. The flavor was also a fruity/flowery combo. The beer overall was an excellent version of an APA.
Serving type: on-tap

4/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The “BEST BY” date printed on the label is “11/08/13.”
Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is golden amber. Two fingers of dense, buttery, eggshell-colored head settled slowly and unevenly in places.
Smell: It offers a nice malty base with a tinge of enticing citrus. Caramel and lightly toasted malts, earthy hops, orange peel, tangerine, and grapefruit.
Taste: The hops and bitterness are upfront at first, which I like. It also has a slightly coarse mouthfeel. Earthy hops, pine resin, lemon, orange peel, tangerine, and grapefruit. As the beer continues to warm, the caramel and toasted malts emerge and begin to balance the hops.
Drinkability: This is tasty and very drinkable. There are better pale ales out there, but this is definitely a pale ale and not an IPA wannabe.
Serving type: bottle
