In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Deschutes Brewery. The beer is part of their everyday line up of beers. The beer is called Mirror Pond Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog on their beers, you know the history of this beer. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
It has a clear copper color with a white head on the beer. The smell is a malty citrus to it. The taste is a carbonation earthly with a dry citrus aftertaste to the beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
If you could only listen to one album forever, what would it be? At least there’s Mirror Pond when it comes to Pale Ales.
Here is a description from their website (www.deschutesbrewery.com):
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.”
Malt: Pale, NW Pale, Crystal, Carapils Hops: Cascade

Closing, this is not my favorite beer from this beer company. I am really not a fan of this beer. I pick it up because every time I go west and have this beer. There is better Pale Ales in our market here in Chicago. Just because I do not like it does not mean you will not like this beer. Please go try this beer and let me know what you think. I am serious. I want to hear your thoughts if you like or not, please let me know. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
