COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mondo Large Red Ale
From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first space to this oasis 13 years on the road; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers. The Esteemed brewer of California’s best Pale Ale, the Noble Brewer of the planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s Rebel Brewer from Newport. Thirteen years down the road, we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path ourselves, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to have left our footprints on its path into history, at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specially brewed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering. Beer Speaks. People Mumble! O.G. 1.085 76.92 IBU

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2014
22 oz bottle from Biggie Liquors (Conifer) into a pint glass. Light reddish amber and clear appearance with a huge rocky off-white head, slowly diminishing and thick chunky lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, pine, resin, bready malts, toffee, light citrus fruit, earth and bitter hops Similar flavor, strongly sweet with alcohol and light bitterness. Medium to full body with a slick, dull, feel and minimal carbonation. Kind of goopy and messy, probably been sitting on the shelf since last spring/summer. I’ll have to revisit a fresh bottle in the future.

Ferris (2946) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Draft - Huge earthy orange hops and caramel. Clear amber with a rich beige head. Sweet caramel malts and again the earthy malt profile. Bitterness is in the finish but the huge front end sweetness is nice. Almost like an American barleywine.

Masterkush7 (494) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a finger of tan head. Malty aroma, with a roasted malty taste to match. Sweet undertones throughout that cling to the palate, hoppy taste throughout with a mild bitter finish. The alcohol is slightly noticeable in this one.

omega (680) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2013
Yum. Big and rich. Little bit sugary and sweet on the palate, but this helps make the medicine go down.
