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

22 oz bomber. 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 barely noticeable in this one.

Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: 0.5L stein glass From: My father-in-law Price: N/A Purchased: Nov. 9, 2013 Consumed: Nov. 13, 2013 Misc.: Thought I had already rated this, but that was the Lucky 13 alt Poured a dark caramel copper clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of white head. Good amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention as well. Best part of the beer by far. Smelled malty floral hops up front. Reminded me of an imperial IPA or DIPA. Earthy, malty, a bit like a strong pilsner. Caramel, bread and rye hops. Tasted pretty close to the smell. Earthy rye hops, heavy malts, caramel, copper, some lemon, pine and a bitter feeling on the tongue after. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Not a big fan of this beer. Part of that was expecting something more with it being Lagunitas, but this just didn’t hit the spot. I would not have it again.

I see a continuous pattern with beer brewed by Lagunitas either tasty or strong but this beer has both. I initially bought it because of the high alcohol content and the old school tattoo flash label. My new favorite deuce-deuce!

lhns03 (69) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours a clear, orangey amber with minimal white head. Aroma’s of strong maltiness with a biscuit nose and some slight orange/citrus notes. Flavors are sweet with a very mild hop bitterness to clean-up at the end. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and fairly well-masked 8.5% ABV. A nice Imperial Red?
