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

olsvammel (5824) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2016
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Fairly mild smell with some light hop notes. More hops in the taste and it is backed by a sweet cookie malt base. Much better taste then smell.

OrthoDoc (171) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Amber colored with thick head. Aroma is sweet malts and hops, sorta hard to describe but the nose says 'yes please'. Taste is very sweet caramel malts with hops in the background. Can't describe what the hops are bringing but it seems to balance the malts nicely. Smooth velvety mouthfeel with pretty clean finish. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
