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

Cask at GBBF. Clear red -brown beer. Decent cream coloured head. Dry semi crisp palate. Light creamy sweet malt balanced very well with pineapple and grapefruit hops. A little aniseed in the dry finish. Goes down very easily indeed.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
Beautiful amber color. Very nice hoppy and malty aroma; I like particularly the resiny side of the hop. Strong flavor with a medium body strength, strong sweet caramel flavor, that the (strong) hopping balances it quite well, and a long final; the alcohol is warming. Powerful.
