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

In a tulip from a bomber. Smells like hops with some brown sugar but very thin and not a lot of aroma. The taste is hops, caramel, not a lot of malt, but very good for an Imperial red. Meduim, non-carbonated, thin palate. Every year I drink this I like it more and more. Is there a better red beer...?

Smakrik och fyllig. En aning söt och inte så värst besk. Alkoholen värmer helt klart.

Garlic_of_Doom (626) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours amber with a huge frothy off white head, no retention, nice lacing. Aroma has canned pineapple, cookie dough, spicy grains. Taste is sweet with caramel, pine and surprisingly low bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth yet dry mouth feel. Short, warming and lingering bitter after taste.
I was expecting something more aggressive, perhaps full bodied and super bitter. This is a pretty balanced American Strong Ale and as usual from Lagunitas, solid.

OminouSC2 (424) - SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2016
8,8% ABV. Amber color, medium beige head. Syrup bread aromas, some pine hops, raisins, figs and fruits. Sweet taste of ripe fruits, caramel and bread, with a slight bitter and herbal finish. Noticeable alcohol. Balanced and good.

FunkyF (831) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2016
Flaska från SB. Brunröd med smutsvitt skum. Knäckig och fruktig doft. Smak av kola och karamell.

SvanteL (257) - SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad, disig med medelstort gräddfärgat skum. Stor fruktig doft med många söta frukter: aprikos, mango, ananas, apelsinmarmelad, plus lite knäckiga toner. Smaken har stor fruktsötma, mycket aprikos och ananas, pomeransmarmelad, fruktgodis, men så kommer en precis lagom beska smygande och balanserar upp. Lång välbalanserad eftersmak. Munkänslan är härligt tjock och lite oljig. En alldeles underbar öl för oss som gillar söta frukter men ändå vill ha bra beska.

KUEric (936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2016
This is delicious. Like really, really tasty. Pours a nice little amber, reddish undertoned brown little with a soft little head. Aromas of malt and hops in balance -which is something I’d say for the flavor usually but somehow the aroma meets that. Impressive. The flavor is very well balanced as expected. And utterly delicious.

Rödbrun med ett vitt skum. Söt och trevlig med fin humleprofil. Lite alkohol son värmer. Funkar ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samuel214 (494) - SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2016
Flaska från SB. Kopparröd med beiget, gräddigt skum. Stor rågig doft med tydlig beska. Inslag av kåda, kola, butterscotch, knäck, karamell, bitter apelsinmarmelad och lite nötiga toner. Mellanstor, len kropp som sväller i munnen. Ligger nära doften i smaken, dock något lättare smakmässigt. Påtaglig beska med mycket granskott och lite söta knäck- och kolatoner.
