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 Californiaís best Pale Ale, the Noble Brewer of the planetís only legal Steam Beer, and Oregonís 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 heroís 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

cblado (298) - Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2008
22 oz bomber. Poured a deep reddish mahogany color, very hazy. Thick head with good lacing also. Aroma was a sugary malt, with hops and yeast present as well. Flavor was great, with hops and malt up front, and a nice floral finish. Wow. I need more of this.

HuskerTan (1567) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle. A- Pine, burnt sugars, malty. A- Ruby color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Burnt caramel, pine, bitter, malty. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Two years ago and Iíve had hated this. Now, I can tolerate stuff like this but still donít fully appreciate it. Starts out malty and filled with caramel and turns into aggressive pine bitterness as it warms. Not really my thing.

bursprak (2305) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2016

willisread (2217) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a pretty copper with a finger of off-white head that lingers. Caramel nose with some light cocoa powder and grapefruit, piney hops. Body feels light for the abv and very drinkable. Clean finish with citrus and caramel. Solid but sterile.

Aroma is metallic, hops, caramel malt, booze, bitter. Appearance is red rust orange, light tan head, slight haze. Taste is fruity, citrus, caramel malt, booze, old person candy, eh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, crisp, fruit candy aftertaste. Overall, eh. Itís decent but nothing to write home about.

cmacklin (768) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2016
355ml bottle. (8.8% ABV) Pours a clear amber-copper with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit and pine. Sweet, fruity flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, grass and booze with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent. A powerful, hoppy brew.

trapped (2120) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 13, 2016
Draught @ Milk and Hops. Slightly cloudy copper red with small foamy off-white head, sweet caramel aroma, medium carbonation, caramel taste with initial sweetness followed by quinine like bitter taste, thin body, long bitter finish. The strange bitterness disrupts the pleasure, could be a lot better.

zubblwump (44) - Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Dark amber with an impressive orange hue head. Smell is really nice...fresh hopiness with some spice maybe? Taste is more rich, more sweet, more full bodied than i I expected from the IPA-like aroma. I think I like this one.

radio_nowhere (1378) - Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle into tulip glass, clear amber-caramel color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt, fruitbowl hoppiness and pine. Taste adds more citrus, resin, toffee, grass bitterness and tad booze. Medium-heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, oily, dry with lingering citrus fruity/pine finish. Great creamy body, nice strong flavor.
