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 Californias best Pale Ale, the Noble Brewer of the planets only legal Steam Beer, and Oregons 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 heros 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

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Copper to amber in color with a medium head of fine beige bubbles. The nose is dominated by citrus (grapefruit, lemon, orange rind) and rye. In the mouth this is medium-bodied and shows the same flavors as found in the nose, beginning with citrus and fading to rye in the midpalate. The hops reappear in the dry/bitter finish. This is fairly simple right now but should age well and hopefully become more complex

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Nice brew. Big, hoppy, grainy beer. Very clear red ale. Nice frothy head. Spicy, bitter and malty all at the same time. Still needs to mellow a bit, but should be tasting really well a few months down the road. I agree with a previous rating that mentions rye. This should be easier to confirm a few months from now once the bitterness dies down a little bit.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Very tasty strong red ale. Tastes like it has a touch of rye in it somewhere, it has that dry spice to it. Not too hoppy or sweet, just a good big drinkable beer that is incredibly balanced. Will definetly be doing this again.

msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Bomber. Pours clear amber with a tanish off-white head. Aroma is piney hops, citrus and malts. Flavor starts with carmel malts, pine and citrus and finishes hop bitterness. Very hoppy brew for what I expected from a "Mondo Large Red Ale" as it is as much IPA as it is a red ale. A pleasent surprise from a brewerly I am starting to like very much..

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2008
hoppy piney aroma with citrus and sweet caramel malts. Pours amber with a thin white head. Pine resin with hints of citrus and caramel malts. It tastes sticky! Very hoppy. Good Beer!

blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2008
A big hoppy chewy red ale, or I guess strong ale in some cases. I was luck when I found bombers of this stuff for $2.49 at a local market of choice.

nuplastikk (6105) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2008
22oz bomber. Attractive brown-amber color. Surprisingly sharp, lemony aroma. This one is big, rich, and deep. Lots of caramel malt flavor, with a hearty, hoppy, bitter backbone. The amber(?) malt balances out quite well with the hops. This one gets extra points for the price. In an era when no one blinks an eye at a twenty dollar 750ml bottle, I picked this one up for around 4.00. Great beer at any price.

Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Pours a reddish brown with a small creamy tan head. This beer smells hopalicious!! I can also pick up on citrus and malts in the smell. Flavor is bitter, piny, malt sweetness, a little roastiness with the hops hiding a little behind the rest of everything. Pretty good brew, everything balances out pretty well.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Pour is clear ruby amber with a thin tan head...smell is citric and resiny hops...taste is faintly toasty sweet at first with a nice resiny bitterness coming out in the finish...
