Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue VII:

Brewed for their 13th anniversary. Hot label of an old-school pinup girl holding a pint with a horseshoe rocker. As for being a "Mondo Large Red Ale" ... let's find out.

Drops out of the bomber with some nice clarity and a red-stained copper color with a creamy, beige lacing that clings as it settles. Caramel, light brown sugar, alcohol esters, plum and guava. Hmm ... a malt bomb? Oh yeah. Toasty, nutty, caramel, biscuit, turbinado sugar, earth, brown bread, and tons of sweet, toasty grains. Light alcohol spice infused with some soft pepperiness and herbal tea-like hop characters. Some pungency and juiciness too. Finishes sweet, more tea, toasty and dry with granola linger.

Mondo. Check. Large. Redundant, and check. Red. Check. Ale. Check. A malt-a-licious surprise, and there's just enough hops to balance things out without stealing the show--you can't even tell it's 76.92 IBU. Hoist one. Happy 13!

One of the best examples of a red ale you will find. A round, pungent blast of super strength. You cannot go wrong. Lagunitas cares, you should as well.
Get a hold of any of their beers, except for the PILS, which I think is a wasted effort. Also, try not to drink too much, as in the brewery in general. It will wash your palate away, and you'll be hunting for a great stout or porter to revive your palate. You will know. Thanks Lagunitas, you guys make great brews!

A: Gorgeous red, like a red head in color

S: Not sure what I'm detecting here . . . Pleasant none the less

T: Very nice, yummy red ale. Reminds me of Hairy Eyeball but not as hoppy

M: Solid feel, Full bodied, prickly, good carbination

O: Not a wow beer for me but very yummy. This would be good in the fall and spring (might be a spring seasonal not sure though) Seen that this was a Lagunitas beer so I hadto try . . . Lagunitas has become a brewery that I have to try everything I see.
