Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: PorterPounder on 08-24-2003

A smooth red lager without the bite. We use four types of specialty-malted barley and two types of hops, Hallertau and Cascade, which are added at the exact point in the brewing cycle to create the ideal quality blend of aroma and taste. We use our own proprietary strain of lager yeast, and all of our beers are brewed with our own on-site natural artesian spring water from the historic Indian Wells Spring. Mojave Red is lagered for several weeks, then finished to our exacting standards.

I always look for local brews when I travel. The store down the road only had Mojave Red, and I can honestly say I really enjoy it. I'm not always a lager drinker, but it's smooth and balanced. I will definitely keep this in mind for the next time I am out in the Mojave area.

A: poured from the 12oz bottle into the pint glass. Average all aroun

S: faint malt backbone with some fruity tones of berry

T: very mild. Pretty much a bready malt center with some citrus notes around. A bit of hop bitterness balanced by some fruity berry sweetness.

Overall nothing special but not bad. Wouldn't turn this down but wouldn't seek it out or buy from a store.

A: Looks like a red ale, nice color but little head that dissipates quickly.

S: Mildly floral smell. Slightly less difficult to capture a waft, compared to Lobotomy Bock.

T: Taste is similar to Lobotomy Bock--very plain but moderately refreshing. Finishes pretty cleanly--I appreciate the red ale residue, and it's the only part of this brew that has some punch.

M: Watered down, thin, pleasant enough.

O: If you find most Red Ales too strong, then you may like this beer. Otherwise, it is a lackluster brew that feels like it's holding back. I really want to like this beer, but it just doesn't have enough of the primary characteristic I require--taste.
