BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Indian Wells Brewing Company
California, United States
mojavered.com

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

A dark amber color with a small tan head and a bit of lace.
Very little aroma. Faint caramel and hops.
Very little taste also. A tiny bit of caramel and a little late hit of hop bitterness.
Not a particularly good beer.

Dark brown and red, thick. Head doesn't amount to much. Aroma was very much of alcohol, a bunch of burned caramel notes.

Taste was way too bitter, lacking 'good' flavors, dark fruit bitterness like a russian imperial stout, what the hell is going on here. Poor example of style and otherwise.

Bottle poured into an Indian Wells Brewing pint glass

A: Pours reddish copper amber with a frothy light tan head that settles to light layer and laces reasonably well.

S: Grainy, butterscotch, fruity, and some dark caramel malt.

T: Fruity, plum and cherry, buttery, plenty of butterscotch, a little toasted malt, and a kinda mineral like tone.

M: Light body, moderate carbonation.

O: I've had this one before and I remember it being at least drinkable. Maybe I just got an old bottle that didn't fare well (no date to be found). As it stands, this is pretty unpleasant.

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.
