Lucky 13 Mondo Large Red Ale
Greetings all and welcome to a Monday edition of Draught Pick. Before we get to the beer, I need to shamelessly promote a friend’s new “radio” station on Grooveshark called Suspicious Chihuahua. Check this out:
It’s a pretty extensive mix of Rock, Country, Top 40, Alternative, Oldies, and other odd bits I’m sure you’ve never heard before. I’ve been listening all day and I haven’t heard a song I don’t like yet. Please check it out.
Now let’s get to the beer! A usually fine red out of Lagunitas…
Nice copper/amber pour with a little over a finger of head and nice lacing as the glass empties. The nose is sweet malts, earthy hops, toffee. Flavors are excellent: very malty, citrus hops, grains, caramel, and a nice ABV warmth. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. This is very, very good!
PS - what’s in your glass tonight?
