Apparently the League fields at Waitangirua in scenic Porirua were under water this last Tuesday, temporarily freeing My Lord of Malice from child minding responsibilities. Thus, our humble blogmeister was able to enjoy a rare Hashigo Zake new release. Once again, Dutch brewer De Molen were in the spotlights and challenged expectations:
De Molen Lentehop India Pale Lager 6.2%*
Clouds lift at last – it’s science –
Food match: good fish and chips, quiche, lemon cake
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: Dreaming of summer days…
*according to Hashigo zake it’s an IPA fermented as a lager, which some people therefore dub an India Pale Lager.
