BEER HAIKU #48 De Molen Lentehop India Pale Lager

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.

Clouds lift at last – it’s science –

Floral explosion

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.
