Since Spring is – theoretically at least – in the air, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about warm weather beers. Happily, the new release at Hashigo Zake Cult beer bar this week was a toothsome golden ale from Dutch favourites De Molen.
De Molen Spick & Span Golden Ale (6.2% ABV)
Cleaner than it looks
Spring’s Eternal butterscotch
It’s pretty murky
Food match: beetroot pickled eggs, tempura
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: watching Malice mow his lawn, sitting beside the Bosphorus watching the locals
