More than a few of the Thirsties (Ladies Auxiliary included) are confirmed admirers of Dutch brewer De Molen’s supercharged porters and stouts. So it was that the prospect of an American style IPA from the same source was warmly anticipated.
De Molen Alive & Kicking (6.2% ABV)
Absent sunshine hours
Soft perfume on the palate
Kiss rather than kick
Food match: Cheese scones with a little bit of paprika, chargrilled courgettes with feta
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: tea won’t quite do it!
