Brouwerij De Molen Engels (4.5%)

Oh my, I drink beer from so many different breweries from all over the place and yet as soon as I open a bottle from De Molen everything else pales into insignificance just a little bit.
Engels is a soft focussed beer that lounges in your glass the colour of home made apricot jam, holds a delicate cloudy head and smells of mandarins and foam sweets.
The Pale and Cara malts are comfortable cushions made of chewy fudge and surrounded by lashings of grape juice, apricots and honey glazed satsumas.
Engels’ hops are snappy but in no way aggressive.
They pinch you gently, waking you to the lemon rind bitterness, grapefruit pith dryness, orange juice meatiness and hazel bark that leaves the kind of soft earthy finish you can dream about.
I may have to stop reviewing Brouwerij De Molen or people will start talking.
