Brouwerij De Molen Citra Single Hop (4.8%)

Mandarins and mango, lemon juice, jelly tots and Tizer, and that’s just the smell.
With this little bottle of crisp and beautifully balanced beer De Molen prove again why they’re so well loved by so many.
Citra Single Hop is the colour of honey with a soft foamy head.
The malt is soft but full and round with sticky caramel and a little French bread coated in sesame seeds and white pepper.
And then there’s the hops.
Citra is a hop that used badly can smell of cat wee, but here it’s balanced just right so that all the citrus flavours dance around your palate.
Lychee dryness, orange juice, grapefrfuit skins and lemno pips combine with all spice and a small bag of cheap kids’ jelly sweets to take you by the hand and walk you into a lovely clean, crisp finish.
