This bar is very new. How new was made apparent when I decided to give them a try, only to discover that they didn't have much cheese on offer. Well, to be blunt, all they could offer was a toasted cheese sandwich - a very good one, mind you, with really tasty bread filled with herbs and void of any ghastly sugar.
[Sadly I forgot to take a picture of one.]
I'll be quite frank. I'm not much of a beer drinker, preferring vodka and whiskey myself. This is a synopsis of my brief experimenting.
I also tried a Scottish beer called 5 A.M. Saint from Brewdog. This is a red ale and (I've been told, though have yet to confirm) is the style of beer that has come to dominate the U.S.A.'s market.
[Proof for my friends that I on occasion I do get down from my high horse and engage in the drinks of the common people.]
Next on the list of De Molen drinks to be consumed was Bommen & Granaten (translated as "Bombs & Grenades") which is actually a barley wine. It's a lot heavier than the other beers at 15% alcohol, though not as potent in flavour as a stout.
Last on my list for this round is Pijl & Boog (translated as "Arrow and Bow"). It's a strong pale ale at 10% and it has a rather pleasant taste. I would say more, but I didn't get to taste a lot of this drink as it wasn't mine, but rather my girlfriend's.
