Denmark Brewing Co. Valhalla Ale. This hopped up ale in a 22 oz bomber, pours a decent amber color, with a wee bit of haze. The head somewhat weak, but leaves a nice bit of belgian lacing. The aroma is somewhat light with a bit of a hoppy scent. The taste falls between a standard ipa and an american double ipa. Decent piney resiney hop flavor would make any hop head happy, but it also has a decent malt base as well. Well made and worth checking out if you are in Wisconsin.

Valhalla Ale tastes, looks, and feels more like a British-style bitter than a typical American Pale Ale. That can be a good thing that makes it jump out from the pack of tepid Pacific Northwest clone pale ales that seem to be popping up across the country. This ale is also brewed using Briess's certified organic malted barley.

This amber ale pours with a below average carbonation level, which only gives rise to a slight white head that reduces quickly to a collar around the inside of the glass.

The aroma is very mild with primarily malt and fermentation aromas dominating. I did not detect much of a hop nose at all, and those that are present appear to be English hops or their American cousins.

The taste is very mellow, with bread and slight caramels flavors blending with a plum taste in the middle and then finishing with a slight sweetness. Not much hop presence at all in the flavor, making the moderate body feel a bit slick in the mouth.

This is a nice try at a British style session ale.
