The India Pale Ale from Virklund is brewed according to the proud English ale traditions. This pale amber ale has a beutifully balanced bitterness, that doesn't overwhelm, but gives a delicate opposition to the malt sweetness. A classic English ale that will do well on any lunch table, or accompanying spicy dishes, or just as a reward for a job well done.

Bottle. Hazy brown pour, very frothy stable head. If I had a moustache, it would be soaked. Nose is mainly roasted malts. Taste is malty, with a roasted and nutty note. Very abrupt bitter finish, with a hint of IPA. Mostly reminds me of a christmas ale, with a short bitter spike in the end. Average carbonation.

POLK (2219) - HÝrning, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2011
Good beer from Virklund brewery, however much carbonation. and one must remember that this IPA is brewed with English hops, so it is not nearly as strong hop as many other IPAīs

Rasmus40 (14213) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2011
Hazy amber with lasting off-white head. The nose is medium sweet caramel with peach and a bit of yeast. Tastes much the same only sweeter almost sugary. Onlys lightly bitter. More hops would do this beer good. 150111

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. A lightly hazy beer, golden in color and with a dense, two-finger, off-white head leaving lacings on top. The aroma is peachy with plums, white sugar and a generic fruityness. Some alcohol too. Itís quite sweet in the flavor, with peaches, plums and other fruits. Some bitterness, but far from sufficient to match the sugary sweetness. Medium body, almost sticky, but with enough carbonation to clean the tongue. A beer that didnít ring any of my bells, but itís far from bad. 101009
