COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who can ignore John Martin’s ale that our ancestors called "the noblest of English Pale Ales". This unique beer of 6% ABV is the fruit of truly exceptional craftsmanship, a unique technique whereby authentic Kent hop-bells are added after brewing.

Hoppy profile, floral notes, golden with a good white head quite persistant, light body, medium carbonation, again floral...a very good beer considering price.

Marko (4953) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2016
John Martin’s Pale Ale. On tap at Harat’s, Zagreb. Clear golden body, not much head. Light soft aroma, plum jam to plum rakija, a tart touch. Sweet soft taste, alcohol, honey, light fruitiness, bitterish end. Quite messy, with clashing flavors. Not my favorite.

Ysok02 (1007) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Roba ambrée, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez sur la farine, puis le houblon, pointe de malt et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque ample, crémeuse, belle bulle et finale amère et onctueuse, à la fois. Une bière agréable, généreuse.

Pours a copper colour, with a small head that fades soon, but leaves a good lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butter, red fruits. Medium to light body, thick palate. God carbonation. Taste is similar to the smell, adding notes of citrus. Good.
