Who can ignore John Martinís 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.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 La miglior birra che io abbia mai provato. Perfetta ed equilibrata nel gusto. Schiuma persistente e morbida. Per me la birra di riferimento.

tricksta_p (2675) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Pours an amber colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some caramel, slightly hoppy. Average English ale, thirstquencher, not bad but nothing special.

Douberd (3988) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at Cafe Samson, Nijmegen. Poured into a Martinís glass. ABV 5.8% Deep golden orange colour, crystal clear body. One finger of white head sitting on top, good thick density and average retention. Medium thick lacing left on the glass. Aroma has lots of malts on it, then some grass is coming from the back. Taste also with lots of malts, some little caramel, very sweet, at least at first,nicely hopped to my surprise. Light bitterness on the aftertaste that seems to increase in strength and with a good duration. Medium body, good carbonation. Overall okay, nothing to write home about but nothing offensive either.
